So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children.Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” – Romans 8:15
Do you find yourself living in fear? Fear is such a real challenge in any life, but in the life faced with chronic illness, fear takes on a life of its own.
We are so much more attuned to our frailties. We are more aware of our boundaries and limitations. We are so much more conscious of death racing at us with the speed of an oncoming train. Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute… aware that each one could be our last.
But oh, friends, what a blessing we have been given. You see, for everyone who shares this spinning ball with us, each moment could be the last. But most are completely unaware. They go about their days oblivious to the moments they are missing, the memories they are wasting, and the opportunities that are presented to them each day.
Grab hold of your gift. Don’t let another moment pass you by. You have the honor of being aware of the fleeting nature of our life here. Make every memory count. Use every opportunity to its fullest. Don’t miss a single thing.
And don’t forget to thank God for the awareness. Turn that fear right on its ear by making it the biggest blessing of your day. Twist the shape of it til it’s unrecognizable as anything but a privilege. Make each moment count and count each moment on a breath of gratitude.
Heavenly King, Thank You for your blessings that sometimes come in disguise. Help us to never embrace fear. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
