Judson's Legacy

One Life


Only one life, ‘twill soon be past, only those things done for Christ will last.
                                                    —Author unknown

I’ve gone through life taking things as they come.  I’ve been known to let things happen rather than make things happen.  I’ve spent a good deal of my life waiting-for the right time and circumstances.

At the same time, I’ve been ruled by my fears and insecurities.  I’ve been concerned about what people would think.  I’ve managed my risks.  I’ve doubted myself and questioned my ability to do things.

Recently, something has changed.

I’m still very deliberate.  I still feel those doubts and fears.  But today, I’m unwilling to be slowed by those things.

What changed?  I’m not entirely sure.  But I think my son has a lot to do with it.

I can’t help but think of where he is-in Heaven, with Christ.  More than anything now, I want to live for Heaven’s Kingdom and Heaven’s King.  And when I see my son again, I want to hear my Savior say, “Well done!”
