Eternal Hope

Better to live for today and not worry about tomorrow. Better to live in the moment than dwell in the past. Better still to live with the assured hope of eternity beyond these earthly shores

Eternal Hope #A generation goes, and a generation comes, but the earth remains forever.” ‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭1:4‬ ‭ESV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬ http://bible.us/59/ecc.1.4.esv I recently read a sobering thought “none of us are going to be around in 100 years time." Whatever we have done with our time on earth will be over, we will have left our mark on society, however small that might be. This reminds me that in the greater scheme of things, the things that I toil with, get irritated by and frustrate me will be of no consequence. Similarly the things that delight me and bring me joy. While being on holiday I’ve seen the sea roll in twice a day, restoring the beach to it’s natural beauty, the endeavours of the previous hours have been erased and a new landscape is set. The world is going to continue beyond my earthly existence. If I could capture a moment what would it be? A souvenir postcard of my time on earth. Better to live for today and not worry about tomorrow. Better to live in the moment than dwell in the past. Better still to live with the assured hope of eternity beyond these earthly shores
