Your time on earth is just a small pinpoint in eternity. It’s a tiny train stop of a few years when put into the timeline of infinity. And yet this stop is one of the most important times in your existence. It’s the only place that you will be able to do certain things and learn and grow in certain ways.
It is by no means an irrational fancy that, in a future existence, we shall look upon what we think our present existence, as a dream.—Edgar Allan Poe
What is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.—James 4:14 Is life so short? Does it only appear for a little time and then vanish away? Then let us put all we can into it. If life is short, it is wisdom to have no fallows, but to sow every foot of ground while we can. It will be prudent to pack our little space as full as possible. Let us put plenty of life into our existence, plenty of work into our life, plenty of heart into our work, and plenty of warmth into our heart. May God [grant] us to live while we live! May we not only live but be all alive. —C. H. Spurgeon
Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.—Jesus
I don’t worry o’er the future,
For I know what Jesus said;
And today I’ll walk beside Him,
For He knows what lies ahead.
Many things about tomorrow,
I don’t seem to understand,
But I know who holds tomorrow,
And I know who holds my hand! —Ira Stanphill
