“You Just Keep on Living and Just Keep Getting Up Each Morning”
“You Just Keep On Living” how many times have you heard those words? If an individual has been attentive to those words understanding the full importance of its meaning it has brought wisdom. We have lived and learned that wisdom comes in many forms but the best learned is .that which has been experienced. I once heard the difference between a wise man and a fool is that a wise man learns from his mistakes while a fool continues to make the same mistakes over and over.
We have learned it was our merciful God who allowed us to see another day after day, year after year. We have become living testimonies of those prophetic and revelatory words “Just Keep on Living.” We have learned that everything must change; that nothing or no one stays the same BUT God and His Holy Word.
Genesis 1:1 teaches us that everything has a beginning except God. “In the beginning, when there was nothing, only One was living. That One was God. Only He existed in the beginning and He was His Word. God is the Lord of Eternity. God is vast and has no equal! He has no beginning and no end. He has no needs or limits. God is spirit and can be everywhere at once. He is above everything and everyone. He fills everything. He sees everything. He knows everything. He is unique. He is matchless. God is sole and sovereign! That is why the Holy Scriptures say, "He alone is immortal and lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever! Amen!" (1 Tim. 6:16) “(Quoted)
If we have been blessed to “just keep getting up each morning” we have learned God will meet us at our needs when we are obedient to His words of instructions. We have learned that we can take our hopes and our prayers to the altar of grace and He will be there. Whether this lesson was passed down in our family from generation to generation or it was taught by some God-sent person we have learned a priceless lesson and received a precious gift. We who seek to live better by being better have learned that the book of Proverbs is given for instructions of how to live in the prosperity of God’s goodness. It is not only our duty but our privilege to teach this insight to the young and old.
What is important is to feed our youth’s inner man each day with God’s word and by living an exemplary lifestyle before them.
As I stated earlier in this message everything must change; nothing stays the same BUT God and His Holy Word. Every young generation has had to face growing up in a world of calamity worse than the generation before them. Today is no different with youth on youth violence, gangs, drugs, teen pregnancies and suicide. Today as before each generation expresses its identity in their unique way in the natural, reflecting their environment. It is expressed in their style of dress, music and dance, even in the manner they speak. It is so easy for some to forget that they were once young. The uneasy learning process that comes with self-awareness, discovering who you are and who you are to God. (Must See Dance Video #2)
