A to Z Challenge: Xcitement

Before I start today's post, I just want to ask that you please pray for Damyanti and her family. A few weeks ago, her sister-in-law passed away. But that's not all. A couple of days ago, her mother-in-law was bitten by a saw-scaled viper. This is a terribly venomous snake and she's in the hospital as we speak, fighting for her life. Allergic to the anti-venom, and systems starting to fail. D asked me to spread the word as far as I can, as her mother-in-law and the family as a whole need as many prayers as they can get. Please share this message with as many people as you can. And please pray.




Excitement comes with the territory once you take charge of your life. Makes sense, if you think about it. By taking charge, you take ownership of it. Suddenly, your life has so many possibilities and you know by now that nothing is quite as impossible as you believed before.

And trying to do something you love is so much better than succeeding at something you despise. 

So life becomes exciting, even if you do the same thing every day. Your actions will have new meaning. Out of this, joy will flow. 

Enjoy it! 

Prayer


Lord, 

Today I just want to praise you for being such an amazing father. Thank You for giving me a life worth being excited about. Thank You for the bounty of blessings that you have given me. 

Thank You for the promise that life will never stop being exciting as long as I spend it as You wish me to. 

Amen.

Oh how horrible. My thoughts are with her and her family.

Excitement does come with taking new directions in one's life. But there is a fair amount of "scary," too.

I'll be mindful of D's mom.

Blessings and Bear hugs!

Oh my! I'm horrified by the news about Damyanti. I'll go and give her good wishes.
"May your life be exciting" is a Chinese curse. I like a more level life and aim for contentment. (But I'm old and weird! lol)

Thanks for sharing that payer, Misha. I saw Damyanti's appeal for prayer. I hope something changes and that her mother in law recovers.
