Really our lives on this earth boil down to this verse! You either do it or you don't:
5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
Do you Love God with all you got? Jesus himself repeated this very verse:
37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’
Don't get caught here in this next verse because God knows the truth:
8 ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth,
And honor Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
Talk is cheap and I am afraid many folk are right here in their lives because what they say and what they do are two different things! So this morning look at your heart. Are you completely surrendered to God or are you fooling yourself?
What ever it takes, love God with everything you got because He has done everything to try and save your soul through His Son Jesus Christ!

As we go through life we must remember the lessons that God has taught us and share them with the next generations:
9 Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them.
God has done so many things in my life, I remember many of them but I have also forgot many! It is important to remember as much as we can show we can share the goodness of God and help others to see the blessings of God also. One thing that has helped me remember is a prayer journal. Every time you have a prayer request right it down. Then every so often go back and look at it and see how God has moved in that situation. Not only will it remind you of how often God answers prayer it be a reminder of what you have forgot so you can share one the many ways God is so very good to those who follow Him!
Oh God may we never forget the things you do for us each and every day. May our hearts always keep these things close as we give you praise, honor, and glory for you alone are worthy!
