The end of the road: Everything can change in a split second

April 15, 2012
Psalm 121:8 The LORD keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.
Cars and pedestrians sometimes just don’t mix. I live and work in a large city, so I share my life with cars, trucks, buses and an assortment of other vehicles.  I cross very busy streets on foot each day without giving it a thought. Most of us who live in large, heavily congested cities never think about all that traffic, it goes with big city life which I enjoy and would never trade. J
The sound of screeching tires about two feet from me recently got me to thinking: I could have been hit by a car…my life could have been over!  I had just stepped onto the pavement after crossing a major street when a car came barreling out of nowhere, and made a screeching halt just under the red light signal. This startled me – what if I had slowed my pace while crossing? I would more than likely be dead.
I share this story because none of us are guaranteed a specific number of days on earth.

·       Are you making wise use of your time?

·       If your life was to end, would those who love you say that you accomplished your goals and God-given purpose?

·       Have you taken time to love people, to make your life count and to use your abilities and gifts in service to those who need you the most?

·       Have you made a difference as a disciple of Jesus Christ?

God help me live a full life that will make you proud of me. And, keep all of us safe from harm. In the powerful name of Jesus Christ - Amen!

Scripture: Psalm 92:12-15
Psalm 92:
12 Good people will prosper
    like palm trees,
    and they will grow strong
    like the cedars of Lebanon.
13 They will take root
in your house, LORD God,
    and they will do well.
14 They will be like trees
that stay healthy and fruitful,
    even when they are old.
15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

Human life no longer matters

I'm deeply troubled and you should be, too. 

The sanctity of human life no longer matters. I'm outraged at the killing of yet another black man - two in one day - by police in this country. This is terrorism aimed at people of color. It is NOT acceptable - we are ALL created in God's image. 
Christians can't be quiet - no matter your color.
Philando Castille was shot and killed by police as he reached for his license while his girlfriend and child watched. The video making the rounds should make you cry - it could be your husband, son or brother!!

Stop and pray for his family and friends. Pray for Alton Sterling's family. Mr. Sterling was killed by police earlier in the day in Baton Rouge. 
This madness must stop. This is NOT okay. 
Genesis 1:27 So God did just that. He created humanity in His image, created them male and female.
