What If I Died Tomorrow? What Would My Legacy Be?

Have I Spent My Time Wisely?

What If I Died Tomorrow? What Would My Legacy Be?
What If I Died Tomorrow? What Would My Legacy Be?

What if I  died tomorrow? Not the most fun thought, but yet this is the question that’s been on my mind a lot lately.

Not because I think I’m going to, or because I’m worried that it could happen, but because I want to make sure I’ve done my best with the time I’ve been given.  I want to make sure I’m not wasting time on things that won’t matter.

What if I died tomorrow?

Would my kids be okay?

Did their dad and I lay the foundation that was needed, and speak the truth in them in order to withstand the pain?

Will they see me as an example of God’s love or a hypocrite?

Do they know just how much I love them?

Will they know the things they need in order to thrive as adults?  But even more, would the truth of Jesus be engrained in them?

What if I died tomorrow?

Do my parents know I love them?

Would they be proud of who I am?

What would my friends say? That I was a good friend?

Would there be broken relationships forever left unsettled?

What if I died tomorrow?

Would my husband know how much he meant to me, and the magnitude of my love for him?

Does he know how much I appreciate all that he does for our family?

Would he know how thankful I am that God gave him to me?

What if I died tomorrow?

Would God say that I showed kindness and love to others?

Would God say that I chose forgiveness over resentment?

What if I died tomorrow?

Would anything that God asked me to do be left undone?

Did I spend the time that He gave me doing what He asked of me?

What if I died tomorrow?

Would the world be any different than it was before?

We know that earthly things will pass away (see 1 John 2:17). But God promises us that when we devote ourselves to His work, it will not be in vain (see 1 Corinthians 15:58).

Yes, these thoughts have been lingering.

We don’t know when this day will be our last. So I will keep examining my life. I will find the answers to the questions.

And if I don’t like the answers to some of these questions, I can make a change.

Because God has given me today, and I am so very thankful.
