Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

at the end of life

“Everyone has to die once, then face the consequences. Christ’s death was also a one-time event, but it was a sacrifice that took care of sins forever. And so, when he next appears, the outcome for those eager to greet him is, precisely, salvation.” Hebrews 9:27-28 (MSG)

 
Thinking of and praying for the Bush family as they grieve the loss of their wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.
 
Here are a couple quotes from Barbara Bush.
 
 
“At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.” told to the graduating class at Wellesley College 1990.
 
Here is another quote of hers.
 
“Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success will be how you treat other people — your family, friends, and coworkers, and even strangers you meet along the way,”
 
What is it that you want to be known for?
First and foremost I want people to remember that I loved God and loved people.
 
til next time

i am content

A prayer I pray often is:
“Lord make me more like You. Help me to love like You love. Help me to get me out of the way so nothing hinders You from flowing through me.”

Growing in godliness – becoming more and more like Jesus.

“Godliness with contentment is great gain.”

Sometimes the things of this world can obscure our vision, clutter our lives, or become a weight that drags us down. We are told to keep our eyes on Jesus (Hebrews 12) and yet things are constantly pulling at us.

Our focus may no longer be clear. The more out of focus we become, the more screwed up we become.

“A devout life does bring wealth, but it’s the rich simplicity of being yourself before God. Since we entered the world penniless and will leave it penniless, if we have bread on the table and shoes on our feet, that’s enough.” 1 Timothy 6:6-8 (MSG)

It is said that the more things you ‘own’ – the more things that ‘own’ you. If I want to be totally devoted to Christ (and I do) then keeping ‘things’ in perspective is important. I don’t need more stuff. I need more of Jesus and less of me. (John 3:30)1 tim 6 6

Blessed beyond measure,

til next time
