What if I told you, that you were going to die soon?

From a faithful aspect to a connection with God do you believe that through faith we can have such a strong connection between someone else that we feel their pain and emotions? Sometimes life throws curves at us and even though we feel alone we aren't. God is always with us but more than that others are with us as well. Just recently I have been going through a very challenging time of confusion, frustration, and lost hope. All along I felt like I could overcome all of it, but I knew it would be a challenge. The power of prayer is more powerful than I can even know. I saw God work through me to help someone else when in actuality I was the one needing his guidance.

A few individuals prayed for me and that made a world of difference but I didn't realize it until after everything had happened. I didn't realize the effectiveness of prayer. Why our are lives being clustered into confusion, and busyness that we can't take fifteen minutes out of our day to pray for someone else? Why is it that most individuals be it Christians, or anyone in the United States choose to not regularly read the bible? Why is it that we plan for our future? "Well we plan for our future to have a life for ourselves and provide for our families." My next question then is if your family is so important to you would you save there lives if you could? If you answered yes to that then read on, if you answered no then there is still hope. Yes means that you care and you want to save someones temporary life, but what if you care more than just protecting them for a few days or years? What if you had the opportunity to give someone ETERNAL LIFE?

To get Eternal life doesn't mean you have to act like a prep, go to church every Sunday, and pray breakfast lunch and dinner. NO it simply means doing whats right, believing in God, and accepting Jesus Christ as your personal savior. In fact the more you learn about christianity, the more you learn that God actually wants us to be Warriors or Beauties. If you think of an angel you may think of something with wings that is beautiful and comes to save your life. When in actuality when angels were seen first hand from the bible, whoever saw one was terrified. They feared because these angels were HUGE, they were sent by God to fight battles, and were WARRIORS. The angels would have to tell them not to fear, and that God sends them to tell that person a message.

If thats not enough evidence then look at Jesus. He flipped tables and raised his voice! He didn't walk in and say now guys come on please don't use the church money in a bad way. Hey you probably shouldn't do that. NOPE he went and flipped tables. Now you may or may not know this but Jesus was an absolutely compassionate person, loving, caring, and sacrificing everything for everyone.

What if someone came up to you today and told you that you had 3 months to live? Would you come back to this post and ask about eternal life? Maybe or maybe you would go to a church out of curiosity. Maybe you already know what is going to happen to you when you leave this temporary life... maybe not. Well let me just tell you one thing if you take 15-30 minutes out of your day to devote to God, your life will truly be different. Maybe you want to spend the time praying, maybe you want to spend the time reading your bible, maybe you just want to sit and collect your thoughts about God. You have 1440 minutes in a day I don't think a few of those are going to kill you to be spent on a greater purpose.

I bet an average American watches 4 hours of television a day. With most of the time being commercials, but most Americans wont save there own life. It just astonishes me the way that society feels is normal, and just. I am not forcing you to do anything I am just letting you know that you have a choice, and this choice is BIG so think hard on your decision.

What if I told you, that you were going to do soon?
