Are you finished? Or just done?

I've been pondering a quote from this past weekend....we had a guest speaker at church and at the end of his sermon he made a comment that really got me thinking. He said at the end of our life, we don't want to stand before our Lord and say, "but Lord, I didn't get finished...I was going to get around to doing your will...I just ran out of time and didn't finish..." He went on to say, "even if you're not finished, you'll be done." Ouch! I want to finish!! How about you? I don't want to just be done...I want to finish all that God has planned for my life. I know this deployment is part of God's unique plan for me. He knew even as I was being formed in my unwed mother's womb that I would be at this point in my life. Nothing takes Him by surprise. Oh, how I desire to finish what He has for me. How can I know what that is unless I'm in an intimate relationship with my Lord? The answer. I can't. So how about it? Are we on this journey together? Let's do this thing....let's not just get done with this life....let's FINISH this life!
