The Book of Life

Have you ever wondered, what if ... what if the whole of your life is just a book. You do not actually exist, but you are a character in a book, and there is someone out there reading all about you and your life. Whatever you do, or did, in life, from the moment you are born, is written in this book which is being read right now.

"And (your name) took the dog for a walk as usual starting from the park and right into town where he/she bought some tobacco for his pipe/some lip stick to match the colour of her new shoes!"

Just imagine for a moment the whole of your past life. As far back as you can remember. All the good things you did, and the bad things too, are all written down in this book which is being read by someone. All your kindness and generosity towards others, all the spiteful hateful things you have done, all the hurts and all the pains that you have caused, or have been done to you, and all the good times you enjoyed. They are all written down in this book.

If this were so; what kind of book yours would be?

A scientific one? "And (your name) spent most of his/her life studying the reproductive system of the cockroach, and was the first one to discover that they can be taught to walk in a single file to the tune of "Happy Birthday".

Or a romantic book. "As they sat down on the warm grass for a picnic he admired her long blonde hair blowing in the wind, and ran after it before it got entangled in the bushes".

Or maybe a financial book. "(Your name) had a head for figures and became very wealthy at an early age with the aid of an electronic abacus and by inheriting a fortune".

A fantasy book perhaps. "(Your name) woke up early and ran to the forest before the trees got there, only to discover that someone had stolen the river because it had totally disappeared."

Or would it be a horror book recording all your wrongdoings and unhappiness you have caused to others?

Think about it for a moment. If whoever is reading your book was asked to write a review about it; what would He say?

For make no mistake about it ... now is the time to make sure that your Book of Life has a happy ending and a good review too.


  1. Now that is a unique thought...I think my book would have all those themes at one time or another. I will have to ponder on this post some more..Happy New Year

  2. Yes Betty, I guess we would all have those themes in our Book of Life. The good news is that we now have the opportunity to change things for the better.

    It's great to see you visiting me here again, Betty. Please make it a new year's resolution to visit more often; and tell your friends about this Blog.

    God bless you and Happy New Year.

  3. mmm ... what kind of book would I be. Or rather, what kind of book do people read when they see me when I'd rather not be seen.

    Interesting post, Victor ...

    1. We are all characters, Linda, or often play characters rather than just be ourselves. The question is: What does He think of the character that we really are?

      God bless.

  4. Oh, I would so much hope that my book would record more acts of kindness than actions that hurt others. So glad God forgives when we repent that all my sins would be erased from His Book of Life.
    Blessings, Victor!

    1. I so agree, Martha. We often try our best to do good in life; but sometimes, sadly we fail, and thankfully God forgives us once again.

      God bless you and yours.

  5. Shouldn't the book of my life be called a biography? ;)

    1. It could be called a biography, an auto-biography if you wrote it in a car, or anything else. It's what's in it that matters.

      Have you read mine?

      God bless.



God bless you.
