Life, as we know it, is fleeting. The Bible tells us that - "life is but a vapor"- and the older I get the more I understand that truth. We only have a certain number of days and none of us know how long that is. So while you are here CHOOSE LIFE.
This past week, my husband and I looked at a piece of property. Hence the waterfall above. That waterfall is on the property in which we are looking. Hearing the constant loud sound of the water rushing by was, well, soothing.
It reminded me of life. There are some constant things about life, there are some loud things about life and there are some soothing things about life. But just like that waterfall is vibrant and flowing right now, it does die out in mid-summer. It dries up for about two months out of the year.
Today, we are vibrant and flowing with life, so choose life. Use this time to live to the fullest. Jesus said He came to bring life and life to the full. Don't waste it!
Just as there are seasons in our world, there are seasons in life. Some are hard, some are easy, some are sweet, some are bitter - a time for everything. In Christ we are overcomers. We are victors!
Our family is entering a new season of life. It's hard to let go of the past, watch the present as it changes and know that the future will be vastly different than what I had thought it would be. But I am choosing life!
I am choosing to forgive, to let go of hurts, to embrace a new season, to live vibrantly in the full life that Jesus has already paid for and given to us. Whatever the circumstances - whatever our perceptions - whatever..., we have a choice to make. This day - choose.
'This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now chooselife, so that you and your children may live.' Deuteronomy 30:19
