Life is not perfect but happiness still manages to make its way in my life.. I believe faith God and happiness is the best key to a great life.
I'm 18, accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. It's been the lightest feeling after I had accepted Jesus in my life and I believe everyone felt the same.
I don't swim. I simply can't. It was because my mom didn't let me to. I almost died for getting drowned when I was in preschool. Thrice it was. Twice were on pools. I remember, a relative saved me. It was blurry and quite suddenly I was out the water.
The other one was when I fell into the river. It was dark, around 6 to 7 pm. It's hundred meters away from the sidewalk. It never came to my mind that I could die in that moment. The thing I thought was I need to save my flips- it slipped off my feet when I plunged into the river. I was an arm away from the land and I tried to reach the soil to hold on. It was just slippery.
But in that darkness, in that middle of hopelessness- but I haven't thought about it- someone came to save me. A guy pulled me out the water. Then he brought me to our house.
I remember my parents, aunts, uncles, and grandparents deeply worried about me. I remember myself sitting in a corner. I was wet. They told me to rinse off and change clothes. I never realized that I could die in that very moment. It was blank.
When I was in High school I just then realized how lucky I was, that God sent someone in that middle of nowhere, to save me. It was my second life, or maybe the third or the fourth. I hadn't even thanked the guy for saving me.
That's one of the reasons why I just want to be happy. To feel delightful for the rest of my life. Enjoy life to its fullest, with my loved ones, with Lord. What if the next time I fall into the waters, no one would be there to save me.
Never let sadness, failure, take a space in your seconds. Life is too short. Make the most of the good things. And have the goal of being with God in Heaven.
