A thought from the book "A Place Called Heaven" by Dr. Robert Jeffress.
Toward the end of the book, Jeffress was telling about his own father who was by all standards quite a successful individual - in his employment; family; traveled the world; upper-middle class; follower of Christ. Yet he was tormented by what he 'hadn't done'.
Several paragraphs later Jeffress penned, "as we prepare our journeys to that 'place called heaven', one of the best resolutions we can make is to rid our lives of any unnecessary regrets. One way to do this is to honestly evaluate each of our lives."
He suggests taking a sheet of paper and divide it into five columns. The headings should include 'God, family, friends, career, and finances'. Under each heading, write two or three goals each of us would like to achieve in life before we die.
Have I done that? No. Will I do it? I don't know. But I already have several thoughts for a heading or two.
"God, help us, help me, to do what you would have me, us do in our, my days ahead. We want to do and be what is pleasing to You. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
