Nothing But a Mud Ball

Nothing But a Mud Ball


Every breath you take is a gift from God.  The ground you stand on is a gift from God. Have you ever considered if God had not breathed His breath into man, that he would still be a mud ball? Man would have form but no capacity to breath, stand on the ground, drive a car, communicate with God or anyone else.  As people we experience pleasant and unpleasant events; this is called “life”.  Relationships are a gift from God.  We are to praise him and give thanks to him for our very existence and all we experience.  Try giving praise for your relationship instead of being critical and taking it for granted.  It may be just what is necessary to bring it alive.

(1 Chronicles 29:13) Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.
