A Life that counts...



I'm thankful for everything he has done in my life and the lives of people he has blessed me with. He has kept me, provided, sustained, protected, shielded, delivered, guided, nurtured me through the years. I thank God for my parents, my siblings, family and friends.
On my birthday last year I wrote a piece on a life that counts. Reflecting again on this
Life is not really lived unless it counts. It does not matter how long we have lived, but a true measure of living is how it counts; The values we have created, the things we have been able to do, the lives we have touched.
Birthdays are not only to number our days but to reflect on the days and apply our heart to wisdom.
This will give you a good picture of where you are coming from,where you are and where you are going.. but most importantly knowing who God wants you to be and becoming it.
Thanks for all the prayers, the presents, the calls, sms.bbm, facebook messages, tweets...God bless you real good
Say this today: "Lord make my life count"

Well said...I read somewhere that our focus should be to a blessing unto others-career success and material things cannot/should not be our reason primary for living.
I always pray that at the end of time,may He say "well done"!

Yeah, a life that counts is all that matters. In fact, i'll go as far as to say it is the only way to achieve immortality!
