Fire of Love

As the holiday season is upon us, this morning I was praising God and thanking Him for the life He has given me. I am so grateful and thankful for my wonderful husband, friends and our church family. Having several family members currently ill and in difficult places, it causes me to contemplate how life is so precious!

I am not telling you something that you don’t know already. But what amazes me is how many times I don’t live my life as if it was my last breath, my last hour, my last day. It’s not that I’m thinking grave thoughts of death but I am pondering how I can live with passion, purpose, and vision today and for the future. What legacy will I leave? What inheritance will be passed on? What would my eulogy say about my life?

Today, I want to keep every moment before me while at the same time living from an eternity perspective. I am not going to take things for granted because in one moment, life can change. I am going to let the “little battles” go and keep my eyes on the promise and destiny that God has for me. I am going to love those that feel unlovable. I am going to speak hope to those that are hopeless. I am going to help feed others that don’t even know if they will eat today or not. I am going to be aware of those around me and ask God how to help others. Will you join me?

“Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow, we shall go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.” Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.” NAS (James 4:13-14)

    I would love to join you, Marilyn! That has been my heart lately as well. How can I live every day to the fullest? How can I further the Kingdom of God today? Praise the Lord for servants like you who want all the Lord has for them. Love you. 🙂
