"Live your life to the fullest" has been a phrase of motivation that I can remember hearing people say since I was a younger.
Well now, as an adult, I understand that it’s more to that then just having a good time.
It involves having a good time, while first completing responsibilities.
It involves not living your life to please others, but pleasing God.
It involves fully maximizing every opportunity that God ushers into our path.
It involves living each day like it's our last, and combating the fear of 'what if'.
Ecclesiastes 6:12 in the New Living translation reads,
"In the few days of our meaningless lives, who knows how our days can best be spent? Our lives are like a shadow..."
It’s said all over the Bible that our lives are short, and it’s often compared to a shadow - here one minute, gone the next.
It's time to make each day count, and live your life to the fullest. No longer can we play with borrowed time.
Lord, teach us to number our days carefully [ Psalm 90:12 ], maximizing the time we have here on earth. Help us to freely release everything you've placed on the inside of us. I come against fear, worry, and unworthiness that causes us to unconsciously obey the evil one. Starting now, we will live each day poured out and fulfilled in Jesus name, Amen.
Live each day like it’s your last...unapologetically !!
