If you are reading this, then you are alive and have life – Praise God! To be alive is a privilege. Life is precious and special and it is meant to be lived that way. It is not by our own doing that we are alive, but by the mercies of God.
Being alive means we have the opportunity to experience God’s goodness through the beauty of His creation, relationships at work or at home. It also means that we have another opportunity to correct the mistakes of yesterday.
There are so many things to be thankful for on a daily basis. To mention a few there are good health, wealth, joy, a roof over our heads, peace, friends and family who care, strangers who help us when we shed a tear, and God’s presence that takes away our fears. Life is for living, not just existing, and since we have life we must live it to the full – and give God thanks for it!
Do you have life? Then be thankful. Yes, you may have problems and issues, but don’t worry about them. Instead, present them to God and be encouraged in the knowledge that with God, there is hope in your future.
