Life Is A Gift

Privileges abound that we sometimes take for granted. If only we can think long enough, we will have enough reason to thank God for the life we have. You may not be where you want to be, but once there is life you can still dream and arrive at your intended destination.

I want to give you an exercise, list 5 things you are grateful to God for. Don't be surprised some of the items in the list could be things you've been taking for granted all this while.

Has God given you life? Take out time today to appreciate Him for where you are and soon you will arrive at where you aspire to be. The quote below, by an unknown author, captures the picture I'm trying to paint here:

Today before you think of saying an unkind word–
think of someone who can’t speak.

Before you complain about the taste of your food–
think of someone who has nothing to eat.

Before you complain about your husband or wife–
think of someone who is crying out to God for a companion.

Today before you complain about life–
think of someone who went too early to heaven.

Before you complain about your children–
think of someone who desires children but they’re barren.

Before you argue about your dirty house, someone didn’t clean or sweep–
think of the people who are living in the streets.

Before whining about the distance you drive–
think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.

And when you are tired and complain about your job–
think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job.

But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another–
remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer to one maker.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down–
put a smile on your face and thank God you’re alive and still around.

Life is a gift – Live it, Enjoy it, Celebrate it, and Fulfill it.

See you at the top!
