Okay well if you can tell I am talking about the failed prediction of last week, by the way most Christians that I know/follow don’t believe in that theory at all in fact here is my Leader of my church response to May 21st, 2011. ( Borrowed the title from a song done by many artists but I know it from Great Big Sea).
“What a pile of rubbish! Judgment and the end of the world May 21. What hog-wash! Read Matthew 24. People who are not saved or maybe saved, but don’t know their Bibles spread trollop like this and make us look foolish. My advice: live like He would come at any moment . Oh yeh! And if you believe this rubbish please rush over to my house and give me your money before you go :).” Hazel Hill
So although we don’t know when it will occur with this idea coming up it definitely makes us more conscious of the live we have lived thus far and what changes if any need to be done in the upcoming years to come.
I mainly reflected on how I have treated people. Have I been following the commandments and decrees set before me am I walking in Love towards those that have hurt me. I feel that I have some work to do in this area but that I am doing it to the best of my knowledge right now.
Also being reflective it just makes you think what would you do if you knew the time and point at when you would go to be with God. Would you live your life differently then how you are now, what would you say. I was thinking about this before from an episode of How I met your Mother called Bad News where someone close them dies and they reflect on their “Last Words”.
What would your last words be? Mine have always been “I love You”. My family always makes it a point to say that often sometimes it’s several times a day. I hear it many times from my mom she says it to me when I go out the door, if I talk on the phone to her when I get home and always before I/she go to bed. Why because you just never know when the last time will be and you should take every opportunity to let someone know how you feel just in case it’s the last. So no matter what is going on in our lives or how we feel about each other we always end our conversations with love.
My dad started this, okay it’s always been there but it really became a rule when my ma-mere passed away. Long story short my dad has been involved in a feud with his sisters for pretty much most of his adult life since his father passed away and they weren’t on speaking terms when my ma-mere got sick. Instead of honouring her wishes of seeing my father they decided that he didn’t deserve to be there and although she lived for 2 weeks in intensive care my father didn’t get to say good bye to her or that he loved her, so now he makes it a point and we all do to say how we feel, even if we are not really feeling like it at the time.
Anyways this week teaches us that we don’t know when our time is up and no matter what your beliefs are you can’t get this life back. Once this life is over, it’s over so what do you want your life to be about, what’s your legacy for this world.
I am beginning to realize that I have wasted a lot of my life on useless things and realize that it’s not all about me and so my next part of my life is going to be less about me and more about others.
I have a real drive for issues involving poverty, I just don’t feel like it should be an issue in this day and time that people should not be living in the conditions that they do when there are so many riches in this world. So I want to devote more time to that once I am back in a position that I can do more.
Also being a Christian I want to do more to share my faith because I believe and you might not share this belief that there is one God and when we die if were saved we go to be with Him and if not well you go somewhere else and I want people to know this more. So I have decided to be more open with my faith and the first step is me blogging about it. I have begun to show my faith on Facebook and now I will be starting at least once a week or so talking about issues of faith with my readers.
The other thing that I have decided I want to do is be more open and less afraid so that means going public, first step to this is posting my updates on Facebook and showing my face. There are two reasons for this one because I may help people in my circle if I would be less afraid of what they think and two because in order for me to be successful in some of my ideas for my life I need to be seen and have an identity online. So right now I am still blogging for me but more and more people are reading it and I think it’s good if they know and can see who they are reading about. Who knows where it can lead. This is my ministry and I intend on using it to all of it’s abilities.
Okay so that’s my view on the end of the world.. It didn’t happen so we can go on living, hopefully more conscious of how we are living it and what we want our life to be about.
Thank you and God Bless
