I AM — The Life!

Day 2248: Bringing my Mom to our house from hip replacement rehab today. Mixed emotions, but bottom line privileged to help her in her time of need!

Scripture:  Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6

Thoughts/questions: ‘Ah, the good life!’ ‘It doesn’t get any better than this!’ ‘It was heaven, pure heaven!’ But Jesus stated that He is the life, so what gives?

The life is a life lived abundantly now and victoriously forever! That is the life He has planned for us and when we embrace God’s complete plan for us, we attain that life. Not a perfect life, but a life that seeks God’s perspective in ALL circumstances, and a life that puts today’s events in perspective compared to the light of eternity.

The life – not a self-centered life, but a God centered one. The life – not just here today, gone tomorrow; but here today and in heaven tomorrow!

Jesus is the life!!!

Suggested prayer: Dear Jesus, help me to get my eyes off of myself and earnestly seek to fulfill all that You have planned for me . . .
