A Promised Blessing

It’s FRIDAY but Sunday’s COMING!!!

Good Morning my friends,

Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!! Those words mean something a lot different than they did 15…20….and even 30 years ago. For me they mean something a lot different than what the world we live in promotes, through advertising, the media, entertainment and especially in the lifestyles of the rich and famous. The world shouts to us to “Live for yourself,” it proclaims for you to “Have a good time; indulge your senses; pursue every pleasure; strive for success. And if you do, then you’ll be happy and blessed.” Oh how the world loves to lie to us.. I once lived this life and when I tell you that my life was filled with turmoil and stress that is an understatement. The life of going out to a bar every Friday and Saturday night and running up a bar tab as if I were made of money. Being loud & boisterous.. The all around party guy.

“Blessed are they whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of The Lord.) (Psalm 119:1)


Those words from the psalmist’s present a different view of life. Their view was similar to the one that I have today. God calls us to live another way–His way. Blessings, that come only from following Him. Nothing of the world can even come close to delivering what God promises; in fact, all other ways deliver the exact opposite of what it promises. Some of the most miserable people I’ve ever known were highly successful people, but their eyes were affixed in the world. Deep down inside, those people. were restless and spiritually empty.

Don’t allow yourself to fall into the world’s trap, following its self indulgent goals and driven by its self centered motives? It can happen to you before even realize it. Keep Christ first in your life, and make it your goal to live according to His Word.

My CHALLENGE PRAYER…. Don’t let the lights & glamour of the world cloud your focus on Christ..

I hope you all have a FANTASTIC day.. Blessings & much love….D

Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!!!
