Today the word prompt is …. Finish.
There’s no way to know for sure when it first hit, only that it did. The thought came I had now lived more of my life than what remains before me to be lived. It was as if the clock had thrown down the gauntlet. You know … challenged me.
The desire in me became increasingly greater to live bigger, braver and daringly. For Him.
I want to make the most of my remaining days not for myself but for His glory.
Scripture tells me,
And I am certainÂ that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.
(Philippians 1:6, NLT)
With this assurance in place, I can trust Him to lead me in the very things He has for me to do. Each day, I can place my day in His hands, asking Him to give me the thoughts and words to share; to place people on my heart to call or write or pray for. He places people and opportunities before me, opening and closing doors.
As I have continued to think about finishing, and finishing well, I remember the song which has followed me everywhere for several weeks now. Down in my car, in my kitchen while I cook, this is the song which has been on repeat.
“Finish” reminds me of my Savior Who finished well and completely.
He has the last word over my life.
And His very last words were …..
“It is finished.”
