This is one of my newer favorite songs, Someone Worth Dying For by Mikeschair. This song is inspiring as it reminds us that we are someone worth dying for. Sometimes, insecurities, weaknesses or other negative thoughts may dwell in our hearts and minds. But we must always remember that God loves us so much and He sent Jesus to die for us in behalf of our sins to have LIfe and life eternal. As sinful as we are, but because of His love and grace, we are someone worth dying for...
Here are the lyrics for the song:
You might be the wife,
Waiting up at night
You might be the man,
Struggling to provide
Feeling like it's hopeless
Maybe you're the son,
Who chose a broken road
Maybe you're the girl,
Thinking you'll end up alone
Praying God can you hear me?
Oh God are you listening?
Am I more than flesh and bone?
Am I really something beautiful?
Yeah, I wanna believe, I wanna believe that
I'm not just some wandering soul
That you don't see and you don't know
Yeah I wanna believe, Jesus help me believe that I
Am someone worth dying for
I know you've heard the truth that God has set you free
But you think you're the one that grace could never reach
So you just keep asking, what everybody's asking

You're worth it, you can't earn it
Yeah the Cross has proven
That you're sacred and blameless
Your life has purpose
You are more than flesh and bone
Can't you see you're something beautiful
Yeah you gotta believe, you gotta believe
He wants you to see, He wants you to see
That you're not just some wandering soul
That can't be seen and can't be known
Yeah you gotta believe, you gotta believe that you
Are someone worth dying for
You're someone worth dying for
You're someone worth dying for

A few years ago, my late father has started a family tradition for Christmas and that was giving Christmas gifts to our less privileged neighbours. This has continued on for many years even after he passed away and the project was even adopted by our church.

The last thing on the mind of young people is life insurance. Young people know through the years that they will continue to age, but never actually grasp the concept that it’s really is going to happen to them. At least, not until they wake up one day with an aching body and wrinkled skin. Death is automatically associated with old age, but the reality is that anyone can die at any time.
Don’t Make Your Family Pay for Your Final Rites
When you reach adulthood, buy life insurance. It’s as simple as that. Most young single adults don’t think they need life insurance when no one is dependent on them for support. While that may be true, death is expensive. Who’s going to pay for your funeral expenses if you die tomorrow? Is it your aging parents, your siblings or are you planning to not have a funeral? You might save some money, but the law mandates specific guidelines to follow upon death.
Protect Your Dependents
Young married couples, with or without children, need life insurance. In most families, both spouses are required to work. Don’t get caught up in the outdated belief that only the husband needs life insurance. Death doesn’t recognize gender, so if a wife dies her husband's left with unpaid funeral expenses and financial adversity. Death is a catastrophic event, so don’t add monetary suffering to an already grieving family. It's your responsibility to protect your loved ones from financial hardships.
Life Insurance Never Gets Cheaper
Statistically, young people are low risk for life insurance companies. Although anyone can and do die, more elders die than any other sector of society. Insurance companies can pay claims on a percentage of young people and still make a hefty profit because they take in more in premiums than they pay out. Even children should have a life insurance policy. No one likes to think about the death of a child, but parents can provide life insurance for their children for just pennies a day.
Factors That Increase Life Insurance Costs
Several factors affect the cost of life insurance. Insurance companies consider age, health problems and life style along with statistical data. Generally, the younger you are the healthier you are, so term life insurance premiums will be cheaper than at any other time in your life. If you buy life insurance when you’re young, you can buy any type of insurance you prefer. Some permanent term policies lock the amount of the premium in for life.
The Risk of Waiting until Middle Age to Buy Life Insurance
If you think life insurance is unnecessary, educate yourself. When you compare rates at age twenty-five to rates at age forty-five, it’s clear why you need insurance when you’re young. Life insurance rates continue to rise with age. If you wait until you have health issues, most insurance companies will deny you coverage and you won’t be able to obtain insurance at all. If you do, the policy will probably have exclusions refusing payment if death results from an existing health condition.
