Life Can Change in A Instant

Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
~ Proverbs 27:1~

This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
~ John 15:12 ~

Hello friends. Thank you for your kindness and prayers. I appreciate you! {{hugs}}. It’s a beautiful thing to let people know that we care. Glory to God. Life can change in an instant.

I don’t think anyone is ever prepared for the loss of those we know and love. Recently, I’ve come to realized that tears are a blessings too. Life can change in an instant.

Sometimes, loss has a way of putting what’s important, in our life, in perspective. Life can change in an instant.

Things and stuff, or X, Y and Z moments can really be put in perspective when you realize it is, what it is. Let it go. Life can change in an instant.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone. Life can change in an instant.

Love and forgiveness comes from within our hearts. Love and forgiveness are essential in maintaining life in our relations. Life can change in an instant.

Sometimes, we must keep showing love until those, in our life, see Jesus within us. Many times, we judge what we don’t know or understand. Sometimes, we just don’t know any better until Jesus shows us how. Life can change in an instant.

To maintain life, in our relations, start celebrating the positive qualities, forget the past and appreciate what each bring to the table. Life can change in an instant.

Life is too precious to waste holding stuff that keeps us from loving and forgiving one another. Life can change in an instant.

God is the only one who can be all things to each and everyone of us. Even if we speak, Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me, we are not equipped to handle every single need. That role is designed for God. Give it all to Him.

Blessings, my friends, by faith, as we learn to maintain life in our relations. Life can change in an instant.

Life Can Change In An Instant

Hello friends (smile) Life can change in an instant. I’ve shared before about my friends, the Two Musketeers. (smile) Yesterday, going to lunch with a friend, we had a car accident. Out of no where, an emergency siren was blaring behind us and two cars in front of us slammed on the brakes.

Here is the beautiful thing about faith and having a trusting relationship with God. No words were spoken by either of us. No fear was present either. I tensed my body for the impact and my friend calmly turned the wheel to the left to avoid hitting the cars in front of us, only to be hit by a driver behind us. There were a few seconds, we could not think of the next step, and we refused to speak the wrong things. So we called out, God help us. God showed how mighty He was when the Third Musketeer called with the next step. Praise The Lord.

Praise The Lord, no one was hurt and no significant damage was done to the cars involved. The blessing was God’s protection and His presence with us at the moment of impact. This was at a busy intersection and by the grace of God, we realized, it could have been worst. Thank you God for walking us through!

After the police report was done, my friend choose to get back on the horse (driving without fear) as she called it. We continued on with our plans for the day. We both kept praising and thanking God. We talked about how God can work out all things and how blessed we are. We were grateful. (smile)

Many times, when things happen, our first response is to ask why or lose perspective on what’s really important and start speaking the wrong things into existence. Yes, life brings challenges. Yes, life has ups and downs. Yes, things and stuff happens, whether saved or not.

It’s all part of living and walking by faith and trusting God.

Focus on the positive qualities of people and situations to fully realize that life can change in an instant. Sometimes, we focus too much on the “cannot” and the negative instead of the “can” and the positive. (smile)

Be blessed and live life for today. (smile) As always, your comments are welcome. (smile)
