Life lessons for the new year
Happy New Year! Christmas was wonderful, but not it is time for a new beginning. We are entering a new room in our lives and we are on the verge of a new adventure. It’s time for a new beginning. Accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative and make your life count! Life is too short to dwell on anything negative. When God gives you blessings, appreciate them. Don’t take anything for granted. Be all that you can be every day and you will be a happier person.
Do you have a dream? Today is the day to ful-fill that dream. There are seeds of greatness in each one of us. Let them shine! Now is the time.
Every day, as you get older, give away something because you can’t take it with you. Eliminate all addictions, including the one of procrastination, which sometimes keeps us in a state of limbo.
In this life forgive and forget, then pray for your enemies. Never want revenge; that’s for the Lord to handle as it’s too big for us. Surely get rid of any addiction that’s messing up your body. Your body has to last as long as you do.
Life is short and we need to make each day count, as you only pass this way once. Life is like a boomerang; whatever you give out comes back to you.
Beginning hundreds of years ago, people began predicting when the end of the world would come. One of them predicted the end of the world would be August 15, 1945, the day the first atom bomb fell.
Ancient tribes and others, all from different parts of the earth and different time periods, came up with December 23, 2012. However, don’t worry about it too much, as there is nothing you can do about it except be prepared.
The only thing that matters on this earth is what you do for Jesus. When you stand before the judgment throne of God, he’ll ask you, “What did you do for Me while you were on earth?” He already knows the answer, truth and all, so prepare to meet your Maker.
The insurance policy for being sure we will get to Heaven is to know that Jesus will be our partner and get us there. Then pass Him on to your family, your neighbors, everybody you know. If you don’t, they may never know the good news of Jesus.
It’s up to you to tell them.
