An Old Man's Musings  

Questions to ponder: Am I afraid? Are you afraid? Should we be afraid? And if so, what should we be afraid of? Should we fear failure, or success, or love, or pain, or sorrow, or sickness, of poverty, or maybe just living or dying?  

I admit it, I have been afraid of something all my life. When I was but a small child, it was the monster under the bed or in the closet. As I got older, it was failing the test at school. As a teenager, I was afraid of not fitting in and being liked by others. As I graduated high school, I was terrified of the future and of being on my own. In college, well, I guess I went back to being afraid I would fail my tests and get kicked out. When I found my true love, My Betty, I was afraid that she would someday get bored with me and leave me all alone. After we married, I felt better about her not leaving, and instead became afraid of how was I going to provide for her and keep her happy. As Age crept up on me, I became afraid that my health would fail. When I deployed, I was afraid I would die…. When my beloved wife Betty became sick, and it was apparent that her time was near, I was afraid that she would leave me all alone here on earth. I guess you could say that I have been afraid of something all my life… but in all that time, I never feared God. Everything that I was afraid of was of this earth and life….instead of worrying about those transitory things, I should have feared for my eternal soul and God. Either, I had never been close enough to God or I had drifted away from God, but if I had truly known God as I do now, I would know to trust in God and would never had to waste all that precious time in a life of needless fear. My life here on earth is but a snap of the fingers when compared to my spiritual life in eternity, yet I foolishly fear for what I have now. I need to fear only God for He is the one that will decide mine and each of our fates when He sits in judgement of each of our lives… Why care about passing a test, or making enough money, or having enough friends, when it is the very existence of my soul at risk… Just an Old Man's Musings....

We all know where this came from, and it is not me, but GOD, so use what you need, and then pray and thank our GOD. Do not ever thank me, as I am only a channel for our Lord.
