Defining moments - confronting the sharks in your life

We will all face them at some stage in our lives - they are called DEFINING moments. They are moments where we walk so close to the mystery of death that it is almost as if we can look into the LIFE beyond. They are moments that bring our earthly lives into sharp reality and where we do soul searching like we have never done before.

Australian Surfer Mick Fanning had one of those moments over the weekend, where he was attacked by 2 huge sharks while surfing at Jeffery's Bay - and he lived to tell the tale. In case, you missed the whole incident, the photo on today's blog is taken from that incident. I am not a prophet, but I am convinced that Mick will LIVE his life differently this week. I am sure that he will appreciate his family and friends a whole lot more. I am sure he will enjoy his health (and legs) more than he did last week. This is what DEFINING moments do for us - they change us.

2 Peter 1:2 - "I write this to you whose experience with God is as life-changing as ours, all due to our God’s straight dealing and the intervention of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ. Grace and peace to you many times over as you deepen in your experience with God and Jesus, our Master." (MSG)

What has been a defining moment for you?
We don't have to wait for a 'near death' incident to appreciate all that we have. Take a moment to thank God for all the blessings in your life.

Living in Grace
