There are so many reasons to love the Lord
This is my birthday month, but I had a second birthday years ago and each year I want to add a reason why I love the Lord. I believe there are too many to write. When I was a little girl (read my testimony here) I was born into the Family of God. Everyone needs to be born into God’s family in order to have life eternal. Words can never express my gratitude to the Savior for adopting me into His family and allowing me to be called one of His children. Isn’t God’s grace amazing! Amazing Grace that could give me new birth and save a wretch like me.
As I update this post from year to year, I am simply amazed at how fast the time flies, or as one said, “Time isn’t flying, we are flying through time” Isn’t that true? I want people everywhere to think, to listen, to realize, that LIFE. IS. A. VAPOR. It is not just like a vapor, but it is a vapor! It appears for a little while and then vanishes away!
James 4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
What are you going to to with that little while? Are you going to spend your days seeking worldly pleasures or are you going to choose to love the Lord God with all your heart and set you affections on things above? Time is short and we will soon be on this earth no more. Please, please make sure you Know the Lord as Savior and then spend your days in ways that are pleasing to Him, doing what lasts for eternity.
