Borrowed time

Who am I in Christ? These words have been haunting me lately. Am I fooling myself thinking because I do some good deeds this is enough to get me into God’s kingdom. Am I letting go all that entangles me, even my relationships? Do I let circumstances take me down or do I let circumstances bring me to my knees? Do I run to the cross or do I run to the world when in need. What kind of treasures am I looking for, eternal or self full filling? Do I yearn for the word and seek it out before anything else.

He was famous many years ago before Veggie Tales knocked him off the charts. He wasn’t a silly vegetable he was a talking book! So every time he sang the word “WHERE” it was loud and almost screechy! Well yesterday that was what I heard all day long  a loud and screechy “WHERE” I found my self asking “WHERE” is my joy, “WHERE” did it go? Why don’t I laugh as much as I once did? Why does life seem so serious and sad to me now? Is this what happens when you get older, the reality of life...
