The substance of our individual lives

Life is sort of like a vapor that comes from a tea kettle of boiling water, when the tea kettle cools, the vapor disappears.

Our blood when it is warm, is the life of our body, when it runs cold, life is usually gone.

A christian man named John Wesley once said, that our life is like an arrow that is shot from a bow, it ascends into the heavens, until it reaches its highest point, then is descends until it comes to a stop.

I was thinking to myself yesterday about different things, and I had the thought come to me, that everything dies and passes away. (Everything, it doesn't matter what it is)!

I've had this sort of thought before, but it Never had really sunk into my brain before like the way that it did yesterday.
Our lives are so short, time passes by so quickly, not only do we as human beings die, but other things as well, only in different ways, and I'm sure if you think about it you can come up with several examples.

What I'm trying to say is, nothing lasts forever, everything has to end at some point, you and every person that you know or have ever known in your life has to die, and with that being so, i think we should (and I'm sure everyone that's reading this has heard this before) live life to the fullest.

We should make the best of our time that we have from this moment on, while we have it, whether you be a young person or an old one, because one day your life will end, it will be all over, and the time you have right now, will soon all be gone, and something that's even more important than making the best of the time that we have, is making sure we have everything straightened out in our hearts with God, because we don't know when we're going to die, we could be gone in the blink of an eye. For ex. by something like a car accident.

So isn't it important, that we make sure ahead of time rather than wait and it be too late?

I'm ending this post with this question for you to think about, not to be mean in any way at all, it's a question that I've been asked before, so please don't get offended.

I also don't want you to get the impression that I'm trying to force my belief or the decision to get saved on you, what you do is ultimately your choice.

Where will you go when you die, when it's all over, and your life has ended?

Only you know where you stand.
