A Meaningful Life
All too often, the real meaning of life, and of course being a believer, is GREATLY overlooked. We get caught up in our performance and how we are perceived by others. That brings me to the question of, where does that get me? Will the approval of onlookers leave me satisfied with my situation? Will an overflowing closet give me peace and overwhelming joy in life, even when times are tough? I'm gonna venture to say...NO! No matter how much I have, or how much people like me, I'm left feeling empty. Left feeling like it will never be enough.
That brings me to my point, this life is to be lived in LOVE. Cheese ball, right?!! But seriously, we are creatures that are created to love. We thrive on affection. Be honest, when we're not feeling loved, we are having a no good, crumby day!! That is where our amazing creator comes in. He, even though not visible to the eye, is always there with His arms WIDE open! We just need to be willing to receive.
Another thing that I feel compelled to point out is, there is not one person that is perfect or deserving of this love. There is a reason it is unconditional! What an exhilarating notion!!!! This means that it doesn't matter what I've done, or where I've been, He's still there - loving me! We all know that I'm a piece of work... I'll say it again, my life is less than "IDEAL" on so many levels! And it is especially no where near worthy of having the God of the universe love me! I don't know how you feel about that. It is SO not my place to judge, but I know for sure that once you allow the love of God to really wash over you, life feels that much more meaningful! Live a life of love! It is absolutely worth it!
Until Next Time, angela
