Is there more to life?Written by jmacaulay on Aug 05, 2015 in Blog - No Comments
Work, eat, sleep, work, eat, sleep, work, eat, sleep, work, eat, sleep, work, eat, sleep, work, eat, sleep……
We never seem to have enough time; we could always do with a bit more, the days just speed past, suddenly we are another year older, there is just never enough time. All we ever seem to do is to is work, eat, sleep, work, eat sleep, it is like being stuck on a treadmill!
Perhaps there were things that we planned to do at the beginning of the year that we have not had the time to do yet, it is already August, soon it will be 2016.
When I was a child the days seemed to be so long and time appeared to pass so slowly, now as I get older the days seem to pass quickly and time just flies by. I often feel that I am controlled by time, sometimes even that time is out of control and I am rushing to catch up.
At times like that I have discovered the truth of God’s word in the book of Psalms, “Be still, and know that I am God.” The verse is not talking about intellectual knowledge but knowledge that comes by experience. It is not knowing about God but knowing God that makes the difference! The verse is speaking about having a personal relationship with God.
Perhaps you are wondering how you can have this relationship, well Jesus said, “And this is eternal life, that they might know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” Jesus also said that everyone who received Him also received the right to become one of God’s children.
Know God – Know Peace! No God – No Peace!
