This is what we are going to do today

“Live life for the moment because everything else is uncertain!”
~ Louis Tomlinson

Dear Friends

It’s important to remember the value of living in the now. Yesterday can’t be changed and no matter how much we long for tomorrow we can’t do anything there until tomorrow actually comes. So why not just live in the now, in the today, in this very moment of moments? What other choice do we have anyway?

Today, we are going to grab hold of life and live it to the fullest. We are going to let people know how much they mean to us. We are going to do our jobs to the best of our ability. We are going to support our co-workers, friends, family, bosses and pastors. We are going to give to the homeless and then give some more.  We are going to praise God, pray to God and be a witness to God. Because today is all we have and sometimes this opportunity too, can be taken away from us in the blink of an eye. Just a little something to think about not only today but for always.

What are you thankful for today? How will you make the most of each moment? Do you regret not enjoying other moments in your past? Is there some point of your life you would have lived differently or to the max?

Leave your thoughts via a comment or two 🙂

This Post is Especially For When You Feel Left Behind

I am a runner

 

“If you fall behind, run faster. Never give up, never surrender, and rise up against the odds.”
~ Jesse Jackson

“Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.”
~ Victor Hugo

“Then our mouths were filled with laughter; our tongues sang for joy.
Then it was said among the nations, “The Lord had done great things for them.”
~ Psalms 126:2

Feeling left behind? Be honest, because sometimes that kind of feeling can creep all over and totally cover you without you even realising it.  So if your answer is ‘yes’ simply pause and take a long hard look at your life. Ask the hard questions … and answer them truthfully.

Think about stuff like this:

  • Am I really where I thought I’d be at this time and in this moment?
  • Do I still have lots of deep longings waiting to burst out and be fulfilled?
  • Is my boat taking a bit long to sail into harbor?
  • Is the light at the end of my tunnel fading?
  • Actually, why is the tunnel seemingly getting longer and longer instead of shorter and shorter?

Life is for living and every day we can find something no matter how small to be thankful for, even if it’s a laugh (or two or three).  But during the moments of doubt when disappointment or depression blow in, I’d say that’s the best time to take a short break to watch this short motivational video – thanks to Evelyn from the Internets – while you enjoy a big loud chuckle (because some parts are hilarious and you might even relate), dust yourself and then move on with me … because I’m with you 🙂

One Man’s Amazing Story

 

 

Today I am inviting you to meet a brave brave son of God who has an immeasurable amount of faith. His words have touched me and I am sure you will be moved by them as well.

He also made me feel ashamed; I have nothing to complain about in my life – nothing at all.  On those days when you think life is harder than hard, and thins are rough – read this and remember Bill who suffers from ALS and has unshakeable hope even as he manages to keep the faith … no matter what.
