HE Wept

Well, I opened my bible before work, it opened to “Jesus Wept”, John 11:35, I had always heard it was the shortest verse in the bible.  But I never knew where it was.  Or had even read it in the bible that I remember.   Why did he cry, I never really thought about it.   I think it was because he knew the reality in heaven.  I guess I didn’t think about that yesterday when I was upset, angry whatever you want to call it.  Doug didn’t die, he ascended.  I know he believed!  I think Jesus wept because he was the source of all hope of a future day of resurrection.  Even Jesus shed tears.  Guess that gives me some comfort.  Yes it gives me comfort.  I don’t know if anyone has ever seen that internet site that claims to predict when you will die.  http://www.deathclock.com/  after you answer a series of questions, your projected date of death appears along with a digital clock counting down the number of seconds you have left to live.   It’s all based on current life expectancy charts, but seeing it on a computer screen makes it more vivid.  As the site says, it’s the Internets’ friendly reminder that life is slipping away.

I didn’t put this site on here for any morbid reason.  I know that God in His wisdom doesn’t tell us the day of our death, nor do we know the day of Christ’s return.  We don’t need to panic aw we see our time slipping away.  Instead live every moment for Him!

Living the moments of our life as they come is wise. We miss much by worrying about tomorrow. After all, the God who was with us yesterday and today, will be there too. Hugs, Derek. Barb

So sorry about your friend.

I totally agree.  Live the life for Him!  We should concentrate on building treasures in Heaven versus material things here on earth.  Easier said than done I suppose, but with God we can do anything.

So true what you say about living every moment for Him.  This includes the joys and the sorrows of each waking day... Hugs, Derek.
