Life is a Journey

Not one of us chose to be born into this world. But we are here!!  And we are here to stay!  Each  of our lives had a beginning – that began when we were conceived. We all have different mothers and fathers.

However, God’s word tells us that we ALL have the same MAKER – God.    God chose which seed our mothers would conceive.  That seed was you and me.  We read it in God’s Word – In Psalm 139   (See below)                  

All of us have our life story to tell. Not one of us has had the same journey.  Each journey is unique and different.  Our stories are filled with the challenges we have faced. Decisions we have had to make.  Our stories tell of the times we were living on cloud 9 and other times there is no cloud to be seen!!!   Our stories never end.

So what is this life all about?

On a journey it is always good to stop.  So on this journey called life it is good to stop and ask what is this life all about?

Because God is our Maker He must have the answer.  There must be a bigger plan. He is God.
During my journey I heard about a Gift God wanted to give me, and not only me but anyone who would receive the gift.

The gift is not something we would receive in our hands.  The gift is a person – Jesus, God’s Son.

Jesus has his own life story to tell. We can read all about His life in the bible.  God sent Jesus to this earth as a baby.  He too was conceived and at the age of 33, was willing to be sacrificed on the cross, so that His blood could wash us clean.

 It would give us a new beginning with God, as part of our lives. So great is the gift, that He says He will live within us. God is Holy and can only live within a person who has been washed clean, by the blood of Jesus.

A new journey began for me when I believed in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice and invited Him to live in me. He washed me clean.  My Maker now became My Lord and My Saviour. With Jesus in me, I now have Him, as the captain of my life. He Guides me, encourages me,  loves me and so much more.  Yes, life is still filled with the storms and sunshine’s of this life.  But Jesus is always there.

The Christian life is not boring.  God is not boring.  We look at what He has created.  Just look at you and me. Definitely not boring. Many miracles happen to those who have Jesus in their lives.

One storm I have just gone through is cancer. Hearing 3 words ‘You have cancer’ took me straight into a storm. With Jesus living in me I knew He will be in control. While having chemo many of the patients would encourage each other with positive thinking. We just need to be positive they would say to each other.
My Trust is in the Lord my God.

As our journey in life has a beginning it must have an end.  This gift from God includes living in heaven with Him for eternity. What a gift we have been offered.  Not by a man – But by The Living God – Jesus is His name.

Extracts from the verses in Psalm 139

“Thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.” (God chose which seed would be conceived – u and me)

“I will praise thee for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works.”

“My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret.” (our Mom’s only knew 6 weeks later that we were there)

“In thy book all my members were written.”

“How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them.”

“If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake I am still with thee.”
                                                                                                                           
God Bless.
