How to Live Life As A Well Being

Updated on September 1, 2014

There are is no such thing as life assurance..

People buy all kind of insurance policies,home, life, health and auto, in case something happens to them. But in life there are no assurance policies to cover those moments in life when things don't go as planned.

Life is full of plans as the Bible says in James 4:13, "Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit."

But as James points out in verses 14-15 there are no gurantees, "Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that."

There is however afterlife assurance

According to 2 Timothy 1:12 there is one thing we can be assured of "For this reason I also suffer these things, but I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day..

Paul asserted he was not afraid of what came his way in life. He started out as being the heir apparent to a high position in the Jewish synagogue. he had plans for his life. God had different plans. The same is true of all believers. We may have our plans but our assurance is in knowing when this life is over we are going to stand in Heaven with God..


A short poem about life 'Give a Smile'

My life may not be—

--filled with bliss

--a wonderful delight

--times I relish

--moments of glee

But I know if—

--I focus on happiness

--look for the joy

--be of good cheer

--have a little gladness

I will be a well-being

      Thanks for always reading my words. I missed one word I see in my above comment. As a Christian I always hear the "You think you are better than me" but I know I am not. The only difference is when God called, I answered. Everyday I still do things wrong, I then go to God and tell Him what I did and ask to be forgiven. It is like a child who does something wrong and then seeks the parents forgiveness.

      The reason I wrote it is that as a Christian I always you think you are bette then me, but I try to say I am not. So I wrote this poem

      This is kind of pessimistic towards the end. Unless you've committed some of the most heinous acts in the world, and even then if you were repentant at the end God will still show mercy.

      Thanks for your wonderful comments. I write whatever comes out. Sometimes two smaller poems join together to become a complete thought

      This poem is really good. It inspires the hope that everyone can become a better person and all of our flaws can be accepted and loved too. Voted up.
