Apparently I am in a mode in which I am digging small words. Small words is where it is at, I like big words like antidisestablishmentarianism and what not, but for me right now it’s about the small words. My earlier post was about the word “RE”, and today I want to stick with the small word model one more time.
Maybe it is my Latin roots, but the word is Vive. The Spanish word ‘vive‘ comes from the verb ‘vivir‘, which means ‘to live’. Sit on that for a bit. TO LIVE. You live, I live, we all live…or do we?
The movie Braveheart has a great quote…”Every man dies, but not every man truly lives”
The movie Wall*e has one too…”I don’t want to survive, I want to live!”
Psalm 139:13-16 (ESV)
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them
The above scripture reminds me that I am here for a reason/purpose that I am not merely here to take up space on this third rock from the Sun.
We are all called to VIVE…are you?
