For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit.
1 Peter 3:18
“Guard your heart above all else,
for it determines the course of your life.”
If you want to boast, boast only about the Lord.
2 Corinthians 10:17
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing,
so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.”
“You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the
lives of His saints; He delivers them from the hand of the wicked.”
I love this quote from Robert Brault.
It describes life with children perfectly, not to mention daily life in general.
What really makes this life special?
It’s not the occasional trips or once-in-a-lifetime experiences…it’s the little things.
Those little things add up to what your life is.
I correlate that with:
- Do what you love, and love what you do.
- Spend time with those you love.
- Relax a bit.
- Take time to appreciate those things and people around you.
- Help others.
- Learn something new. You may discover a new passion.
- Think about what you really want and go after it. Make your dreams reality!
What do those things mean to me?
I don’t want to wake up one day and realize that all those little things I disliked became my life. I don’t want to spend all my time with things that I don’t value.
whatever you commit your time to will ultimately determine what your life represented.
So choose carefully.
This life passes faster than any of us realizes.
