The gift of life is by far more precious than anything I can imagine, yet many of us take life for granted everyday. Some of us take life for granted in the way that we treat ourselves and others, then there are those of us who just give up on life completely. The word life, itself implies living, growing and have the ability to change. When God created all life and He gave it purpose. It was never intended for mankind to be alone or isolated. In living we are to glorify God by how we give and share with others.
Yes! It’s true that life is frail, but if we trust in God, life with all it frailties will produce hope, not in ourselves, but in Jesus. The psalmist King David must have learned this valuable lesson about life, I am reminded of this song he wrote, Psalm 118:24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. I strongly suggest that you read all of Psalm 118, it will encourage you to have a better perspective towards life, but more than life itself, you may find yourself coming to a place of worship and recognition of who the true life giver is, The Lord God.
The way we choose to live our lives is up to each of us, but there is a word of caution and wisdom given to all from the Book of Proverbs. Proverbs 14:12 “There is a way which seem right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” There are many ways that a person can choose to live out their life and I’ve given some thought to some of those ways concerning my own life, at times I have found myself at different points that have taken me through various stages, some of which have brought me comfort and others pain to myself and others. Take a moment to reflect on your life today, think about some of the stages that you have already gone through, ask yourself, “at what stage I’m I in today?” And where does God want me to be? Know that you and I have the ability to change how we accept our circumstances in life, with the help of Jesus we can make those needed changes in how we live.
