Sometimes its take a major illness or catastrophe for us to get closer to God. We do not use our own strength we use the strength of God to enrich our soul. Some people our connected to God by reading daily devotions and praising God for the many blessings in their life. A friend reminded me to mention this.
When we are strong and well we tend to live or get by with our own strength. We are on automatic pilot and the true pilot in our life is God. God is the one that can save your soul. Thank God everyday for your health, family, friends and for giving you your first breath of life and each and every breath you take while you are on Earth.
Keep the sabbath day by reading your Bible, attending church, watching a church service on TV or on a social media platform. Thank God for the week you had and how he blessed your life. Observe nature and its beauty that God made for all of us to enjoy. Spend time with friends and family on Sunday and think of how lucky you are to have each other in your life.
When I was sick I got closer to God as he was my strength and my refuse. God gave me strength to endure and took my life in a new direction. I became a lay minister at my church and I visit with people in the rest home or assisted living. I love visiting with them and we enrich each others life in many wonderful and outstanding ways. I enjoy writing Inspirations with Laura and sharing them with others.
Do not live on automatic pilot as it will only take you so far in life. God is our pilot and our guide to a religious life that will strengthen and save our soul for its final journey to Heaven.
Hebrews 4 : 12
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing, even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Galatians 1 : 3
Grace be to you and peace from God the Father and from our Lord Jesus Christ
