I've told myself that a lot before. School was pretty much my 'life'...I know, how inconvenient, right? But then I got involved in an 'Air Cadet' thing I guess you could call it, I got promoted in a group to second command and have lots of 'responsibilities'. So now I'd say I have a 'life' because I'm involved in different things with more people then just myself and my imaginary friends...(Oops, sorry guys xD I forgot you wanted to remain secret...)...ANYWAY, but really I'm starting to think I'm so busy that I actually DON'T have a life. Odd, huh? But then if you take it the other way, I may be quitting a couple things and getting a job. Money in my pocket and bank account WOULD definitely be nice...then I could start paying for things and actually 'have' a life. Of course if I get a job, and being the hard worker that I am, I might not actually have a 'life'.
Interesting in contrast, isn't it? I guess you could say, that in order to have a 'life', you must lose it. Whoa...that sounds Biblical, doesn't it? John 11: 25-26 says: Jesus said to her, "I am the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever Believes in ME, though he die, yet he shall live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?"
I really love the paradox in that: Though he die, yet he shall live. We must die to ourselves, and live in Christ to live. It's a very interesting thing to think about indeed.
