God said in Psalm 139:16, that all the days of your life were recorded in God's book before you were born.
Hence, you have no real say over the length of your days.
You do however have say over the quality of your life.
You can choose to obey God and love Him with your total person, and love your neighbor as yourself (Mark 12:28-31).
You can choose to live the Holy Spirit controlled life and display the fruit of the Spirit (Eph. 5:18; Gal. 5:22-26).
You can choose full and meaningful life (John 10:10).
Then when your day to depart this life comes you can transition with total confidence (II Tim. 4:6-8).
- You are ready to leave here.
- You fought the good fight in serving God.
- You fulfilled your God given purpose.
- You kept your faith in God.
- You anticipate your reward from God.
Christians, live to love and serve Jesus, and death and dying will be a pleasant transition from labor to reward.
