Life is for living fully, living it to its fullest, as it comes, whether good or bad. We won’t recognize the best right away. Sometimes we have to live with the person, circumstance, etc. to figure that out. Sometimes it will disappear before we understand how much we loved it/them.
Sometimes we don’t even understand that we’ve been missing something, till it shows up. Let Christ’s love grow in your heart so that you can share it for all to appreciate. Brighten someone’s day today by choosing to live your life to the fullest and confounding those who don’t or won’t.
“Men and women listened when I spoke, hung expectantly on my every word. After I spoke, they’d be quiet, taking it all in. They welcomed my counsel like spring rain, drinking it all in. When I smiled at them, they could hardly believe it; their faces lit up, their troubles took wing! I was their leader, establishing the mood and setting the pace by which they lived. Where I led, they followed.” (Job 29:21-25, MSG)
“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”–Corrie Ten Boom
Prayer- Lord, surely we can summon enough of your strength to at least smile at someone today. Thanks, God. Amen.
