Word of the Day... February 26, 2013

I know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice and to do good in one’s lifetime…
It is the gift of God. Ecclesiastes 3:12 – 13

I love how the Lord gives us the ability to rejoice and to really just enjoy life. The happiest people I know are the ones with learned how to hold everything loosely and have given the worrisome, stress-filled, fearful details of their lives into the hands of the Lord.

One of the things that lung cancer forced me to learn is that life is short and I want to savor every moment I have left. I had to relax in my healing and just be still. I had to let go of all my cares and worries so that I could receive the peace of Jesus. I came to the realization that Jesus wanted to be involved in every moment of my life. I know now that He will never leave my side that His way is perfect, even in the midst of my messy imperfection.

I know that He feels this way about each and every one of us. Sometimes, I will just say his name… Jesus… And the Holy Spirit will begin to guide you. Sometimes people tell me they feel like God has deserted them. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. He's right there. He hasn't gone anywhere. It is us who choose to walk away from Him. So call out to Jesus and give him your heart.  I promise you that what you will get in return will be Simply Heavenly!!!! God bless you!!!
