While it’s still today

I will be thankful for so many blessings and gifts…a sound mind, healthy body, home, family, friends, fulfilling work, and these are just a few.

I will steward these things, worshipping God in how I care for them, for His glory.

I will open my hands with childlike trust, exposing all I hold dear, knowing that He may choose to remove anything for purposes known only in His unfathomable love, and for my ultimate good.

I will remember the Cross and the price He paid for my freedom and redemption.

I will raise the banner of Christ, my strength and shield, in every battle that I face, for I do not fight alone.

I will consider that the only legacy worth leaving for generations after me, is to have followed Christ.

I will live today as my last in this life, knowing that tomorrow is not promised. If I wake to the sunrise, I will start again from the top of this list.

About the Author


Hey, welcome to goodbye2hello! My name's Joseph, and I'm the head staff writer. I'm also a father, brother and son, and I'm learning to follow Jesus. Yes, that's right, learning! The number one thing I would tell you is that the journey with Jesus is all about your heart and learning to surrender it more to Him each day. Simple as that, but also as difficult as that! I hope the pages here will shed some light for you on building your foundation with Jesus, and then what it looks like through the lives and experiences of the first followers, throughout the New Testament, to walk daily with Him. We are on this journey together, you and I.
