“Looking at Life” by Chuck Swindoll
As we look back [on our lives], one overriding thought eclipses all others. It’s not new nor very profound, but it’s the truth: LIFE IS SHORT.
As we look ahead, we again see one major message. And it’s neither new nor profound, but it sure is true: LIFE IS UNCERTAIN.
Well then, since life is so brief and uncertain, how should we view our present?
I suggest there are three words that adequately and accurately describe the present: LIFE IS CHALLENGING.
Because it is short, life is packed with challenging possibilities. Because it is uncertain, it’s filled with challenging adjustments. I’m convinced that’s much of what Jesus meant when He promised us an abundant life. Abundant with challenges, running over with possibilities, filled with opportunities to adapt, shift, alter, and change….
With each new dawn, life delivers a package to your front door. When you hear that ring tomorrow morning, try something new. Have Jesus Christ answer the door for you.
Life’s most challenging opportunities are often brilliantly disguised as unsolvable problems.
