I Don’t Have Time To Die ~ October 23

I Don’t Have Time To Die

And, I’m too busy to worry about it

A time to die…. Ecclesiastes 3:2

I have no fear of death; to me, it is the ultimate reward; it is the point in time when we will see the face of God and feel His embrace as we begin eternity in His loving presence. On the other hand, I do not seek death or long for it. I know God has me here for a reason and until my part of His plan is finished I will remain here.

We all wonder why some die young, and I don’t know the answer. But, I will say God works all things to our good, and I am certain one day He will make this mystery of life and death clear to us. Death is definitely a mystery, and the most intriguing aspect of life is it must end.

I contend a large part of the mystery is solved when we can fully accept our spirit is not held prisoner by the body it inhabits and it is only the life of the body that must end. When our body is destroyed by accident or disease, our spirit remains intact and goes on to spend eternity with God in Heaven.

Our bodies are merely machines our spirits inhabit while on this earth. They have a purpose—we have a purpose—and when we have done our part here, we will leave this earth and these bodies behind. If we love God, we will never die.
