STILL ALIVE!

Psalm 118:24       This is the very day God acted— let’s celebrate and be festive!

 

Whenever Olivia’s mummy left her alone with her grandpa, they always had fun.  Thing is though Olivia was a bit clumsy and her grandpa was rather old, so playtime together wasn’t always safe.  Olivia didn’t mind though, she still had a good time and when Mummy asked how she was doing, Olivia always said with a smile; “Still alive!”

I know you’ve heard the verse in psalm 118:24 before. In other versions it reads;

“This is the day that the lord has made;

Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

Some days there isn’t much to get excited about.  In fact some days you kind of wish everyone and everything would just disappear.  I get it; life can truly suck.  Being a Christian doesn’t change that.  What it does do though is make it bearable.  There is just so much God does for us; some things we ask for and others He gives us just because he wants to.  The most important thing He has given us is eternal life with Him through His Son Jesus Christ.

No matter how hopeless life seems there is an eternal hope for you!  I don’t know about you, but that does make me want to dance a bit
