Day 39: Involvement


: to engage as a participant

: to occupy absorbingly; especially to commit emotionally

PRAY: Jesus, I humbly thank you today for the way you involved yourself in humanity, that you might understand our pains, our sorrows and our sufferings. I pray that you would show me how to become involved in the lives of my neighbors, that I might see them through your eyes of grace because I understand their sorrows and sufferings. May my votes bring relief because of my involvement in the plight of those around me.

Hebrews 5:7-8

“While he lived on earth, anticipating death, Jesus cried out in pain and wept in sorrow as he offered up priestly prayers to God. Because he honored God, God answered him. Though he was God’s Son, he learned trusting-obedience by what he suffered, just as we do.”

Well loved! I have been blessed all my life to be surrounded by family and friends that nurtured, supported and loved me into the person that I have become. That love has sustained me throughout whatever circumstance I have found in life. It is the greatest gift that one can give and the essential ingredient to living life with no regrets. I reached this conclusion while lying in a hospital bed on life support for 70 days. Under those circumstances I dealt with the essential ingredients of my life. What was important? Why was I alive? What did my life mean?
