I recently took a quiz that is designed to tell how long you will live. Obviously, no one knows how long that will be except God, but the test asked pointed, specific, health questions that made statistical analysis leading to a projected age. One by one I answered the questions which ranged from present health issues, to how long my parents lived, to weight (kinda personal) to blood pressure, to smoking (never smoked or drank), to my driving record.

All of these questions led to my projected life span being 88 years. That is 28 years from now. To be honest, I had already asked the Lord to give me 85 healthy, purposeful years so this test was actually good news to me. I may have 3 more years than I asked God to give me.

Who knows how long any of us have to live? Life changes so quickly. The good news is that we don’t have to live with fear, apprehension, or uncertainty, Our time is in God’s hands, and when we give our lives to Him then He takes all things and works them for our good. That includes the amount of time we live in this life.

Here is the point. Make every day count. Live right! Don’t waste a day. Don’t live with regrets, hard feelings, unforgiveness, or ill. LIfe is too short and there is too much to enjoy. Remember, this is the day the Lord has made. Rejoice and be glad.

How long do you plan on living? What is the projection? Double click on the first sentence of this paragraph and check it out.

Live today and love. Let God’s love release new faith and energy for life. God has good things in store for you. Just trust Him and follow after His ways.

Here is the best news. The truth is that we are going to live forever! Did you get that? I said you are going to live forever. If we believe in Jesus and have accepted Him as our Saviour then there is a better world coming. This world leads to a far greater, more wonderful, amazing life in heaven. If I live 88 years then I will have just begun to live.

  1. Interesting post. I too have asked God for 85 years and my test came back 86. Of course I know that God has a plan and He hasn't shared it all with me.

    Many Blessings to you and Wanda. Still look for your blog weekly.
