9.25.18 – What brings life?

As I sit here this morning, I feel overwhelmed with… something. Just thinking on the ways the Lord works, how before we know it we’re doing certain things and it’s just like — wait… how? And yet, we are. I know that sounds extremely vague. Maybe one day I’ll be able to share more. The Lord is just good. He’s so kind, and I’m thankful for His grace and for the favor He gives us.

I’ve been thinking a lot about “life” — what is “life”? And what brings and gives “life”? I know life comes from God, but I mean in specific, practical ways…. what kinds of words bring life? What kinds of thoughts bring life? What kinds of foods are alive and bring more life? What kinds of decisions bring life?

“The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”

–Job 33:4

What brings more “life” to life? I really think a huge part of it is trusting and obeying because the Lord is there, ready to give us more life, ready to show us the ways to more life, and when we trust Him and obey, our eyes are opened to those ways and then by His grace we can step into them.

I’m thankful that somehow I’m now finally starting to be able to live my life.

“You have granted me life and lovingkindness; And Your care has preserved my spirit.”

–Job 10:12

Did I ever tell you that my favorite color is green? After all these years I finally decided that it’s my favorite.
