We are not promised a long life on earth. Many will die before old age from a variety of sicknesses, diseases, and injuries. We never know when one day could be our last.
We need to appreciate every moment. We can't wait for tomorrow, but we need to be wise about how we use our time today.
We need to rejoice in each day we are given because it is a blessing from God.
We can't let fear rule our lives.
We can't focus on the negative.
We need to know that God is in control.
We need to know that this world is only temporary - both the good and the bad.
We need to know that good things are still ahead for those who love God. This world is not the end of life, but heaven will be even better.
But until we get to heaven, we need to make the most of this life. We need to be bold and brave in each moment we are given. We need to love others. We need to appreciate each day.
Don't wait for tomorrow, but know that today may be all that you have left on earth. Love those around you, be kind, and appreciate each moment.
