Bucket List

I have a serious post today, It was  a serious though that I woke up with. I hope it is one you will consider and reflect on.

Recently on Facebook I read two posts both by friends ( real friends - people that I have a real relationship with - not "friends" I have logged into a box)  The first one was " 15 things people wished they had spent more time doing before they died.  Now that seems a little fishy because in order for it to be accurate, the reporter would have to have been having conversations with the Dead.

The Second post was some of my other friends talking about what was on their "Bucket Lists"

Now I want to tell you, I love life, I have a totally awesome marriage, great family that I enjoy, friends who love me most of the time, fruit and veggies on the table every day- I am thankful.  I am not a stoic who eats cold oatmeal every day and waits for the grimm reaper.  
That being said I want to say this.

With the first posting not one Christian that commented on this mentioned they would like to spend more time in a relationship with the Lord, more time reading the Word of Life, more time spreading the gospel .

And this bucket list thing-  I get it , there are things people want to do and maybe should do them, but not if it means neglecting their soul.   

My point is this the Adversary of our soul would distract us from that which brings life, 

 Relationship with Jesus and The Word of God

It say in Luke: It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. 

Be Careful of your soul, you are investing in your eternity here and now. 
Don't be distracted by the temporal events and promises of this life -whether it is work or play!
Walk with God and you Life will be blessed.  Know Him and you will have Peace and Joy.

I digitized two scriptures for today for you to use.

You are a light house to those in darkness. Turn up your lamp let the Word light the way!
Thanks for stopping by

Wonderful words. We get caught up in what we think we need to do and want to do that we omit the very things God wants us to do. As I get older, I am re-evaluating my life and praying to be more like the Master with His help and direction. Sometimes it means taking time that I want to spend doing things I want to do and using that time for what He wants. Thank you for bring these thoughts to us to help us in our walk with the Lord and for being such an excellent example of following Him. <3 <3
Ah dear Ginny God's word is a clear and shining light for our path each day. "He must increase I must decrease as John the Baptist said and this is my daily prayer. Truly it is so easy to be caught up in the toil of the world and the ploys of Satan. May we never lose our Focus - looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith". Hugs Shaz in Oz.x
