Thankful Thursday Life

How do I spend my life that was given to me? Do I make a difference in someone’s life? Do I live life for myself; for others? Do I live my life fully for Him, in Him?
Wow, talk about eye opening questions.
I hope & pray that I am spending my life the way God would see fit. I know I could do better in certain areas of my life and God is changing those as we speak. As I look back I have had some ruff patches in my life but if God wasn’t there to help me pick up the pieces I don’t know where I would be. The Lord has always kept me going and I thank Him all the time for breathing life into me.
I believe we all make a difference in peoples life some tell us how we have influenced their life and others keep it to themselves. I feel that everyday we should wake up and ask ourselves and God how I can make a difference in someone’s life today. It could be a phone call, a card, email, a smile, a simple “hello”, cleaning there house when they can’t, or even bringing some one cookies and telling them you were on my mind. Showing God’s love can sometimes be hard because we don’t want to offend them but what we need to realize as Christians is love bears all things.
I use to live my life for me when I was being rebellious but what I realized was no more was I hurting myself but others who loved me too. I now with lots of prayer and love I live for others, I don’t like seeing people hurting. So I pray for God’s mercy and grace for others to lean on the Lord and seek comfort in His loving arms.

I like the idea of asking God for the direction of who I can help every morning! Have a happy TT.

These are hard questions. I think it is valuable if we stop periodically and reevaluate, see where we are at and where we'd like to be in these areas.

Have a good day.

Great post! I love that you're examining your life and seeing how you're measuring up. I am doing the same. I pray that I am living a life that honors God and pray for more of a servant's heart to bless those around me. Happy Thankful Thursday!

You are certainly a different person than you used to be. You father and I are very proud of you. We can certainly see God's handiwork but most of all your willingness to be used of God for His service. Thank you for all you do for your family and for our Lord. I love you,
