If Tomorrow Never Comes...

By Chisimdi's blog - April 03, 2017



I woke up today and the house was unusually quiet. I listened. I couldn't hear my two younger siblings arguing as usual. Went to the kitchen and didn't see my aunty asking me if this is how I'll be sleeping in my husband's house. Walked to the parlor without meeting anyone on the way. My elder brother wasn't on the floor pressing his phone. There was no one in the balcony either. Oh my goodness!  The house was empty! I panicked. I heard a sound from the room closest to the balcony and rushed there, peeked and saw my dad with his back towards me bent over something. I became swept over by relief. But where did every other person go? Slowly, it dawned on me: they had raptured! The Lord had come for his children and he had left the sinners: my father and I for the devil!


Fear gripped me, then sorrow, then yesterday's memory began to play in my head, then the day before, last week, last year, my lifetime! All the memories were playing in my head at once. I shouldn't have used my brother's power bank last night without telling him. I shouldn't have spoken rudely to my aunty. I shouldn't have lied to my mum about where I was going on Thursday. I shouldn't have told that guy online that he was as ugly as the devil's ass. I shouldn't have told my kid sister I had no time to help her with her homework. I shouldn't have ignored God for such a long time... lots of regrets ran in my head and I was moved to tears. A very loud sound jolted me out of my thoughts. It was my ringtone. I checked and it was "My Love" calling, my mum! I picked quickly and she asked me to come to her workplace so I can go to the market from there. When I didn't answer, she asked if I was okay and I said I was. I was so relieved I could barely talk. I checked the time and it was almost  11:00AM. I had woken late. There hadn't been rapture after all!

As I was about to be happy and throw my sorrows through the window, I thought: what if rapture had really taken place today?  What if the Lord had come to take his people? Would I have been among? I watched a Ghanian movie where they asked, 'If tomorrow never comes, how would you live today?'

Let's make peace with the Lord today before it's too late.
Happy new month!
