How to Live Life As A Well Being
There are is no such thing as life assurance..
People buy all kind of insurance policies,home, life, health and auto, in case something happens to them. But in life there are no assurance policies to cover those moments in life when things don't go as planned.
Life is full of plans as the Bible says in James 4:13, "Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit."
But as James points out in verses 14-15 there are no gurantees, "Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that."
You do not know when as they say, “You number is up.” So there is a sense that each day must be ready to meet your maker. There must be n you heart some assurance that when you close your eyes here you will open them in Heaven.”
There is however afterlife assurance
The assurance you need to know that new day you will be Heaven with Jesus turn to 2 Timothy. According to Paul in 2 Timothy 1:12 there is one thing we can be assured of, “For this reason I also suffer these things, but I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day..
Paul asserted he was not afraid of what came his way in life. He started out as being the heir apparent to a high position in the Jewish synagogue. He had plans for his life. God had different plans.
The same is true of all believers. We have set a great many plans for our lives until that day God stepped and said, “Do this in my name.” That is the day we received our assurance of what is to come me. We may have our plans but our assurance is in knowing when this life is over we are going to stand in Heaven with God..
A Short Poem About Life
My life may not be—
--filled with bliss
--a wonderful delight
--times I relish
--moments of glee
But I know if—
--I focus on happiness
--look for the joy
--be of good cheer
--have a little gladness
I will be a well-being
