Jesus met a woman who had five husbands and she was presently living with a man who was not her husband. During their conversation, he told her she could drink of living water and would never thirst again. “A well springing up within to eternal life.(Jn.4:10,14)  A man whose life was ending as he hung on a cross next to Jesus. In that moment, he asked Jesus to remember him as Christ entered his kingdom.  His request was granted that he would be that very day in paradise with the Lord. (Luke 23:40-43).

You may not have the extreme lifestyle mentioned above. It may seem rather “Humdrum”.  I believe there are many people who consider themselves insignificant; therefore never reach out to find and know Christ, or let their lives be used by him for eternal purposes . Do you know that God knows the number of hairs on your head.  He knows every time you get up and sit down. The Lord is  acquainted with all your ways. (Ps.139)

Before God your life truly counts; it has value!  No matter who you are or what you have done,  God has a plan for your life that will bring forth eternal benefits. I was challenged many years ago; “Make yourself available.”  As I took that challenge wonderful opportunities opened up for me to know Christ in a real way. Don’t look only at your inabilities, but look to a God that wants the best for you. Because he loved you, he has made the best for you possible..     

No matter how old you are; how many mistakes you have made; what abilities you do or don’t have, God is looking for you to trust him, put your life in his hands. He will make himself real.  Your life will be count for this life and the next.
