HOW DO YOU SEE LIFE? LEARN FROM MATTIE STEPANEK!

Basic Scripture: Job 2:8-10; 1 Thessalonians 5:15-18

How do you see life? Take a look at the “innocent” lines below, from a 13 year-old boy, Mattie Stepanek:
“I want people to know that in every life, there are storms. But we must remember to play after every storm and to celebrate the gift of life as we have it, or else life becomes a task, rather than a gift. We must always listen to the song in our hearts and share the song with others.”

This boy, Mattie Stepanek had a rare form of the disease, Muscular Dystrophy (Mitochondrial Myopathy and Dystonia) which meant his breathing, heart rate, body temperature, oxygenation, digestion, etc, were not automatic! In his own case, HE USED EXTRA OXYGEN ALL THE TIME, and when tired or sleeping, he used a ventilator that breathed for him, saved energy and moved his medical equipment around.

In the midst of all these, Mattie saw life as a gift! when he had the opportunity of chatting on the phone with former US President Jimmy Carter from his hospital bed, his focus was on the problems then in Eastern European countries like Bosnia and the African continent, not his health condition. If you and I had such an opportunity, well your guess is as good as mine.

In this second half of 2019, if you can take each day as a gift, then the storms will not weigh you down, if you can take each day as a gift, then you will be grateful and contented with what you have and where you are today. If you can take each day as a gift, your life will be devoid of murmurings and complaining. Today’s scriptures are specific! Job had to rebuke his wife who was the chairlady of the murmurers council in their community! He was telling his wife: In all things, give thanks!
