a vapor in the wind

Time is too short.

If you steal something from someone, you take it away from them without their permission and without intending to return it.          -- Google definition.

What if your life was stolen from you.  It could be ended by an unexpected natural disaster - an earthquake, tsunami, landslide - or in a car accident because someone is speeding out of control and their breaks don't work... or while taking a jog some freak kidnaps you (but we'll spare the details). Or perhaps death will come more slowly... an addiction or a disease.

or you live a "long" and "happy" life and drift away, warm and cozy while dreaming in your bed.


but.....what if there was another way....

Life needn't be stolen from you.

That is the answer. The Answer of answers.

Give your life away, that you may have Life forever lasting.

Your Life cannot be taken away from you if you have given it away already.

All those things and more break my heart. They make me cry. And the only consolation I have is Christ. I don't know how anyone finds comfort if they don't have Him. Its no wonder that depression is so rampant. For the joy of the Lord is my strength. There is no hope without He who gives Life for those who will lose it.

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

John 10:10
