What if tomorrow doesn’t come.?
A famous song by Garth Brooks speaks of the thought if tomorrow never comes. He adds in his song, “Will she know how much I loved her. Did I try in everyway to show her everyday she’s my the only one…”
Take a deep breath with me. Take the breath in deep and slowly release it. Then ponder for a few moments if tomorrow never comes.
Did you tell your spouse, children, grandparents, siblings, and friends that you love them? Did you ask for forgiveness of something wrong you may have done to another person or loved one? Are you holding onto bitterness for a wrong done to you?
The bible says not to let your anger go on past sunset. Think about forgiveness and forgiving someone who wronged you. It may be tough, I know I am having difficulty with it myself with a select few. But if God forgives us, all of us, if we ask Him and repent. We are forgiven through the blood of the Lamb in Jesus Christ. Then we should seek to forgive others, and hopefully others to forgive us.
We are not promised another day, even fellow believers. We don’t know for certain tomorrow will come. We or our loved ones could pass away over any serious illness or injury. Or a natural disaster like tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes, mud slides, and forest fires.
Years ago my 8 yr old nephew fell out of the barn and landed on his head. He suffered a severe brain injury, his brain swole, and he never came out of a comma. The doctors certified him as “brain dead.” Only the machines were keeping him alive. This was my first experience with a death of someone I was close to. He was an energetic hyperactive kid that managed to get anyone to laugh. Unfortunately my last words to him was a scolding for accidentally burning a portion of our camping tent. It was the last time I spoke to him. I was fifteen and I loved this little guy. However I never got a chance to tell him. I never got a chance to teach him many good things that are in this life. I never got to tell him about God and Jesus Christ. His parents made the tough decision to remove life support and have his organs donated. The organs saved two other lives.
Remember tomorrow may not come. You may not get that chance to tell a family member, spouse, or friend that you love them. You may not get the chance to tell them about the saving grace in Jesus Christ. If you do not know God, or accepted the free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, what are you waiting for?
If tomorrow never comes will your loved ones, and friends know how much you care, and how much you love them? Does God know you love Him?
