The Scripture reads, "One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek Him in his temple. For in the day of trouble He will keep me safe in His dwelling; He will hide me in the shelter of His sacred tent and set me high upon a rock. Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at His sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD. Hear my voice when I call, LORD; be merciful to me and answer me".

As I recently celebrated getting wiser another year this March of 2021, I began to reflect on the goodness of God, His grace, and His mercy over my life. I have over a half of million reasons immediately that I can think of to be grateful for. In 2020, over 500,000 people, around the world, lost their lives to COVID 19. Additionally, in 2020, over 10,000,000 lost their lives to various forms of cancer. Over 16,000 people died in car accidents alone in the United States in 2020. Many more people lost their lives in various and unexpected ways. But yet, I am still here.

So why this particular scripture today Monica? I am undeserving to still walk this earth day by day. There were times when I didn't love myself, but God loved me. There were days I wanted to quit and fell into depression, but God did not quit on me and nursed me back to life. There were times I stopped believing in the power of God, but God never stopped believing in me. I should have been dead and gone a long time ago, but I am still here. So as long as I have breath in my body, I will forever chase after God. It is my sincerest goal to live this life so that I may live again. Scripture says in 2 Corinthians 5:8, "We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord".

What does this mean exactly? As Christians we believe living a life pleasing to God and through the vital acceptance of His Son Jesus Christ, when we die physically, our soul sleeps, until His return for us to take us back to our eternal Heavenly home. And to live this life as God commanded us to live, we are forever seeking a truly significant lifestyle of righteousness and holiness. So the above referenced scripture expressed my deeply spiritual walk with my relationship with God and Jesus Christ.

I no longer desire material things, possessions, cars, houses, money, and overall, temporary things. Instead, my heart is set on living to live an eternal life. Do I enjoy pleasures of this life? Absolutely. But instead, my mind is focused on prioritizing God first, and I know everything else will follow as it says in, Matthew 6:33, "But seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well".

Father in the name of Jesus, I pray for every person reading this who also made it into 2021. Father God I praise You for allowing me to be here another year and to see another day. Father God I know that if I am still here, there is more for me to do. Father God decrease me so that You may have the increase in my life. Father God I pray peace, favor, and blessings today over every reader and that they may also seek relationship with You God, through your Son, Jesus the Christ.

It's in Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
