Weekly Word

The "Weekly Word Of IMPACT", is a weekly word of encouragement written by Pastor Dale Campfield.

“You Are Old!”

August 14, 2019

I can remember as a child thinking that people who were 40 years of age were old! I thought for sure that the "rapture" would take place well before I would turn 40! At 40, you might as well start preparing for your funeral! Those where my thoughts as a kid. Now, not so much!

My Bride and I celebrated 39 years of marriage two weeks ago. That's almost 40! Are you kidding? I've been married longer than I was single - by far! How did that happen? It happened because (sing it with me) "time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping, into the future." No truer lyrics have ever been written about time; time keeps on slipping into the future, never to retrieve again. Once the time has passed, it's passed forever. Therefore we must make the most of the time that we do have now. We must not allow one moment of our lives slip by without realizing the potential of that particular moment of time and what God desires to do.

Someday, time as we know it will cease to exist. Heaven and earth will pass away. What we do with our time now will determine what our eternal future will look like. The fact is, you're not getting any younger. If you want to make an Eternal IMPACT in your life - spend your time wisely now.

And as you do...You watch... You wait... You'll see!
