The Good Life that God has Given Me
Arriving home just now and walking into an empty house, I found myself meditating with simple thanks that God has given me a good life to live, and I am thankful for this. He has given me a good life for the living.
I found myself walking to the train station today singing hymns quietly to myself with a sense of gratitude for the cool air on my skin and the silence occasionally punctured by screeching trains along the tracks.
I had a good family growing up.
I was given an experience of true love… not the romantic kind yet, but a deep family of loving Christians in San Luis Obispo. And I saw a revival in action in that place. Not many have experienced that.
I have now felt true pain and loneliness, and on the other side of it, life is the sweeter and my joy double-rebounded from knowing it.

  1. When we think we have a grip on God’s plan for our lives then He shows us that we are wrong. His goal is always for us to have a deeper walk with Him. The depth of our walk grows with the acknowledgment of our own fault and mis-perceptions. We can learn by facing those faults or we can ignore them and stay at a crossroad until we learn but either way God loves us too much to let us stay the same. I’ve found that His love is ALWAYS the answer. If we err it should always be in His love. May God continue to show you His love in ways unexpected and quite overwhelmingly. May you accept His direction and enter into a journey of Love that only God could orchestrate. I.H.S. Bob Wilson
