One Month To Live.

So, we have been doing the one month to live series at church, and in big church I got a book mark that gave you a verse to read each day for your one month to live to kind of make you think about things in a new way.. so I am going to just write the ones that we have had so far.. I don't know if you have gotten them yet.. so this might help you out too, they have given me inspiration for each tomorrow.
ONE MONTH TO LIVE? What would you do if you knew your last day was on February 28th 2010, how would you life your life until then?
Day One: Psalms 90:12
"Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom."
Day Two: Romans 12:11
"Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically."
Day Three: 2 Corinthians 6:1
"As Gods partners, we beg you not to accept this marvelous gift of God's kindness and the ignore it"
Day Four: Matthew 11:28-29
"Then Jesus said, 'Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will five you rest. Take my yoke upon you. let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.'"
Day Five: 2 Timothy 1:7
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline"

So there you have it:
There is a brevity of life, we should live enthusiastically, and not just for ourselves but for our devine maker. If we choose to accept God's gift of life, we shall not waste it. God will give us an ending to our sorrows, and make our weary hearts smile, and he gave us power, love and sel discipline.. not fear.
Just within these days there is so much that I need to work on.. living enthusiastically, I would like to say that I do that everyday.. but I know that I don't and I know that sometimes I could be living for more. My big thing though, is fear.. you know as well as I know that I am scared of a lot of things.. heights, clowns, sharks, the ocean, planes.. just to name a few. But God says that I shouldn't be, because he gives so much beauty, and it all comes from him.. so what shall I fear other than him.. not his beautiful creations.. so much to change in my life.. so much to change for my one month left.
