THAT’S LIFE

Every day that you wake up is a day from God.  You may wake up filled with pain, grief, sorrow and hurting; all you want is for the pain to stop.  Trust me God knows it.  He still loves you and He cares for you more than you know.

Have you ever consider that when you came into this world it was through someone else’s pain.  The pain of a mother giving birth to her child.  Even though she knew the cost of pain, she was willing to bare it, endure it, to bring her child into this world.  She did it even though it would mean unbearable pain.  And yes, even the possibility of her death.  

So what is it that gives us the strength to bare the unbearable pain that most certainly comes with life?  Love, we do it all for love time and time again.  For love of family, for the love of a friend, Oh! Let us not forget for the love of life itself.

The wisest man in the world once said, “All is vanity, a chasing of the wind.”  Many scholars have made attempts to interpret what Solomon, King David’s son, meant by a chasing of the wind.  I heard it’s been said that his words were spoken out of great depression.  I believe now that he shared these word out of great love.  A love for life, the kind of life that only God can give.  The same God that gave him His wisdom.  

Solomon had come to a point of understanding that without God’s involvement in every aspect of your life, “All is vanity, meaningless, it is but a chasing of the wind.”  None of our possessions, people, places or things really matter when you peel back the layers and discover that their is no love.  When it comes to love, God is its author; Jesus is its deliver; and the Holy Spirit is its comforter.

ECCLESIASTES 1:14

I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.

ECCLESIASTES 2:24-26

24 There is nothing better for man than to eat, drink, and enjoy his work. I have seen that even this is from God’s hand,25 because who can eat and who can enjoy life apart from Him? 26 For to the man who is pleasing in His sight, He gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy, but to the sinner He gives the task of gathering and accumulating in order to give to the one who is pleasing in God’s sight. This too is futile and a pursuit of the wind.

 ECCLESIASTES  8:15

15 So I commended enjoyment because there is nothing better for man under the sun than to eat, drink, and enjoy himself, for this will accompany him in his labor during the days of his life that God gives him under the sun.

Through all these struggles and cares of life, God makes it worth living!  Amen

  • Amen ! We are so fortunate to have the most loving Father and all He has is ours. What do we have to complain about. Nada! We would be foolish to do so. No pain no gain as they say. Being molded sometimes causes tough situations and un comfortable circumstances. But the result is eternally worth any hardship in this temporal world. In eternity it’s a twinkling of the eye. Take comfort He has overcome the world!

  • Good post Billy. So true love is the great motivator that counts for eternity. And not that mushy, puppy, Lifetime channel love, but that love that wants the higher good for others, even through the pain like in 1 Cor. 13 and not like the so-called love of

  • Yes! Dennis we are truly a blessed people to be apart of God’s kingdom. And while the door to that kingdom is still open, let whosoever will, call on the name of Jesus to be saved. Let us proclaim His gospel to the lost, that they too may join us in LIFE ETERNAL. Amen
