To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up. In this devotional Desmond shares a life experience that serves as a remainder why the time we have is so valuable.

Value of Your Life
Many make the mistake and somehow believe who they are, is truly left up to their finite understanding of the things of life. When in reality the one who made them has all the answers and knows their true value. Matthew 6:26 In Luke 12:7 we read that even the hairs of our head are numbered it’s truly amazing the love God has for us. It’s important to note that as we live from day to day our choices help shape where we will eventually end up.
Whether we’re making simple decisions as where to work, or what to eat ultimately it is those simple every day decisions that shape where we live, how we commute, and even the size of our waist line. As a result to know your true identity is key, because it will shape the life you live.
Making Timely Decisions
The cause of God demands men who can see quickly and act instantaneously at the right time and with power. If you wait to measure every difficulty and balance every perplexity you meet you will do but little. You will have obstacles and difficulties to encounter at every turn, and you must with firm purpose decide to conquer them, or they will conquer you.

If you wait to measure every difficulty and balance every perplexity you meet you will do but little. You will have obstacles and difficulties to encounter at every turn, and you must with firm purpose decide to conquer them, or they will conquer you. Sometimes various ways and purposes, different modes of operation in connection with the work of God, are about evenly balanced in the mind; but it is at this very point that the nicest discrimination is necessary.
And if anything is accomplished to the purpose it must be done at the golden moment. The slightest inclination of the weight in the balance should be seen and should determine the matter at once. Long delays tire the angels. It is even more excusable to make a wrong decision sometimes than to be continually in a wavering position, to be hesitating, sometimes inclined in one direction, then in another. More perplexity and wretchedness result from thus hesitating and doubting than from sometimes moving too hastily.
Testimonies to the Church Vol 3
As mentioned in Desmond’s audio the song Tomorrow by the Winans gives an insight into the fact that the next moment of your life isn’t promised. It makes it clear that now is the best time to choose Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 6:2)
