Marsha's Musings: If I Died Right Now, Could I Say I Finished the Course? (II Timothy 4:6-8 NKJV)

For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing. (II Timothy 4:6-8 NKJV)

Paul is nearing the end of his life.  It appears he has no regrets about how he lived his life for Christ.  Can I say the same right now?  What can I do to be more committed to Jesus Christ?  What can I do to be able to say this with Paul when my life comes to an end?  Whatever I can do, I need to do it now because I am not guaranteed the year, month, day or hour.
