Life is like looking up a tall tree...

Life. It's happenings. Breath. The abilities it gives us. Laughter. The spontaneous happiness it produces.
Life is too amazing to be true--how God created me and you.
I realized today that life is like looking up one of those really tall trees and thinking: 'Man, that's high!'... I find that we look up to life and say 'Geesh...that's high...how will I ever be able to reach there?' In other words, 'how will I get where I want to go in life'? Yeah. That's the question. How? How can we climb to the top of that tree without just staring up at it from the bottom...?--we really do have to pull our own weight. It's not just about waiting for that spontaneous moment to appear when you'll be accepted into a job and as something great. Although, after the pulling and hard work, then, comes the time to wait. Everyone's tree--or aspirations--are different...thus, each of us carry a completely different task.
Just think a minute about what you love to do a lot. Okay, now think about climbing up a tree with that on your back...you're 'aspiring high'. Aspire high for that job you want--for that ability that you want to get better at. Sure enough, you'll realize, God's there right next to you ready to give you a helping hand.
While you aspire,
love God--not the things of this world.
Laugh a lot...and, of course, crying is necessary.
be thankful in all circumstances,
Please don't complain,
Make nothingness into something...a dull room into something cheery and bright. A blank piece of paper into a written masterpiece or drawing.
Just aspire high. And remember--don't just chose a small tree to climb--choose the biggest--or the one that God is calling you to.
Note: Please don't get too caught up in the things of this world: love GOD. HIM alone.
be inspired by Christ.
