“Hell begins on the day when God grants us a clear vision of all that we might have achieved, of all the gifts which we have wasted, of all that we might have done which we did not do.“- Gian-Carlo Menoi
This quote stops me. It forces me to look, to really search for who I am and what I’m supposed to be doing. When I can say “I’ve done my best,” I can say I’m done. Until then, I must continue to do as Paul the Apostle when he says:
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. 27No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.
I don’t want to waste a sunrise.
