Life Is What You Make It!
"Life is what you make it!" I have heard this saying a lot and do believe that it's really true! Although, our lives do not really belong to us, totally, but to God, still, God has given us the precious gift of Life and each, new day to make the very best of it and ourselves!
God has given us all that we need to truly fulfill our life's purpose and reach our deepest dreams! He gives us the unending gift of His Love, His Grace, His Light, and the gift of our Faith. With Faith in God... all things are possible, (according to God's perfect will for our lives). God also gives us His Holy Spirit to guide us, lead us and even pray for us, when we don't know what to pray for.
It may seem quite easy to make the best of our lives when things are going wonderfully and smoothly for us, though, when times are difficult, challenging and even painful and frustrating... how do we go about making the best of our lives, when we may feel overcome by the unfortunate circumstances in our lives?
I believe that it's then when we have to rely on God and trust in Him all the more. We need His Grace and strength in these times, more than ever, to truly grow through our circumstances and deepen our Faith and Christian character. In these times we need to remember this amazingly powerful verse from Sacred Scripture: "I Can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me!" (Philippians 4:13).
Jesus Christ came into this world so that we might have Life and have it more abundantly! How often do we forget this? Christ wants us to truly lives blessed, happy, healthy, good, beautiful abundant lives... and He is truly with us and within us to help us do so!
So, to make the very best of our lives and ourselves... we must simply, at all times, rely on and trust in God and in Christ to give us His Grace to help make this possible! We can create our lives to be a beautiful masterpiece for God, (with His help and the help of Christ), and what a perfect, "Thank You gift," to God... to say, "Thank you, for giving me the precious gift of Life... here's my offering of gratitude to you in return!"
May we always live our live for God, always aiming to please Him in all we do... and may we always rely deeply on the Grace of God and Christ to help see us through to our brightest days... truly making our lives and ourselves the most beautiful masterpieces possible! :)
