ROMANS 15:13 (NIV)
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
DO NOT MISS OUT ~
I will never forget talking a walk with some ladies from my church. I have a friend named Lois that was talking about a beautiful flower along the way. She was surprised that I didn't see it. That was the day that I noticed things around me more. I decided to look at things as I walked instead of being a million miles away in thoughts. We do often miss out on things we aren't look for in life or even somethings we are in life.
One of the things I look for driving into Napa, is hot air balloon. People pay a lot of money to get into this basket and travel high in the sky. Overlooking the Napa Valley and seeing the beauty of it. No matter where you live, you can find some beauty either outside or inside your lives. Look around today and see all the things you do have in life. Even the little things can be precious and you don't want to miss them.
Ecclesiastes 3 New International Version (NIV)
A Time for Everything There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
DO NOT MISS OUT ~
The Bible speaks of a time for everything. It is time for you to surrender your heart to God. We search for things in life, while missing out on the most precious gifts in front of us. We don't see the plans of the enemy of our soul or long term picture of one choice. God wants us to stay on the path he has chosen for each of us. Watching and guarding our hearts from division and the great divide of life. Life is way to short to get stuck in the past and miss out on our now. Yes, there is a time for for everything, but don't forget there is a time to enjoy life again.
LOST FRIENDSHIPS ~
We loose friendships for different reasons. One is that we grow apart because our interest are no longer the same. We miss out by not wanting to get involved in life and once again, the great divide happens in life. Some friendships were meant for a season of life but never to be forgotten. Some were never meant to be and the the enemy of our soul put distractions in our life. God wants our full focus on him and he will connect to real people who care about you.
I don't want to miss out on things in life, because I look back to see missed opportunities. There was a time when I prayed for real friends and for friends to stay in life. God that did and I continue to guard my heart from distractions in life. I hope you will too. Real friendships given by God are the best!
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. I don't want you to miss on the biggest blessings because of distraction or not wanting to get involved in church or lives of others. Life is way to short and I encourage you today to take care of you!
Hebrews 10:24-25 New International Version (NIV)And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
