General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 

Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.

—Psalm 139:16

Many want to prolong this life as we know it, be it through stem-cell research, cloning, cryonics, or the latest lotion or potion. Medical science is helping us to live longer lives through life-saving operations and drugs to treat certain life-threatening diseases.

Yet while it is true that they can add years to your life, they cannot add life to your years. That is something only God can do.

Should our primary goal be merely to prolong our lives? I am reminded of a statement made by Jim Elliot. He lost his life at an early age preaching the gospel to the Auca tribe. In 1948, Jim wrote these words in his journal: “I seek not a long life but a full one, like You, Lord Jesus.”

Life is not a matter of years. There are some who have lived long lives, but haven’t lived full lives. It is not the years that count, but what we do with those years.

As tragic as it is to see a life that is “cut short,” as we put it, there is a greater tragedy: living a silly, shallow, wasted life.

And is any life really “cut short”? Is not God the One who determines the length of our days? Does not Scripture say, “There is a time to be born and a time to die,” and also “our times are in His hands”?

Job 14:5 says, “You have decided the length of our lives. You know how many months we will live, and we are not given a minute longer” (NLT).

Today, let’s seek not to live long lives, but full ones.

It is vitally important that we all take the time to like and share articles regardless of what site you are on. Conservative sites (like this one) cannot count on traffic from Facebook etc. any more. Subscribing is also important; this bypasses the censorship. The more that we can get the word out the better – and in order to continue bringing you content like this – we ALL need traffic in order to survive.
