hope you are doing well and greatly benefiting from the goodness
Lord. Recently while I was meditating on a verse of scripture, the
spoke to my heart about the number of years that we live on this
that seem like such a long time, yet they are not really long at
compared to eternity. I hope this message will minister and speak
heart concerning how we are living our life and what we are doing
waste the precious time that God has given us.
The Lord has been speaking to my heart on how we are spending the
that He has given us on the earth. Lately when I have seen the
between the years of someone's birth and death, the Holy Spirit
speaking to my heart concerning how short life is no matter how
the person lived on the earth. I don't want to get too technical
but if you think about it I believe you will understand what I am
The size of the dash is the same regardless if the person who died
years old or 10 years old. When the dash is placed between the
death years, it is the same size regardless of the person's age.
I believe the Holy Spirit revealed this simple truth to me because
the dash that symbolizes our life is really insignificant when
to eternity. So often we waste the time that we have on this earth
things that really do not matter. There are so many distractions
days that steal our time. Precious time that we could be spending
prayer, studying God's Word so that we grow in Him and be
that still small voice of His leading.
We need to keep things in perspective and that's why I believe
message is really needed to be heard more these days. Where will
our possessions be a hundred years from now? All the time that we
acquiring worldly goods will not have any meaning or purpose when
in eternity. I believe the Lord is stirring up many hearts to
about the little time that we have on this earth and what we
doing to make every day count for God and His purposes.
The Bible declares in James 4:14 "...For what is your life?
It is even a
vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away."
It does not
matter if you live to be 50, 80, or 120 years old. It will all
too quickly and in the end, we will say, "Where did the years
go, it seems
like only yesterday I was a kid." The Bible says that our
life is just
like a vapor that appears for a short time and then vanishes away.
The point I wanted to make through this message is this; let us
into eternity having regrets about the time that we spent on the
Let the dash that symbolizes your life be filled with the destined
accomplishments that God has placed in your heart to fulfill. It
matter how long you live, as long as you finish the course that
planned for you. Even though every dash (-) is the same size
our birth and death, let us stay determined and focused to fulfill
destiny and accomplish every goal that God has placed in each of
I pray that this message has struck a chord in your heart to be
sensitive concerning your dash (-) and how it will represent the
you lived on this earth. I encourage you to seek the Lord in
let Him be your guide from this time forth to lead each and every
your days that they may be filled pursuing God's purpose and
every area that God has planned for you. (Jeremiah 29:11-13)

moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight

but the things which are not seen are eternal."
Matthew 6:19-21 Jesus says, "Do not lay up for yourselves
