John 14:16, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life”
Life… what’s it all about? No, really- I’m not talking about peanut butter or coffee hear (though they do make it quite enjoyable!) I mean what are we, you, anyone living for?
Money? Prosperity? Enjoyment?
By any chance is it this?
Is is God? His Love and His Promises?
What is life without God? And what is a life if not spent living fo God?
There isn’t one. In my humble opinion anyway.
This earthly life is nothing more than a grain of sand in an hourglass that will soon run out. I don’t mean this to be morbid, but in the scope of eternity-it is so true.
But a life spent for God is spent as an enjoyable ride on the journey to eternal joy.
So why worry about tomorrow, why worry about today?
They are merely stepping stones to Heaven and the eternal happiness it will bring.
Lord, please help remind us all this Lenten season how small the dealings of this life truly are. Help us to live a life of meaning – a life for You. As I seek to deepen our relationship, please help may be filled with Your zeal and love of life and I pray that I (we) may be a beacon of these things everyday You wake us up and allow us to sing Your praises and spread Your love another day.
Here’s to a blessed Lenten Season filled with love and renewal of the spirit! God Bless!
