Enjoy Life

It Is Written, Proverbs 16:9, a man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.
We go through life mostly doing the things we must do. There are some occasions where we do what we enjoy. What most of us don't realize, is that regardless of what it is, there will eventually be an end to it.
Realizing that God is in control puts a different light on things. Everything in life is directed by God, based on our decision to let Him guide us. Compare God to a GPS. When we miss a turn and start going in the wrong direction, the GPS recalculates to get us back on track. God does the same thing.
Since God is in control, we can relax. If you stop and realize that everything you do with the proper attitude pleases and praises God, your must do, won't seem as hard to do. It has been said, that when you do something, do it like it was your last day. That bit of worldly advice can be taken a different way.
Enjoy everything you do to the max, because it is a gift from God. It is true anything can be the last time you do it, but that doesn't necessarily mean death. There are many reasons you stop doing certain things. If you put yourself into something with joy, and do it with all your heart, God may just present you with a new gift. His plans for you are better than anything you can come up with, and His plans lead to heaven.
One last thought. The path to heaven is long and narrow, and without the Lord's guidance we would probably get lost. So put your hope and trust in Him, and you will have peace in your heart. Have a blessed day. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You
