YOUTHFULNESS

The word Youthful according to English Dictionary means, freshness and Vitality characteristic of a young person.

John 4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a WELL of water springing up into everlasting life.

Proverb 17:22 A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

Jesus is the living water that only He can provide and by accepting Him and all He offers, we will have eternal life. A life that is ageless and forever young. A life full of laughter, joy and love. A life that each of us seek here on earth but is only found through Jesus.

Jesus is the water of life!! Also I believe that God wants us to not only accept Him but to enjoy the life here on earth that He has given each of us.

Ecclesiastes 8:18 So, I commend the enjoyment of life, because nothing is better for a man under the son than to eat and drink and be glad then joy will accompany him in his work all the days of the life God has given him under the sun.

God is not against us laughing, having a good time and enjoying life. He is for us! He wants us to be able to enjoy what He has created.

Why do you think He has made it in the first place? To share in it. To rejoice in it. To praise Him in it and for it.

1 Timothy 4:4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving.

What is it that you enjoy in life? Football, dancing, singing, walking, cooking, Gardening? Go for it!
Whatever it is, do it, give thanks for it and rejoice in it. Because it is from God to be enjoyed and it can be a great stress reliever.

You see people are hurting in this world. People are full of stresses, grief, pain, losses of loved ones, financial ruins, bad health, split marriages, stresses of parenting. The lists goes on and on.

Even though if we were to ask each individual person what is that they need they would tell us very different answers. But the simple truth is that we all need the same thing ‘JOY’.

We each need and desire pure Joy in this world and the truth is that it can only be found in Jesus.

We need to realise that our Heavenly Father has all things under control. As children they trust their parent will provide their need so act like a child. Trust in God and you will always look “YOUTHFUL”.
