Life Reflections


Have you reflected on your life lately? Before we move forward, reflection is necessary to determine success or failure. Can you say that you are blessed?

As we come to realize that all things work together for our good, we become grateful for the many blessings from God. Things will not always be great or perfect. If you reflect on life, you will come to realize that you are still standing. Somehow, some way, things always seemed to work out in our favor whether we agreed with the process or not. Most of us can say that we are truly blessed.

As we reflect, we must realize that some people around us are not quite as blessed as we are. We cannot just sit back and focus on our blessings. The bible says that we are blessed to be a blessing. Your blessing may be different from someone elseís blessing, but nevertheless, a blessing is a blessing.

If you have breath in you body, then you are blessed. There is somebody that did not wake up this morning. If you were able to walk to the kitchen and have breakfast, then you are blessed. Somebody was not as fortunate. Not only is the breakfast a blessing, but the fact that you had a roof over your head, and walked were blessings.

My heart goes out to the many people that lost loved ones over the years. I also have deep feelings for those that suffered through separation and divorce. Life has a way of teaching of many things. Sometimes we have to learn the hard way. We must think about our children.

In this computer age, we donít always appreciate some of the great relationships and connections that we have made in person. It is easy to get caught up in likes and tweets. Some of us constantly check our mobile devices to see if anyone has acknowledged a comment or response. Statistics show that self-esteem is directly related to our social media presence.

We cannot truly talk about social media without talking about our children. They seem to live in their own little world. If you need to contact your child in the next room, just text. They will get back to you.

Although times have changed drastically, one thing always remain the same. That is the love of Jesus. His love will never change. Romans 10:14 says: How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?

In your reflections, be sure to count your blessings. Do not be ashamed to tell everyone that you meet about the God that you serve. This includes your own house. It is important to communicate because sometimes the people that we are closest to are dealing with situations that require support and encouragement. You do not need to be ordained to be that voice that the Holy Spirit uses to lead and guide someone.
