How long is forever?

It is hard to remember some days that this life is very short. Then other days it comes home to me very hard. Even living to 100 or so is short. It will pass away. All of its desires will pass away. Here is the good news of Jesus. I have billions and billions of years to live. It is a glorious life.

May I focus on doing the will of God. I will live billions and billions of years in Him with that focus. His goal for me is all that is important.

The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:17

    So easy to forget this when we are mired down in the day to day stuff but thanks for the reminder. I lost a good friend suddenly and unexpectedly three weeks ago and this lesson was brought home in a big way. I blogged about it and the one thing God impressed upon me was “it’s okay to live as if you will never die as long as you die knowing you will forever live”.
