Our Fading Shadow

Lord, what is man, that You look after him? Or a son of man, that You think of him? Man is like the breath; His days are like a passing shadow. – Psalms 144:3-4

Have you ever wondered how much longer you have, if the life you have remaining will be short? If you want a “bite of potential reality,” you can check out www.deathclock.com! Truth is that life is short for all of us when compared to an eternity with the Savior.

If God has called you into His service (to be clear, if you are a believer, then you have been called), you should have arrived at a sense of urgency about your mission. While, as Christ-followers, we understand that we are already living an eternal life, the earthly portion of that will one day end. Yet, there are many people around the world who have never heard the name of Jesus and never had the opportunity to trust Him (as we have). Some of these people live within easy driving (or even walking) distance of where we live!

We all, by our lives, cast a shadow that ever lengthens as our “day” nears its end. At the peak of its zenith, the shadow cast by a person’s life begins to fade. As the Lord moves us out of our comfortable existence into a deeper partnership with Him, may we all learn to fill our days (and our shadows) with His purposes for the great manifestation of His glory.

No matter what you do, or how you do it, you leave a little footprint, and that’s your legacy. – Jan Brewer
