I was reading in James 4 and verse 14 spoke to me and made me misty eyed.
Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. James 4:14
It’s true. We are but a “mist”. In other words, life is short. We’re here and then we’re gone. I could see how, at first glance, this verse might be a bit depressing. But for me it’s motivating.
It’s a reminder not to waste the days we’ve been given because each one is a gift.
It’s a reminder to invest my life in the things that matter the most.
It’s a reminder to make this one and only life count.
Life is short. Time is precious.
Your life is but a mist.
It’s time to become misty eyed.
