The ad said, “Add life to wherever you live” and I began to wonder if I actually did that. Sure I can refresh my home by tossing a few new pillows onto my couch, but what am I doing to add actual life to my life?
God gave me this verse when my husband was first diagnosed with cancer.
This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life… (Deuteronomy 30:19-20b, NIV)
We decided to choose life by living and celebrating every day as a gift from God, which of course it is. In fact, the Lord himself is our life.
We must be willing to let go of the life we planned for ourselves, in order to have the life that is waiting for us. (Joseph Campbell)
Prayer- Lord God, Thank you for the life you are and offer to us, through your Son Jesus Christ. Amen.
