There was an Army veteran named John Crabtree who had been receiving benefits from the government. He had been wounded in Vietnam and was now on permanent disability.
One day, out of the blue, he received an official notification from the government of his own death. Needless to say, this was quite a shock!
John Crabtree wrote the government a letter stating that he was indeed very much alive and would like to continue receiving his benefits. The letter did no good. He then tried calling the government. The phone calls didn’t change the situation either. Finally, as a last resort, the veteran contacted a local television station, which ran a human-interest story about his situation.
During the interview, the reporter asked him, “How do you feel about this whole ordeal?” The veteran chuckled and said, “Well, I feel a little frustrated by it. After all, have you ever tried to prove that you’re alive?”
That’s a pretty good question for all of us. Could YOU prove that YOU are alive? Really, genuinely, deep-down alive?
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HAD AN ALIVE MOMENT? Not the last time you took a breath or had your heart beat inside your chest, but the last time you felt yourself alive to your core, alive to the present moment and all tingly inside?

When was the last time YOU had a truly alive moment?
LET THE SMALLEST STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION BECOME THE BIGGEST STEP OF YOUR LIFE…..SAYS JESUS!
