Choose Life

Choose life, choose abundant life, always. This doesn't even have to do with the Bible folks, it's just a thought and it's a good one. Whether you are a Christian or not, it's time that you think about what life has to offer, how short life is, and what you can do each day to help someone else.

There are so many things I think about each day like; I still want to go the Grand Canyon, and I still want to go to Diamond Crater with my husband. Why wait? Carpe Diem, right? There is no reason we should ever wait to do the things we want to do.

If we really want to make them happen, they will. If something is important to us, we will make it come to fruition. Life is beautiful, so why don't more people embrace it? Why are people choosing to die? Why are we not placing value where value needs to be placed?

Choose Life Because it's Beautiful! 

Have you wondered why some folks are so hard on themselves? They cut themselves down, they doubt their gifts in life, and they NEVER seem to think they are worth believing in or listening to. They feel stupid, they feel lost, and they just don't percieve their life to hold any value. Why?

Who is telling them this? Why do we NOT make it more of a point to teach our children that they are so loved, valued, and precious? How could we NOT teach them this?

It has been said, that we should teach our children to build themselves up so strongly that nothing could ever poke holes in their self esteem, EVER. Their self image should be strong, bullet proof and they should never feel as though they aren't enough.

Life is a gift from God, as He is the giver. What we do with it is up to us, and when we choose life, we glorify God completely. We are sharing God with others when we:

  1. Show love
  2. Care for others 
  3. Care for the sick 
  4. Care for the poor 
  5. Give to the church 
  6. Give to charity 
  7. Hug a child and more 
How long has it been since you have done any of these things? Has it just been since yesterday or one year? Every time we go out and explore nature, or share a cup of coffee with a friend and listen to what is on his or her heart, we choose life

Think about what you can do right now to encourage someone, share your love, and be a friend to someone in need. Love is always right, and stepping out to teach others that they can be more, do more, and have more is living courageously

Choose life, it's precious.
