{Day 16} Spiritual Prepping: Temporary

Today’s verse aligns with the 31 Day Five Minute Free Write prompt: Temporary.

To me there is no better verse that reinforces the fact everything is temporary in life.

I probably would have gotten in trouble for not using this verse in this series. It is the one that was recited by former pastor and is recited by my current pastor after reading the sermon scripture.

Most importantly it reminds us that everything and everyone in this world is temporary.

The following are just a few things that will come to an end and be nothing more than an antique in the distant memory of someone’s mind:

  • The Declaration of Independence
  • The United States Constitution
  • The Bill of Rights
  • The Amendments to the Constitution
  • The various denominations – Reformed Church in America, Presbyterian, The Catholic Church, Baptist, Pentecostal etc…
  • Books written by your favorite Christian leaders – Billy Graham, Paul David Tripp, Elisabeth Elliot etc…

Yes, all of these things and so much more, will one day be Gone With The Wind as they are not God’s word.

Now it might be one hundred, five hundred or one thousands days, months or years from now when they cease to exist. Even when they do, God will still exist as He is not temporary. He never has been and never will be.

So whatever life throws your way, remember life is temporary and a new, deeper, more fulfilling life awaits us.
