Life is a Gift

Take five second seconds, close your eyes and place your hand over your heart.

Feel that?

That’s a miracle beating inside of you.

Just think, there is nothing you have done or can ever do to control the beating of your heart.

Of course, we can run, jump, get excited or afraid and notice the change in the pace of our heartbeats, but one thing is for sure, we ultimately have no control over the job of our hearts.

And this, indeed, is a miracle.

It is a constant reminder that we are not in complete control. It’s also a reminder of our mortality.

As intelligent as we humans are, we lack control of more than we think.

And if we let it, we can allow something as simple as our heartbeats be our daily reminder that our Heavenly Father holds our very lives in the palm of His hands.

Each day you wake and feel the beating of your heart, let that be a reminder that you are loved and cared for.

Let it remind you that your life is precious.

Let it remind you that your life is a gift.
