Before It's Too Late

"Here is a small fact: you are going to die." - The Book Thief

Sorry if that came as a shock to you, but it's an important thing to know. You are not invincible. Your life on this earth isn't endless. You may live well into your nineties and see your great grand children grow up, but there are no guarantees. It could all end tomorrow. Or today. There is no way to know.

And yet, we spend (more likely, waste) our time like it is unending. 
'Eh, I'll write that novel next month.'
'I'm just too tired, I'll do it later.'
'Not right now, later.'

What if all of those later's turn into never's?

Our time on earth is a precious gift from God; He doesn't want us to waste it. We only get to live here once.

So go do what you've been putting off, don't wait until tomorrow.
 Your future self will thank you.


  1. Sometimes for me, thinking about my mortality turns into what stops me from enjoying my life, though. Like, if I think too hard about anything, I can come up with a reason to avoid doing whatever because there's a risk involved. It's tough! But I think there's a way to keep the thought at the middle of your mind, instead of the front (or the back!).

  2. Amen! Great post--short and to the point with an excellent message!
