Borrowed time.

Hebrews 9:27 says, ' And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment,

There is little we can do about this. All Christians should welcome that day but we still should be thankful for each day we are above ground. Often I think of all the times I should have died and didn't. I could have died when I was a teen and we were out joyriding and nearly went off a bridge on to a track many feet below onto a rail road track. But I didn't. The car was tettering on the edge when my friends and I crawled out, grateful that we were not killed.

While in Kansas City some men broke into my apt and ransacked it, looking for someone who wsa not there. It was frigtening and they could have killed me but they didn't. I was thankful they left me quivering in my bed, shaken, frightened but alive. In 1974 I nearly died from the result of an ectopic pregnancy. I thanked God for sparing me. In 1980 I could have been killed in a car accident but once again, He spared me. I was thankful. I noticed I was thanful for all of the times I had been spared and often forgot to thank Him on a daily basis for allowing me to live each day.

From the moment we are born we are living on borrowed time. Only God knows when the time of our existance is up and we should live each day like it is our last and get down and thank God each night for allowing us to live each day. Make it a habit to thank God for all the little things in your life as well as the right to live on this earth another day praising hem when you can. You may not get a chance to do it again.


  1. What a lovely post....words to ponder for sure. You have lived a full life and sometimes were on the edge of it, I am glad God allowed you time just so that I got to know you as I think you are wonderful woman with a strong faith. You handle your burdens so gracefully and always give thanks for your blessings. You are in a good place my dear, I am so blessed to have you as a blog friend......:-) Hugs

  2. Oh, Bernie, you made my day! It has been one of those days where I needed to hear some good things for a change. Thank you. You are one of those special angels that have been sent my way when I needed one.
