All Night Long–Never Ending Life

Joan Winifred

Morning fog was thick…time was thin

sky like night…cloudy sun light!

How do you safely get from point a to point b or from c to z?! (or in other simple words: get the kids to school safely?) Drive slowly with lights on & follow directions/familiar route; logical strategy, eh? (Here in FL we had a dense foggy morning, the other day, which made driving intense journeying even a short distance.)

Which got me thinking about finding our way in life…amidst all the dense fog, smog & mirages…illusions/fake oasis of this world and its offerings, etc. that can deadly distract us from a safe destination to…e-v-e-r-l-a-s-t-i-n-g-…………………………………………………………..LIFE

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has even put eternity in their heart; yet mankind will never find out the work that the true God has made from start to finish.” (Eccl. 3:11)

One thing i’ve learned is…man cruel is not gonna give me life eternal; just look at the global blood bath on any given day.  Or look at man’s resume of cruelty/crimes against compassion centuries-long.

“Some tortoises live for 150 years, and some trees for 3,000 years. By contrast, the human life span is much shorter.”

What king/politician on the planet can offer me…life like a tree? Sovereignty…belongs to the one without a beginning and without an end..and what man qualifies?!

“Jehovah lives forever. He does not die. He is the Source of life, so he can give everlasting life to others.”

Seriously, what can i give to anybody of any lasting value? (HOPE? etc.)

A spiritual solution to our finite/material dilemma:

We can receive endless life only from God. So, we do well to draw close to him by getting to know him. The Bible likens taking in knowledge of God to taking in food. (Matthew 4:4) Eating food is enjoyable, but obtaining and preparing our food requires effort. Similarly, taking in spiritual food requires effort. But what could be more worthwhile than drawing close to God and receiving everlasting life? (all excerpts taken from article: Can You Live Forever?)

Thinking about it…”endlessness”…and what could be accomplished in the way of compassion–when time doesn’t matter–(always having enough of it and everything else needed)!
