How to Keep Your Life Alive
It has to be said that during the dark days of winter and spring, every joy and goodness that comes to us during the light of day is a gift from God, and even during the dark and stormy days of winter, joy and goodness can be added at any time, to add to that day’s light.
When night comes, when all is completely silent, there you will find Me. My slumbering sleep gives you rest forever.
Our God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and even when it seems He has not been working, He is still working, but we cannot always see Him doing it. He does not expect us to understand His past, present, or future activity in the same way as we would for ourselves. He wants us to love Him, to honor Him, to obey Him, and to have a relationship with Him, that includes righteous works.
If our relationship with Him has been broken due to sin, our only hope is to continue to walk in a relationship with Him by repenting of our sins, and allow Him to forgive our transgressions, and reconcile us back to Him.
Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.”
“And whatever I command you, you are My disciples will.”
2) We need to remember that God has already reconciled us to Him, Romans 5:10-14, but people tend to emphasize the issue of sin and sinfulness. God is generous in His love, but He is a holy God, and He will not beRespondilant in the presence of His people. I believe God expects us all to repent and believe the gospel.
1) We need to stop focusing on sin and concentrate on the Good works of God

all your strength in the same power that He has. He has done marvelous things for us, but we can not please Him. His power is to control and keep us on the right track to increase in every area of our lives. He will show us the right path to live by, and He will give us the courage to do the right things to do to please Him.
Our life is a daily walk, each and every day.
Therefore, our true success is in this, that Jesus died for our sins and rose again on the third day for our justification. We should start every day by thanking Him, and being grateful that He has- once again, forgiven us!
2) We need to quit doing the wrong things, and start doing the right
If we stop doing the wrong things and start doing the right things, our lives will change.
“If you forgive anyone his sins, they are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.” (Mark 2:17)
Now, to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to His power that is at work within us.
Be transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you may know what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
God wants us to have total control over our lives. Life with Christ is life with total peace in a peaceful atmosphere, because the Prince of peace dwells in the midst of us. He is peace, His way of living in peace, He has the peace that passes all understanding. (Philippians 4:7)
Peace is not the absence of activity, but rather peace is the peace of doing things with determination and doing them to the glory of God.
3) We need to see the full manifestation of the glorious indwelling of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
He who has my commandments and obeys them, he is who loves me.
If you love me, you will keep my commandments. These are the commands I have given you.
I have not spoken in secret, in a corner, in a dark corner; but I have spoken plainly in the open, and in the moons of the night.
We may think that we are busy, and we are not busy; but, the Lord will quietly bring what He wants to you, and you will be surprised how much better things turn out.
4) We need to remember to fellowship with God rather than spending time alone.
