What am I?
I am loved
I am blessed
I am beautifully and wonderfully made
I have a great life ahead of me
So are you.
Do you know that you are loved unconditionally?
Golden week is coming!
(about a week’s holiday in Japan)
Grab your friends, see a movie, go shopping, go see a motorbike race. Do something!
Don’t just sit at home, playing the computer and watching Tv. You’ll feel that you didn’t get a real break when you get back to work. (trust the voice of experience)
And yes, if that means you don’t read the rest of this blog, that’s fine too! Just get up and go!
When someone asks you:
“What did you do with your time off?”
What do you want to be able to say?
Reasons I often hear and used to use myself…
I can’t spare the money (and by the way have you seen my new DVD?)
I haven’t got the time (oh yeah, did you see that tv show? I never miss it!)
I can’t find the right charity/church/organisation (but I’m not really looking anyway)
A window is opened.
I love the idea that even when you make plans in your life, anything can happen to shake them up.
When I was 17, my plans for my life were big, but not great.
I thought only of what I wanted. What I could get out of life, and what would give me as much as possible with the least effort.
Needless to say, these plans didn’t work out.
But I realized that as long as I was willing to change my thinking, and constantly be aiming towards something great for others, I would have success.
Here’s the amazing thing.
Helping others has actually helped me!
I have goals on my life, I’m putting in effort in helping others, both at work and at church. But this is rewarding me too!
Now I have other plans for my life. But I expect that the unexpected will happen too.
What are your plans leading you to?
My response? Why does it matter to you if you don’t believe?
I love living my life, and am not in any rush to end it. But I’m not going to fear what comes after death, because I have something to believe in.
My question to you isn’t “Will you go to heaven?”
“What do you really want to believe in?”
