Dec 09 – Before I Die … I want to …

The chalkboard on the side of buildings reads “Before I die, I want to…” those passing by can share their dreams. The idea originated in New Orleans, when Candy Chang needed clarification in her own life and felt others may too. The project has now spread worldwide. Anything that causes us to stop and think of the future is a good thing. Rollo May says, “It is ironic that humans run faster when they have lost their way.” The Bible, sums it up in Psalm 46, “Be still and know that I am God…” It’s a good idea to say from the heart, “Before I die, I want to establish goals.”-. But more importantly, we should all be saying, “before I die, I want to be prepared for the next life.” Jesus made it clear how this can happen when He said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
