A Note From
Things that we most likely will never use again, yet we have a hard time giving those “beloved” items up.
Often it’s because of memories and then of course the slim chance that you just might need that particular item again.
My attic is actually pretty organized and from time to time I do find that I did need something I’ve been holding on to. But, every time I go up there I think of eternity.
The Bible says in 1 Timothy 6:7
“For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.”
I find myself scanning the attic, focusing on different items that bring me to a particular time of my life.
A project, a purchase (a re-purchase)
Life is short.
There is a quote that I had hanging on my wall when I was a young boy. I’m sure my mom put it there for me to remember what this life is all about.
“One life t'will soon be past but only what’s done for Christ will last.”
C. T. Studd (the great evangelist)
Years later, I would write a song using that very phrase.
I’m not quite sure if my heavenly home will have an attic, but if it does, I hope it is filled with pictures, “playbacks” and video clips of a life that pursued eternal significance.
Oh The attic!
“God, please let my eternal attic fill me with joy”
