Endless Time...

Where does Time begin?
Who can do the calculation?
Is it 001 B.C?
Or was time before that?

Where does Time end?
Who can do the calculation?
How many years after Christ?
Or how many years after the anti-Christ?

There is only One who knows...
For He was before Time
And He will be after Time
He created Time
And He put eternity in our hearts...

"He has made everything beautiful in its time. And He has also put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to the end." Ecclesiastes 3:11.

I lost someone very dear a few days ago, he wasn't even in the prime of his youth. He just turned 22 in december of 2007. He would have been 23 this year. It didn't feel right, yet it made me realize that we are not the owners of our lives. You are not responsible for the oxygen you breathe. But God knows. He alone is sovereign. He alone knows where the keys of life and death are, and He has put eternity in our hearts. This is not the end. It cannot be the end. There's something more. This life is vanity, there's so much more to it. Please, I implore you to give your lives to Christ because there's more to life than what you see with your two eyes...

There's something more than time itself, and it's called "eternity."

Jaycee pele. The devil is a liar. I started this year losing 3 cousin to fire, 2 weeks later lost another friend. All in the prime of their youth.

Meditate on:

Psalm 126:5-6 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. Though he goeth on his way weeping, bearing forth the seed; he shall come again with joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

Psalm 34:18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

Isaiah 61:2-3 He has sent me to proclaim That the time has come When the LORD will save his people And defeat their enemies. He has sent me to comfort all who mourn, to give to those who mourn in Zion Joy and gladness instead of grief, A song of praise instead of sorrow. They will be like trees That the LORD himself has planted. They will all do what is right, And God will be praised for what He has done.

@ 1stPet...so sorry abt ur loss too. I'm learning that only God is the true comforter. He'll comfort in a way that no one else can...

@ darkelcee, thanks...can't wait for our "talk"!

@ allied...thank u so much. I'll forward that to a member of his family. wow, I really loved the psalm 38 part. *sigh*

@ Doja, thats so true. No matter how old they are, you just can't imagine that person not being there anymore. My comfort is in knowing that because he was a child of God, He'll be in a better place...where there'll be no more pain, sorrows, or tears. I am happy abt that.

@ Ms Ken...ha ha ha...I sense the mischief in u (yeah, its easy for one mischievious person to sense another)...u know my answer already sef! First God, errrm then significant other, and then...my good ol' Jeremy (lol).

@ Disgodkidd...thank u so much. How r u doing tho?

There would always be more questions than answers in this world. It's sad but God knows best.

I extend my condolences.
Almost everything that happens in our lives is God's plan.
However, some wired things are planned by the devil but God is always by our side to help us sail through such things.
This world is not our home, we should prepare for everlasting life.

chichi said...

so sorry for your loss.
take heart.

things like this make us 'wake-up' as well as grateful to STILL be here.

Jennifer A. said...

@ Freelance, u're welkie...reciprocating the love for stopping by!

@ Jinta...Amen.

@ Lindwee...I love one thing u mentioned, "The world is not our home..." Simply put. A very accurate statement.

@ Chichi...very true. Realizing that life is not in our hands sure does wake us up! I feel like I just washed my face with my brand new 'morning' facial wash that has vitamins and other stuff that wakes u up from sleep. Yup! I really hope this wakes a lot of people out there. We can't keep living our lives like we're the originators of life & death. All power belongs to GOD!!!! Haleluyah!
(hope the RSS settings are working for u now dear).
