Quickly Fading

ni Dara Obmega

May tanong aq. Anung ginagwa mu ngaun?
Madalas ito ang tinatanong ng mga kabataan kapag may katext sila. At syempre, sasagot naman si katext at sasabihing, “e2, nano2od ng tv habang nkahiga sa sofa”, tapos with a smile pa .

Ang tanong, ano nga bang ginagawa mo ngayon, kapatid, bago mo basahin ang sulating ito? At ano kaya ang gagawin mo pagkatapos mo itong basahin? We’ll see.

Madaming kabataan ang nalilimutan kung gaano kahalaga at kaikli ang buhay. Minsan nga napapagtanto nalang ito kapag matanda na, kung kailan halos mahina na at nakalatay nalang sa kama.

I tell you, life is really short. Sabi nga sa kanta ng Casting Crowns na Who Am I, “I am a flower quickly fading, here today and gone tomorrow…” Maaaring yang buhay na meron ka sa mundong ito ay mawala sa isang iglap lang. Hindi naman sa nananakot ako, pero dadating talaga yan. That’s why Moses prayed to God in Psalm 90:12, “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Dahil kapag alam natin kung gaano kaikli ang buhay, hindi natin ito sasayangin sa mga walang kwentang bagay tulad ng pagka-adik sa computer, pagsuway sa magulang, pagsisira sa katawan, pagiging tamad, pagpasok sa maling relasyon, atbp. But we will cherish every moment with our family and with every God-given people around us in love. We will make wise decisions and give our 100% in everything we do, especially for our Creator. Laging on-the-go for Him!

Kaya nga, habang malakas ka pa at kaya pang gawin ang maraming bagay, remember Who made you – the Living God. Honor Him while you are still young. (Ecclesiastes 12:1). He has a purpose for you, so don’t waste your life!

Huwag ding kalimutang tumawa at ngumiti. May iba na araw-araw nalang nakasimangot at galit, kaya naman ang mga tao ay takot lumapit. Life’s too short to be grumpy, so enjoy life, love and be happy!

And the most important of all, LOVE the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind and your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:37). Promise, wala kang pagsisisihan. Ang saya-saya kaya kapag love is in the air. As Henry Drummond said, “You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done in the spirit of love.” So the secret is “Do everything in love” (1 Cor. 16:14).
