Your Life is like the Morning Fog

Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone!

Life is valuable and ever so precious. It is a gift from God the creator of human beings, the earth, sun, moon, and stars in the galaxies.

When we woke up this morning, it becomes a day of purpose and meaning of what will we do this day and how will we conduct ourselves.

Will we love others or be hateful, jealous, or angry? Will we be honest in all our business dealings and relationships in our work, family, or friendships, or become so arrogant because of the things that we possess, the knowledge that we possess, or the money in our stocks or bank accounts?

Do you have plans for today or several months from now?
How easy it is to get caught up with the everyday routines of life. We’re not guaranteed the next hour! The world witnessed a tragedy two years ago how nine people died in a helicopter crash in Los Angeles. Although one was a sports icon Kobe Bryant a celebrity, every life was valuable in the eyes of God. Life was snatched away in the midst of the fog, in this case literally. May the Lord strengthen and help each grieving family, relatives, friends for this sad tragedy.

“Look here, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we are going to a certain town or city and will stay there a year. We will do business there and make a profit.” How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.”
James 4:13‭-‬15 NLT

Ask yourself what the Lord wants in your life, rather than what you and I want in this life. You may be retired or close to it, but the Lord may have different plans for you to make an influence in our society and culture.

I know this is not a popular decision in a self centered egotistical culture, but ask yourself, what does God want for you today? Do you desire to please the Lord and walk in His way or are you going to be caught up in making a living and not living a full life. There are times when the fog distorts our vision to see what’s ahead.

If God asked you to change your career or sell your business, and give up your dream to follow Him will you do it? Taking up the cross of Christ is no easy decision, but it’s rewards and benefits are out of this world. Literally!

It doesn’t get any more radical and cut across our culture when Jesus said;
“If anyone comes after me, let him/her deny themselves, take up their cross, and follow me.”

Walk softly this week my friend and let’s become more aware of our surroundings and listen to what God is saying to you.

Greetings! My name is Andy Provitola and I live in New England on the south shore between Boston and the beautiful Cape Cod region. The purpose of my blogging and writing is to encourage you in your journey here on planet earth. Life is full of pressing issues and problems and my desire is to discover a place for peace, hope, healing, and contentment. I am a follower of Jesus Christ – God’s one and only Son of God and discovered these truths along my own personal journey. Having discovered a personal relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ does not mean I have to be religious to attain the rewards of heaven. The fact is God provides grace for us and accepts us as we are in His image. In other words, we cannot attain heaven or life eternal on our own, but by God’s loving grace and no merit of our own. My goal is to continue to find a balance of life from a spiritual and practical perspective with a purpose to please and glorify God in all that I do because of His ‘Gift of Grace’. God is not transcendent and so far away that he is out of reach with humanity. God desires that His presence lives within us and not just in the galaxies and the universe. Experiencing the unconditional love of God has been so rewarding and while discovering the truth and purpose for my life. Moving forward in this life is not a sprint, but a marathon when it comes to this race here on earth. I am blogging because I find it is a good way to connect in a much more effective and efficient way when it comes to communicating and interacting with with people that I do not know. Blogging and writing challenges me and also stretches me specifically in my thoughts, my mind, my emotions, and my spiritual life to live a vertical relation with God and a horizontal relationship with others. There will be a variety of topics and subjects to address including youth, young adults, family, singles, seniors, relationships, etc. Some of the topics will include God’s creation and power, depression, loneliness, suicide, hope, healing, setbacks, financial matters, business, stress, anxiety, care, encouragement, and so much more I would like to connect with all walks of life, ethnicity, culturally, other religions, socio-economics, and more I am currently writing a book and several memoirs about my own life and journey . The journey begins at a young age growing up in Malden, Massachusetts, specifically Maplewood Square to where I am today. I became paralyzed from the waist down as a senior in high school and I share how my life changed for the better! “But I do not consider my life as something of value or dear to me, so that I may [with joy] finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus. To testify faithfully of the good news of God’s [precious undeserved] grace [which makes us free of guilt of sin and grants us eternal life]. Acts 20:24 Amplified Version
