Free & Fit - Valentines Encouragement - Last Minute Plans
Free & Fit - Valentines Encouragement - Last Minute Plans - by Tim Cheux
The complexity of life complicates our plans, making Valentines plans can especially be difficult. Whether you are married or single, the day wont go past without some form of challenge to you to say did you do something special? Where did you go? What did you do? Who were you with? Yesterday two old friends got together and had some last minute plans. Arguably two of the most celebrated and iconic footballers in their lifetime Christiano Ronaldo (Juventus) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (AC Milan) spent the evening reminiscing about old times. One of them even managed to show up with a last minute change of plans. Just when Ibrahimovic may have thought he got one over his old friend, consistent Christiano showed up controversially in the last minute to take all the headlines equalizing with a last minute penalty to tie the game 1-1. In true Christiano Ronaldo style he scored in his eighth consecutive game of 2020 and confirmed to us all again that he is still a superstar on the centre stage at age 34. On the other, at nearly 40 years of age, Ibrahimovic himself has scored 3 goals in 7 outings. I wonder if we will still be scoring, showing up and make a difference in the twilight of our careers. What will you be doing this Valentines? Have you got a last minute Ronaldo escape plan? Whatever you decide to do this valentines, whether you go out for dinner with your partner, stay in solo and watch Netflix or go out with friends in community. I advise you in all your decision making to not be reliant on last minute plans. Our God created us to live life to the fullest. In Jeremiah 29:11 in the Amplified translation it says “For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the LORD, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” So this Valentines where ever you are I want to encourage you that you are not alone. That there is a God who loves you, who wants to redeem you and give you a future and a hope. Today you have an opportunity to turn back to Jesus this Valentines - and like St Valentine himself - live a life for Jesus. In my Church we celebrate together people who make a decision to follow Jesus and we “welcome them home” and our Pastor says “Happy Birthday!” So right now I am going to pray for you to make the best decision of your life to have a lifelong relationship, starting today, with Jesus Christ. Father today I turn to you, I surrender my old way of living, and I have decided I want to dedicate my life to you Jesus, you are my living hope, I place all my life and trust in your hands, I believe you are my one true living hope and I believe and have chosen to follow you. Today, please come into my life, take over from my uncertainty and give me hope for a future and make my life new with your will, your purpose and your plan! In Jesus name. Amen Happy Birthday!
