So, Why Do We Live This Life?

Psalm 19:7-11

7 The law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul.
The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.

8 The precepts of the LORD are right,
giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the LORD are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.

9 The fear of the LORD is pure,
enduring forever.
The ordinances of the LORD are sure
and altogether righteous.

10 They are more precious than gold,
than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
than honey from the comb.

11 By them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.

So, Why Do We Live this Life?

Every Child of God asks themselves that question once, twice or maybe many times in their journey. There is so much going on in life. It can get complicated so fast. It's easy to to find yourself in a place where it makes more sense to question than to have faith.

But in the midst of all of it...kids, jobs, family, money, relationships,...God is still God.

He doesn't change. The Psalm reminds us that His law is perfect, and it revives the soul. It says His precepts bring joy to the heart and light to darkness.

Could you use some light? Some joy? A revived spirit?

So, whatever 'it' is for you...whatever 'it' is that's making your life complicated...whatever is driving the questions, the answer begins, ends and is filled with God. Apart from Him, that really is darkness you're feeling.

So, Why Do We Live this Life? Re-read the verses. That's why. Still not convince? Here's the rest of the story...

John 3:16

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
