Today, NOT tomorrow

   You can never actually live life until you have lived it to the fullest. 

 My life could end today. Right now. Tomorrow, or maybe even 20-50 years from now. We have no idea what our lifetime will hold. I may be blessed with a family, or the Lord might have other plans for me. All I know is right now I want to live today to the fullest. I want to give glory to God for everything I do. I want to have Him the focus of my thoughts, the Lord of my life, the King that I bow to. 

   And, each person I meet has a special purpose in growing my faith. The lady who delivers my mail each day might teach me how to serve. Or my mother, how to be a strong Christian each day. Maybe someone who has hurt me in a certain way will teach me more about forgiveness. Or even just smiling at a stranger in the store and seeing a pain in their eyes, will remind me to pray for them that day.



Everyone needs Christ's love, why not show that to someone today?

   I encourage you, today, to live your day to the fullest.

  2. Amen! Good message! One of my favorite songs is I Know Who Holds Tomorrow: "I don't know about tomorrow, I just live from day to day. I don't borrow from its sunshine for its skies may turn to grey. I don't worry o'er the future, for I know what Jesus said. And today I'll walk beside Him, for He knows what is ahead..."

  4. So true! Sometimes I forget that this earth is only temporary. Sometimes I think death is so far off but anything, everything could happen in seconds. This is a great reminder to live our lives for Him and not waste a moment.

    1. Hi Julia :)
      I'm really glad you liked my post. Don't be afraid! I do honestly feel the same way at times, but on my blog I feel a lot more comfortable. I think it is because I am writing rather than talking. ;)
