I Got It!

Life is short.

This is a message I have been receiving regularly from God for the last 3 years.

My son, David Glasser, was a Phoenix Police Officer who was killed in the line of duty 3 years ago.  I have learned several life-changing lessons from this tragedy and one of the main lessons I have learned is just how short life is.  And God keeps reminding me so I think it’s a message I’m supposed to regularly share with you, too.

In the big picture, I am only on this earth for the length of a single breath and then I will be gone.

God has determined my final day on earth – and it could be today.  He reminded me again of this truth this morning as I read David’s Psalm 39 –

“LORD, remind me how brief my time on earth will be.  Remind me that my days are numbered – how fleeting my life is.”

I got the message, God!  I am ready if today is that day.  I’m also ready to stay here to complete my purpose on earth if that’s what you want.

My life on earth is but a shadow – here and then quickly gone.  I have no time for bitterness or holding grudges.  There is no time for hatred or worry.

My brief time here on earth needs to be about loving God and loving others.  God makes that very clear in his Word.

And never forget – life is short!

Please help me make good use of the time I have left here, Abba Father.
