Everyday we go about our business and sometimes we forget to acknowledge the person who created us. have we for once stopped, and asked ourselves these questions:
Why am i still alive? is it because i did everything right.
Why do i still have my sight? is it because i looked only at the right things.
Why can i still talk or hear? is it because i say and likewise hear only Godly things.
Why can i still walk? is it because i went only to the right places.
Of course not!, of course we are sinners and we never do anything right, we don't hear,see, say or even smell the right things.
the world we live in is full of temptation and evil but the only reason we are still alive is by his grace, the only reason we can still see,hear, talk or walk is by the mercy of God and not because we did anything right.
I was in church today and i saw a beautiful woman with two luvly kids, she was there with are husband as well, but there she was in a wheelchair passionely listening to the word of God i looked at my self and thought, am i better than she is? am i more righteous than she? but here i was, sitting down because i felt i was too tired to stand up.then a thought came into my head, God gave me these legs, he is the only reason why i still have them, why cant i use it to serve him. i also thought wont this lovely woman give anything to be on her feet just for a split second. And then i knew am not better or more righteous its just by his grace and nothing more.
By his grace we sleep every night and wake up without any problem
By his grace we go out everyday without encountring any problem
By his grace we can still user all of our body parts
By his grace we are still among the living
So everyday when we wake up we should thank the lord for his goodness to us and to our family because without him we are lost.
