Am I the only one that feels this way about life?
When I think about the last number of years or really the last number of days, it seems like they have sped by me with the speed of light or maybe even with the craziness of all the lights coming at me at one time, in multi-color. In many way it just seems like yesterday when I thought my parents, who had to have been in their thirties, were ancient! And now I’m almost twice that age. What does that make me, prehistoric!
Anyway, point being, life happens quickly it seems and comes at you from all directions. For many years, I simply lived that life making it through the day. Not really giving it a thought, except for just how I was going to make it. And now……………… I have decided………God is pushing me………to make it with a purpose.
I’ve learned a valuable lesson which helped me find my purpose. I’ve learned that God loves me. Yes, little ole, simple me! I could go through all the things that I’m NOT or those that I am. But those things would be my perception of me not God’s perception of me. And honestly, HIS is all that matters.
You know that until I realized how much God loved me and what my value was in HIM, I saw no value in myself and honestly didn’t even really love myself. Until this……..
Mark 12:30-31 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
So this is my purpose, “Love my neighbor as myself”. You see, I couldn’t do that until I loved myself.
I challenge you to take a good look and see if you love yourself as God loves you. Because if you don’t, you can’t love others.
I pray that you will study the scriptures, find His love and live your LIFE with purpose.
