24 Hours


If you had only 24 hours left to live, how would you spend it?
With family and friends? Getting back at a someone who did you wrong?
Would you spend it in prayer, asking for forgiveness, righting all wrongs?
Would you weep, would you mourn? Demand answers? Kick and scream or embrace
it with open arms? Are you ready to leave this world and travel the unknown?
Are you sure of where you will end up when our Savior returns? How would you
spend your last 24 hours?

yeah i agree..i would just make every minute counts..maybe even let some folks know that i forgive them.

I would definitely spend the majority of that time on my knees in repentance and asking for forgiveness. I am not afraid to die but I would like to avoid extreme heat conditions. You feel me.

Nice pic of you and your baby.

That is a great question and the answer to it carries even more of a weight. However you answer tells alot about you. Personally I would split up that 24 hours and in it I would ask God for forgiveness for my wrongs, I would forgive the ones who wronged me, I would take every minute for granted, and most of all I would ask myself why havent I been living this way my entire life. I attempt to make the most of my time on this planet and work at achieving my goals. I need to start to spend time with the ones that I love. This is a pretty hard thing to accomplish because I am in fostercare, but God's will be done, and hopefully his will would be to allow me to see my mom, which is also what I've been fighting for in court, in meetings, and in my daily life. The thing that has been keeping me going is the fact that I need to sit back and let God handle everything. Now I don't fight the system, I roll with the punches, and soon enough I will be able to see my mom.

You are a very wise and smart young lady. You are strong and seems to be handling this fairly well. I know it gets hard but stick in there and like you said..let Him fight for you. God isn't done with you yet and what He has for you is just for you. go to www.potentpraise.blogspot.com for encouragement whenever you'd like..you can submit writings too if it helps you to release. I'll email you.
