"We Live Our Lives By The Sands Of The Hour Glass Of Life"

The hour glass of life, continously falls through out our life.
The hour glass of life, continously falls through out our life.

"We Live Our Lives By The Sands Of The Hour Glass Of Life"

God the father created us and gives us life with each breath we breathe. The day that we are born the sands of the hour glass, starts to fall, grain by grain. As we grow in life, the grains of sand continue to fall. God blesses us with each grain of sand that falls, by blessing us each second,each minute, each hour, each day,each year. God has given us a new life to live and grow. We are born by his grace but as we get older, things change in our life. If you don't have godly parent to teach us and nurture us in the glorious word of God. We end up in another world. A world of wickedness, pain and sometimes cruelty. The blessed thing about having godly parent is they teach you about Jesus and the love of God. If we should stray, we will always find our way back to God. At twelve years old, I was taught that our sins are on us and no longer on the parent. We learn to study, search and seek out Gods word to show ourselves approve. Once we go through this process and get to know God as our personal Saviour, we then turn our lives over to him. By then, the sands of the hour glass has fallen to almost to the half way point.

The good thing about sincerely knowing who God is, he gives us a new birth in Jesus Christ. By receiving Jesus and being baptised in the name of Jesus. As the sands continuously falls, we must live our lives like there's no tomorrow because for some us, there isn't.The time on the hour glass of life is running out and one day it will be our time to leave this world. We'll wait for Jesus in the next world. Then we can have a happy reunion with the son of God. That's why we have to live our lives godly to the best of our ability. While we love our neighbor and bless our enemies, forgiving everyone hat's sinning against us. None of us know what time the hour glass of life is set on life's journey. When the last grains of sands finally falls, we will have become one with Jesus and cement our relationship with God forever. There want be anymore battles to fight, no more wars to win, nor souls to save or tears to shed, nor deaths to die. When the grains of sands stop falling in our lives, we will all rejoice in his name and in his glories arms.

      Wonderful hub Benny. How true, our lives are as grains of sand passing day by day and like a clock. No-one knows at what hour it may stop. Great advice, to live everyday like it is your last. If more people lived in this way, what a different world this would be.

      Love and Hugs

      If we would live as though this may be our last day and the Lord is watching the church would look much differently than it does. Thanks for this!
