Do you feel you are always behind the curve? We all have many questions about life and our purpose here on this earth.

Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the difficult days come…

Ecclesiastes 12:1

Difficult Days to Come

The good teacher encourages us to serve God during our most productive years. As a person grows older, difficult days come. It’s not only a matter of quality of life but of quantity. As we get older, we have fewer years to serve. 

Our Limited Lives

Barring the unforeseen, the Bible tells us how long we might expect to live:

“The years of our life are seventy, and if by reason of strength eighty;

 yet their length is toil and sorrow, for they soon end, and we fly away (Psalm 90:10).”

Our Only Shot

We want productive and meaningful lives. A purposeless life is a wasted gift. This isn’t a trial run; it’s our only chance. Let’s make the most of it!

Work Toward Your Dreams

As a child, you were probably asked what you wanted to be when you grew up. Most children have some idea, but most don’t end up doing what they dream of. And that’s ok. But it is a good thing to start preparing for our dreams. The earlier we prepare, the more time we have to achieve and live out our ambitions.

Everyone’s Different

Each of us serves in various ways and lives with a different purpose. Every responsible person treasures the gift of life. What you do with your life can count for eternity. It’s worth making life count!

Give it Your All

Whatever your hands find to do, do with your strength; for there is no work or planning or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol, the place where you are going (Ecclesiastes 9:10).

Listen to Your Intuition

Don’t do what I did. In the back of my mind, I knew I’d be a writer someday. But I didn’t take that intuition seriously, so I didn’t prepare myself. I hated English, so I didn’t pay enough attention to basic grammar rules or develop my writing or speech skills in school. 

Save Yourself Grief

I struggle through it, and the new grammar-checking programs help immensely. But it would have saved me much grief if I’d been disciplined and learned in school when I had the opportunity. A person can make up for some of what they missed, but it’s not the same. An older mind doesn’t learn new information as quickly, and what we know never gets as rooted as it does when we learn early in life.

Don’t be Behind the Curve!

Because I didn’t prepare myself when I had the opportunities early in life, I feel I’ve been behind the curve, struggling to catch up. Please pursue your dreams and prepare yourself early in life. Make the best of the opportunities you receive and make your life count for good for eternity.

The Prayer of Salvation

Jesus, I don't know You, and I don't know what Your plan is for me. But thank you for coming to die in my place. I'm sorry for anything I've ever done wrong in my life. I don't understand how You could ever forgive me, but if You really would, I would like to accept your free gift of grace and complete forgiveness. Please come into my life and take control, and help me trust You. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
