I Love This Life!
Undeniably, Love is the single-most powerful force in the universe. It motivates, it heals, it transforms; and it endures. Love is the DNA of creation. Understandably, Love is God and God is Love.
Life is God’s gift to humanity. Indeed, the entire spectrum of emotions and experiences; love, anticipation, community, brotherhood, compassion, excitement, gratitude, humility, joy, solitude, among others. Yet, to maintain balance, perspective and context; sadness, grief, fear, loneliness, anxiety, desperation, yes, even hatred, come along for the ride.
“And because of the Free Will that God granted us, we are compelled to make judgments and choices, and set priorities within our lives; and then, live with the consequences of those freedoms. And you’ve heard it before, with authority comes responsibility; specifically, a spiritual accountability for our souls.”
The regulators, of course, for our lives, are our attitude and personal discipline. I prefer to be an optimist, a helper, and work to inspire those around me with positive energy. My desire to accept the privilege to meet Jesus Christ in heaven fuels my discipline. He likewise serves as my inspiration, as He is the nucleus within my soul.
I choose to be who I am, what I think, where I go, who I engage, and when I give thanks for the abundance of gifts I have been bestowed, knowing that life can seem an eternity yet be as short as the dash. The beautiful natural environment is ours to enjoy, along with its abundant flora and fauna, indeed, each other. I shudder at the magnificent beauty of our world. It is incomprehensible for me, then, not to possess an intense and sincere gratitude for everything in my life, good and not so good. Profoundly, gratitude FOR my life.
Likewise, none of us are perfect, and accordingly, as difficult as it is, I strive to offer forgiveness when warranted, as well as to seek it when I hurt others and commit sins. Prayer complements our actions in life and opens a direct communication channel with God. The essential aspect is to never stop striving to improve as a child of God.
Most assuredly, as it was written, no person knows the day, the hour and the moment when Jesus Christ will return to fulfill bible prophecy. It is a mystery, a secret, by design. So, until that time arrives, I will wholeheartedly, unashamedly, and unapologetically, Love my Life… because God Knows, When Will It End?
