Carpe Diem

Ecclesiastes 3:1-2,4
There is an appointed time for everything, and a time for every affair under the heavens. A time to be born, a time to die; a time to plant, a time to uproot the plant. A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.

Life is a gift with a broad spectrum of experiences that will all lead us to wholeness…if we allow ourselves to be present to each experience. For when we are present to each moment…we are already whole! Be open to how God is at work in these experiences. Life is a journey of ups and downs. You can’t have the mountaintops without the valleys. What is the main struggle that you are dealing with now? If it is death or hardship…bring it to the foot of the cross where Jesus is waiting to suffer with you. If it is a time of joy…bring it to the Resurrected Christ to celebrate. Pray with Him in the Garden of Gethsemane and dance with Him at the wedding at Cana. The One who said He was “the way, the truth and the life” will lead you to the fullness of life here and now…and for eternity.
