Sitting in your backyard, watching your children play as you slowly let the breeze set your swing in motion while sitting on your back patio swing, have you ever pondered what life will be like in twenty years?
I know that there will be a lot of changes, good and bad. Hopefully our government will have changed for the betterment of the United States. Thinking of politics I can only worry what the future will hold. I know that only God knows our future and I know His word says that times of great tribulation are coming and with each passing day His hand will be further removed from our world. I can only place my trust in Him that our future will be safe and in His control.
On the other hand I dream of the future most when I lay my eyes on my children. They have so much life ahead of them. How will they handle growing up? How will their little personalities develop. Sweet, kind, servant hearted, God loving and God fearing, I pray.
Will they make wise choices? Will they handle rejection and failure with humility? What will be their God given tallents? Who will be their first love? What will they long to be? Who will they marry? Will they have children? Will they grow old and love all the days of their lives?
Only the future will unveil the answers to my questions. Twenty years seems so long but will go by at the flash of a light. Time will tell if we will be able to vaction on the moon or drive fuel free cars. The advancements in medicine I pray will have relief for those suffering with cancer if not a cure, only time will tell. All I can say is I pray the Lord will allow me the privelgge see the next twenty years unfold.
