Giving Honor To God Almighty: Celebrating The Gift Of Life

It’s been almost 21 days since my new year began on Sunday, April 8, 2018 at 9:48 am central standard time. And what a journey it has been becoming. Thank You, Jesus!

The Bible states in  Psalm 90:10 esv  “The years of our life are seventy,  or even by reason of strength eighty; yet their span is but toil and trouble;  they are soon gone, and we fly away.”

I’m thinking about my life.
I’m in my golden years. According to my age some say,  I’m a senior citizen. I don’t feel a senior citizen. I know that I’m getting up in years by the grace of God.  Age is like art. We should wear our age the best way we know how.

What a thought of looking forward to a new decade. I’m five years away from my third 20’s. I want to continue to be doing the will of God and on the journey with Jesus. As I’m living in the present, it will lead me to where I will go. Jesus is my hope and my trust.

 I’ve been searching for my family connections.
I’ve come across relatives who have passed, way too soon.  I stumbled across my Great Grandmother, Susan (Leach)Washington’s obituary in an old newspaper. She was 54 years old at the time of her death in January of 1890. (I was 54 when I found the obituary.)

Our lives are to be 70’s years and if by strength 80.  I want to live life as promised by God  and to the fullness thereof. Life is a precious gift. The gift that Jesus has given to us. I’m thankful for my gift of life.

As I’ve learning to take up my cross daily and to follow Jesus daily, I’m headed somewhere… Life is a journey; a journey well traveled.  I know I can’t travel alone. Thanks for being with me LORD and for those in Whom you place in my pathway throughout my journey.

The month of April has always been a month of New Beginnings.
It’s the month that I was born in. So, I’ve adapted to begin new things during the month of April. What new things have I started this month? What will come of it? Time will time.

May the LORD lead us in the way that we should go.
May we invest our days as we journey with Jesus.
May we do the best with what we have.

Thanks for reading.
God bless you.
