Living...

If you've been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL) over the past few weeks, you'll be aware that I've been joining my friend L and her boyfriend D, at the legion's dinner and dance each Monday.

Yesterday, was different.  I didn't join L & D.  And, I missed out on enjoying the music, watching the dancing and enjoying a meal with my friends.

For some reason, I've been having trouble with my computer, again.  I'm not a computer whiz, so I don't really know what is causing the problems I've been having.

I've upgraded everything I can think of, including my anti-virus protection.  Yet, I'm still having troubles. 

In any case, by the time I got things sorted yesterday, I realized I would be too late to arrive in time to purchase my dinner ticket at the legion.  You see, they have a 'cut off' time.  After that, you can't join them, for dinner.

Instead, I decided to cross town and go visit J, at the rehabilitation centre.  It seems he's not improving much.  Still, I try to encourage him, whenever I visit.

He's mostly laying in his bed, unable to use the left side of his body.  I've never seen him sitting up in a chair.

Sometimes, I bring him a treat, and feed it to him.  Other times, I just visit.

When I left, I prayed for him.  He wasn't snoring, but he had drifted off to sleep.

Leaving there, I did an errand and some shopping.  Then, I headed home.

Thinking about how difficult my own life has been, especially as of late, I began thinking of how I am not truly living for myself.  And, the fact that I'm living for Christ.

A Bible verse came to mind:  Galatians 2:20, "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me."

Without Jesus, I know I could not make it through a day, here on this earth.

This world is truly not my home.

Living here, is only a temporary place of existence for me.  And, there truly is not much to live for.  Except for my Lord, Jesus Christ.

How thankful I am that I have been saved!  Saved from an eternity in hell.  Saved, so that when my life ends, I can be forever in heaven, with God.

If you are not trusting in Jesus Christ for your salvation, I will not see you in heaven.  Unfortunately, you'll spend eternity in hell, separated from God.  With no chance of escape.

If you want to do this, continue on with your life, as it now exists.

If you would prefer to live forever in heaven with God, you must come to Christ.  All you need to do, is to believe upon the Lord, Jesus Christ, and you will be saved (Acts 16:31).


Until next time...
