Time is Not Guaranteed


Time is not guaranteed, it’s not something that we have a lot of. We always take time for granted, then we look back and think about what we could have had, should have had, what we missed out on, who we hurt, who hurt us, and realize…we wasted time.

But the time that we think we wasted was full of living in this confusing world trying to figure out this complicated thing called life.

Trying to succeed, but who can define what real success is?

How can someone say that another person is not successful?

You don’t have to be rich, or drive a certain kind of car, or have a degree, or any of these things.

These things are material desires of the world, things that make you believe that you are behind, or wrong, or different.

These desires make people think that they are better, or greater than another.

What’s so crazy is…we work hard to have these things…but, when we die…none of it comes with us.


You are a dead body in the ground…all of your worldly possessions are gone, belonging to someone else or packed away in a box…in storage…like you.

The only way to have true success is to be right with God.

Sure, I have goals I want to accomplish, and I’m not perfect, or even deserving, but I know that if all I had was God’s love, and being around people that love me, and people I love, I would be happy.
