On Thursday evening while bowling with my husband, a gentleman on the next pair of alleys collapsed. CPR was administered, 911 called. In that moment my first instinct was to pray– something that has always comforted whether in time of need or not.
We have since learned the man died that night. How sad that he kissed his wife goodbye and she had no idea it would be for the last time. Makes you think doesn’t it? No one knows the time or the hour. We are all put on this earth for a limited time.
Death isn’t something any of us like to think about, really, but I do want to make sure I am spiritually prepared for what’s to come. I pray for a long, happy life and to do God’s will while I’m here. I’ve found myself in some pretty sticky situations along the way, but always had the strength and wisdom I needed to get through.
I just finished a bible study on living a lifestyle pleasing to God. Some of the topics we discussed were: handling anger, dealing with difficult people, finding happiness, living with integrity, changing the world around you, how to pray, how to stop worrying and start living. This study reminded me how I want to live and be seen by others.
During this holy Easter time, draw closer to God, and do your best to obey His commands. He has given us great rules to live by and yet our world is a mess. Reach out to loved ones, search your heart and soul, grow spiritually, and encourage others. For anyone who is a skeptic, that’s ok. Do some research, go deeper!
Easter Blessings to all :)
