Meeting Your Other Self

At some point in our lives we will cross the halfway mark of
our personal longevity where we will come to realize our remaining days are
less than those that came before. This is a line whose date and position is known
only by God. Somewhere in our approach
to age 40, give or take a few years, a distant reality begins speaking to
us. We begin to think in longer terms
about our plans, investments and relationships. We think of how we want to finish this life. While processing our end is
good and can help us make plans to finish well, it is limited in its
scope. Planning our life based on the
timeline of a natural lifespan will not produce the best result for how we
choose to live out our remaining days.

What we need to bring into this thought process is another
reality. When the day does come and you experience the end of this life you
will burst into eternity to see another person, the other you who is currently seated
with Christ. You have been in that place since the first day you agreed to receive
new life. This other self is at peace. Without pain, sorrow and disease. No longer worried about controlling the
outcomes of life. Free from dishonor and shame – a person who is forever alive
in the fullest measure.

So, as you look at your halfway mark, either behind or ahead,
there is something you can do with this unstoppable migration of time. You can begin to invest in this life to
become, as much as it is possible, the other you who now sits with Christ at
the right hand of the Father. Bringing Heaven to earth is not just a ministry
assignment. It needs to become a personal of assignment in your life planning
that reminds the current you of the future person who awaits your arrival into
the peace and joy of timeless eternity.  Allow eternity to begin defining your
remaining days. This will be your personal application of the scripture that
says, “on earth as it is in Heaven.”
