Daily Devotional – 2/5/15 “Live, just because!”

As Saints of Gods, we don’t have to be stuck up and dry. You do know that we are living, right? I mean, every now and then I need to remind you to just live because you can forget to do that in the hustle and bustle of life. We get so caught up in the stress of paying bills, in raising children, in working, in trying to stay healthy or get healthy that we actually forget about simply living. When was the last time you took a day off, just because? When was the last time you slept in, just because? When was the last time you stopped and let out a breath, just because? When was the last time you took yourself out to dinner, just because? When was the last time you had a glass of wine, a nice bath, listened to some music or the quietness of nothing to relax yourself; just because? When was the last time you did anything, just because? Do you not realize that you are living? I know in the repetition of our day-to-day lives we can sometimes forget about things but we also forget about ourselves. How many can say, I didn’t even eat today and by the time you remember it’s dinner time?

Yes, this is a Christian devotional and someone is waiting on me to share a word from the Lord but somebody on today needs to be reminded to live. That’s all I am doing. See, we’ve gotten so accustomed to worrying about stuff that we shouldn’t even have our hands in and days that haven’t even come yet when the bible says in Matthew 6:34, “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” We cry over stuff that has already happened and that’s stuff we can no longer control yet we can control what happens next but we won’t get up. Why not? We’ve been hurt before but we still live in that hurt instead of moving from that address into new property where pain no longer resides even though the rent is free. Why? And this point I’ll throw in free … Ladies, young and old; the single status you keep posting on social media is only drawing the thirsty boys not the husband God is preparing for you. He knows you’re single. Stop posting it! Live your life preparing for your husband and preparing to be found by your husband and you will be. Stop posting that you’re single and them boys will stay out of your inbox.

Live just because you are alive! Live just because God has allowed you another blessed opportunity! Don’t take it for granted because you may not get another chance.
