Are You Ready?

When tragedy comes into your life how do you react?

As a person who battles depression, I find that simply hearing about death and tragedy can send me further into a depressed state.   However, if we set aside the effects that tragedies and horrific events may have on a person fighting depression, death and tragedy are both subjects many of us try to avoid.

Armed with this knowledge, I want to focus on tragedy for a moment.   Take a recent incident involving a bus and a semi-truck traveling in opposite directions on a major interstate highway.  The north bound bus was carrying high school students and three adults.  The semi truck crossed the median and collided head-on with the tour bus full of kids.  The crash ended in a fireball with at least ten dead human beings.

Do you imagine these kids and adults expected their lives to end so soon?  I encourage you to read about this tragedy if you haven’t already and then consider your own life.

What is your life worth? Are you ready to meet God?  Do you know where you are going after you die?  Whether you know the answers to these questions or not, feel free to visit my website www.areyougood.us anytime!

 

” It is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.”  Hebrews 9:27

“He who believes in the Son [Jesus] has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”  John 3:36
