Stop and Think...don't brush this aside

Have you ever stopped to wonder
What this life is all about?
Why you're here and where you're going
When your lease on time runs out?
Maybe you've been far too busy
Trying hard to reach your goal

Would you let me ask you kindly
Have you thought about your soul?


You may reach the highest portals
And your dreams may all come true
Wealth and fame may be your portion
And sucess may shine on you.
All your friends may sing your praises,
Not a care on you may roll

What about the great tomorrow
Have you thought about your soul?


Don't forget your days are numbered,
Though you may be riding high.
But, like all of us poor mortals,
Someday you'll just up and die
Your sucess and fame and glory
Won't be worth the bell they toll.

Let me ask you just one question
Have you thought about your soul?


If you've never thought it over
Spend a little time today
There is nothing more important
That will ever come your way
Than the joy of sins forgiven
And to know you've been made whole

In the name of Christ the Saviour
Have you thought about your soul?

Fragrant Grace. Really like that name. To be honest i dont worry about that stuff. I recognize i have been given a great advantage not having to worry about all that.

I dont worry about my life. I know why im here and where im going. I dont seek wealth nor fame. Im only here for thefulness of one purpose. To be Gods Witness. " he shall not break the bending weed nor put out the flickering flame"

Greetings @Bill

It is good you dont need to worry......praise the Lord

This thread is aimed at non-believers, with the prayer that seeds sown will lead to a sinner turning to Christ

Sometimes -- even believers can feel 'lost' in the maize of life. I don't mean loose their salvation. I mean a lot comes at us and we feel almost overwhelmed by all of 'it'. We Do need to guard our emotions / emotional health.

It's good to hear from a nice woman moderator who's really concerned. And we need to realize that there Are lots of people 'out there' who are headed for a Christ-less eternity. To be separated from God for Ever. He is the True Light of this world.

To answer your question, Sue, i dont worry about my soul. God has given me a task to do. And im involved with God all the time. Even the little things, God is involved with.

Im more concerned about reaching out to all God puts in my path. Some i preach or teach. Some encouragement, uplifting. Or random act of kindness. It is whatever the Spirit leads me to.

@Bill -- you're not intruding -- there's a great variety of 'views' expressed around here. It never hurts to 'challenge' others -- Why they are doing whatever it is they Are doing? Is a person doing 'whatever' with only a 'head knowledge' of Bible / salvation? -- sort of a 'good works' kind of activity? or because they are really a born-again believer and doing what they feel led of God to Do. Lots of people are 'believers' -- but not 'born-again' ones.

This is true.

God loves all His children. And he wants all of us to be "Born Again".

What is it mean to be Born Again? It is Jesus living in you. (It is faith that brings us to Jesus, but we must recieve Jesus in our hearts to go to the Father) Jesus says, no one can go to the Father but through me.

I agree with you completely, being born again is Jesus living in you, being "born again" by the spirit, which is Jesus!!

I will leave my summary of what our lives are supposed to be.

1. We were created by God in His very same Image and after His Own Likeness.
2. God gaves us a purpose by telling us to worship Him and serve Him.
3. God wants us to live in the eternity with Him as His very Own sons.
4. God will let us join Him in judging the world and the evil angels!
