Today Reminder – 08 July 2016

 A reminder for today
Don't you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. (1 Corinthians 9:24-25)

We are going to a funeral today and it made me think once again about life and how short it is. I realised again that time goes by so quickly and before you know it your life has passed. Therefore, I believe that we should treasure every moment and every relationship and every friendship. We should take more time to spend with God and in His presence and we should live with joy and freedom just like the Lord wants us to be. We should understand and give more and we should take time and listen to other. Spend more time with friends and family and seek the Lord every day.

It is a race as Paul describes it here and we should run the race of life with determination and focus to win the prize and spend eternity with the Lord. We should open our hearts and minds to His Word and meditate more on the wisdom of the Word of God.

So today I want you to listen and give more of your time to God. Call your friends and family and see them more often. Social media has stolen our intimate relationships and we should protest against that and defeat the enemy in his mission to make us stand alone. We should be with the people in our lives and we should stand by them through every challenge motivating and helping.

Lord, today I pray for all the people in our lives. I pray that you will forge new friendships and mend broken ones. I pray that you will bless current relationships and fill our hearts with your love towards those that loves us so much. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
