Tonight, I am tired. My heart is heavy. I am plagued with uncertainties. I am doing my best to put my faith squarely where I know that it belongs – in the One who died for me.
Tonight I am not able to write my own thoughts well. So – though it may be a cop-out, I share with you this quote from Steve Jobs. Regardless of the things he may have done poorly, in this I think he was an expert:
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” –Steve Jobs
