Unleash Your Inner Warrior
Hello, and welcome to my website, and my brand new blog. This blog is something that has been on my heart for quite some time now, but this week God prompted to me start writing. He told me that time is precious. Time is currency. We can always get more money, or even get money back--but we cannot get time back. Once we have spent it, it is gone. This week, that reality hit home harder than it ever has before.
We never know how much time we have left on this earth, or how much time we have left with our loved ones. They could be taken from us very suddenly, or we could lose them slowly to a dread sickness, never knowing when death will finally take them. I have a real sense of urgency about this reality now. If you love
someone dearly, but are constantly engaged in battle with them, how much are you really loving them? How much are reflecting Christ to them? If either of you were to leave the house angry, and something were to happen to you, would you have gotten to say goodbye, knowing that you loved one another? Or would it be a bitter loss than ended with a fight, and no chance to forgive, to tell that precious someone that you loved them, and how much they truly meant to you?
I was speaking to someone not so long ago about her father, who has alzheimer's. She told me that he could not even remember her. Because the disease has so claimed his mind and memory, there is no resolve for all the things that happened in the past. There is no chance at reconciliation, no chance for forgiveness in their family in a way that is impactful, because he cannot even remember who they are. I cannot help but realize that I would want issues to be resolved, for their to be true repentance and true forgiveness between my loved ones and I, should a disease like that claim their minds.
Our time in earth is getting shorter and narrower. Ask yourself today who you have been engaging needlessly in battle with. Who have you been fighting, that you should be loving? How can you resolve those issues, and make sure that love is known? Find a way to work through those issues quickly, with God's help (not out of your own strength), and make sure that your loved ones know they are loved. Fight for love, so that you know if you were to lose your loved one in an instant, through the pain, there would be peace and love--not bitter loss.
Our time is precious. We never know how much time we have left with other people. So make sure you live like every moment could be your last. Love like every moment with someone could be your last. Love like Jesus loved: Relentlessly.
Peace be with you,
