When I wrote my book “My Precious Life” in 2014 I had heard this expression many times but didn’t pay much attention to its meaning. Now, as I watch what’s happening the world over, millions of people dying of the coronavirus, others succumbing to life’s natural cycle, it is hitting home just how precious life is.
Are we really living on a daily basis? Are we making the most of our days? Are we looking out for our friends, family, neighbor? Are we saying, “I love you” and then showing that love?
There is more to life than eating, sleeping, working and playing, and because life is precious we need to make sure we are truly living.
Today I am going to make a concentrated effort to really live. I don’t know what that will look like but will let God handle the details. Carpe diem!
The antidote to all things wrong in this world is love. What our topsy-turvy planet needs now is this antidote. So come on world, in the words of the Bellamy Brothers (1976) let your love grow…and grow and grow…
Here is a comment made by one listener: “I was listening to this in the store, had to come home and look it up.. it felt like the Holy Spirit came over me while it was playing…I love this.”
We are never too young or too old to pray. I was four years old when I learned to pray and am now eighty-three and still praying. Our world needs more people praying, young, old, and in between. Happy Tuesday.
In today’s world it seems things just go from bad to worse. The virus appears to ease off just to rear its head again in different parts of the globe. Violence and crime walk hand in hand; peaceful protests turn ugly; rulers bend the rules; fires, floods, ferocious winds and earthquakes ravish the earth. And we, the human race, ask, “Is there any hope?”
Scripture says, “For in hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.” Romans 8:24-25
The following song keeps me hopeful. Happy Sunday.
How many would agree that our world is in a precarious position at this moment in time? With so much talk of working together and thinking of others, let’s also add a little bit more of what the world needs now. I can just hear you singing your heart out.
Many of us are truly horrified with what’s going on in our world today. Revelation tells us that Jesus has a vision for our world and what it will be like. It may not be in your time or mine, but there is always hope. Happy Sunday.
Here is a scripture that profoundly changed my life once I truly realized its meaning. When we begin to change our way of thinking and open up to the fact that there is more to this world than the day to day physical activities, grudges, hurts, etc., then a whole new life begins to take shape. Simply put, change your way of thinking. Go ahead…be transformed. Happy Monday.
How often in our lifetime do we encounter people who suffer from narcissism or visions of grandeur or even the ‘holier than thou’ syndrome. This has been said of me because of my complete surrendering of my life to God.
Then there are those who constantly think of others with care and compassion; who put the needs and feelings of others before their own; whose very existence is spent in the service of others.
The thing is, our world is in the grip of a virus that is striking people down mercilessly not stopping to differentiate between royalty and the commoner, the rich and the poor, the young and the old; the homeless and the mansion dwellers; or people like the above .
We, the world, are in what is being called a silent war, and we are in it together. Altogether. All together.
This virus has been named many things by many people but someone recently dubbed it ‘the great equalizer‘ I hope and pray that we will never again have to be reminded to think of our world as one, no matter our life status, creed, or culture. Our world.
Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. John 13:16
