The Gift of Life: A Guest Post by Addie

Do you ever feel useless? Like your life doesn’t mean anything? Like you aren’t making an impact on the world in the slightest bit? Well, let me reassure you: you are not alone in that. Most everyone feels that way at some point or another in their lives. It is normal to feel like that sometimes, but don’t dwell on it. The Bible reminds us in Philippians 4:8 to think on things that are true. Thinking that you are pointless, my friend, is most definitely not true.

If you are a Christian, you have a specific and extremely important calling. The Bible tells us to go into all nations and tell people about Jesus. The Bible also makes it abundantly clear in
1 Thessalonians 4:3 that the will of God for our lives is to become more like Jesus. We have a purpose in life. We have a reason to live. There is a beautiful song that is an amazing reminder of this truth. It is called “So I Can Love” by one of my favorite groups: Shane and Shane! Go listen to this song!


If blood is runnin’ through
If I’ve been given another day
If I can open my eyes
There’s gotta be a reason why In the morning when I wake up If there’s air fillin’ up my lungs
If I’m still alive
There’s gotta be a reason why And oh, if my heart’s still beating It’s only so I can
Love the Lord my God
With all my heart


This song is an incredible reminder of the beauty and gift of life. How amazing is it that every day when we wake up we know that we have a Savior in heaven that loves us unconditionally. He loves us so much that he died on the cross for our sins when he was completely sinless. He came to earth to be a humble servant and die a sinner’s death. We have so much to be thankful for and to live for. So, fellow Believer, remember that you do have a reason to get out of bed every morning. You do have someone who loves you and who will never leave you behind.
With Love, Addie
