A life worth living.

“In the end, its not the years In your life that counts but the life in your years”.

                                  -Abraham Lincoln

I recently read about some highly placed individuals in the society who were wealthy but actually did not live life cause they ended up ridiculed and their wealth couldn’t get them anywhere at the end of the day.

A song writer says “Only remembered by what we have done.” People think life is measured by the amassing of wealth, great achievements etc.  Our life years matters, and our life years depends on how much impact we have made in the lives of others and our society in general.

A smile to that little girl looking worn out and tired, can cheer up her soul and make her look forward to tomorrows  chores .

A thank you to that conductor who gave you a crumpled change  can lighten up his day.

It was only a sunny smile, But it scattered the night. Thus little it cost in giving, it made the day worth living.”
                                       -Anonymus.

The helping hand you lend to that old woman would relief her of her stress, making her grateful of your presence in her life.

A simple compliment to that young Lady at the mall would make her want to do more to help.

“Don’t allow idleness to deceive you; for while you give him today , he steals tomorrow from you.”
                                            -H. Crowquill

.

There is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving.”
                                   -Henry Drummon

Get living today, love, give and add more years to your life
Life is lived when we are able to lift others decided where you would rather be today.

What is normal ?

Back in secondary school i travelled from the  north down to the south I plowed the major high way with either my parent or I go  alone. When I was much younger ( 0- 12 ) we would take the night bus or my dad would drive us all. The last time we drove as a family down south, was for my grandma’s burial, while coming back we saw a car whose driver was in a haste the driver tried to over take us , he finally got ahead of us,   a wide gap was between us due to the speed but after a while we saw that same car in a terrible accident didn’t think anyone survived.

Before I left for school I  and my cousin who was staying with us  planned to attend a birthday of my little cousin in another state and also  wanted to use the opportunity to see other family members over there. On a faithful evening my mum called me and told me that my cousin was no more. I was in shock wondering, thinking, wishing I could have stopped whatever killed her if I was there. I thought about the plans we made and her beautiful face and wished it was all a lie (her death )

Recently I had a story of young man who invited his lady friend to his house  so they could have fun ( so called ) and she came, he needed some money he was with his ATM and he asked his lady friend to come along so she did. They both entered a bike together, not long after they got in the road their bike was hit and this young vibrant creatures who had great plans for the night and period they’ll be together where rushed to the hospital, the lady in a coma and the man bashed up  too bad.

Every time we find ourselves alive we make plans for tomorrow, we forget that life is like a vapour which appears for a while then vanishes away and we ought to commit our ways into God’s hands.  James 4 : 12 – 14

You think it’s normal to drink water with your mouth and not choke, you think it’s normal to sit up straight without complaining of back ache, you think if you eat right you’ll live long – isn’t that what our doctors or medical personnel tell us (no offence I’m one of them ),  we move around daily we see our relations and neighbor around us we don’t even acknowledge them or drop a smile to cheer them up. It doesn’t even occur to us that we might not be here tomorrow  and our legacy is what we’ll be remembered for.

Do you know that many out there had thought the same way and some where even better in health, wealth, had great qualifications in life but today they are either dead, leaving In regret crying had i known, wishing they could turn the hands of time.

I’m here to remind you of a few things and to tell you to be GRATEFUL . Be grateful for the life you have because it’s a gift and a precious one at that so it’s not normal it’s by his GRACE you’re alive today.

His love is what’s sustaining you, you must not have known that before. He went to Calvary for your sake redeeming you with his blood. Oh how more can one express his love for you if not by this sacrifice. Just so you know there was no condition  so his love is unconditional, he cares so much for you what  you can do to appreciate him, is give your life to him acknowledged his presence in your life. Its unbelievable but his love is for real and he’s willing to give you more than you ask him when you come.

Have a great week.

Where is your alabaster box?

Mark 14, has it focus but i’ll
focus today on the alabaster box and it owner. In Verse 3b of this chapter it says
“…there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.”

image

For one to move to any destination, there must be a knowledge of that destination if not a purpose. Alabaster box lady knew who Jesus was and sought out his whereabout, she had thought about him always, maybe she even prayed to God to help him in his cause, for she knew through the Holy spirit what was to come within the following days. He’d always been in her heart else she wouldn’t have looked for him the way she did. Due to her love for him she looked for ways to express it and she came up with the ointment and the alabaster box. This was her best idea and Jesus knew it, she was no ordinary lady, Nah she wasn’t. One who used over a years wage maybe that was all she had left for a costly  ointment – spikenard.

image

She was one who did not let people’s opinion about her love for Jesus and her method of confession of that love bother her. Looking back at her personality I see a confident woman without shame , cause her love for him could not be compared to any other, A woman with a heart of Gold.

Alabaster box signifies one distinctive value in an individual peculiar to that generation. Her gift was unreserved, and honour exclusive.

Every individual have a potential, something in us put in there by God and one way or the other he’s done something for every individual on earth (1 John 2: 12- 14). We ought to offer him our offering daily in all our activities he requires Glory, Honour, Strength, Fear, Gladness, Worship ( PS 29 : 1 – 2, 96 : 6 – 9).

Nothing is too small to be offered. But just so you know their must be  a cost, a price must be paid  ( 1 Chron 21:24b) anything that does not cost you is not a worthy gift. He needs your Heart, Time,  Money, Love, Intellectual, Voice, Hands, Feet and the best of all we have with devotion. Make your choice now,Give him your best
