My plan: to live to 120, Yah willing. That means, if the Lord God of the universe decides to, He can let me live to 120 years old. Sure, I might get cancer this month, or get hit by a car on Saturday night, or . . . who cares? I don’t live my life based on “what if”‘s. That’s how the worldwide insurance industry makes its money, by scaring consumers with “what if?” Don’t buy into it, people. Live your life in Yahweh’s presence, expecting Him to take care of you every step of the way. If you make it to 120, super, if only to 72, well, whatever. At least you did your best.
So, what do I need to do to get there?
