Live Your Life

The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). ~ Jesus (John 10:10, Amplified Bible)

Don't remain in the past, bound by memories, held captive by things you did, but shouldn't have or by things you didn't do, but should have.  You can't carry what was along with what is -- your Father God did not create nor equip you to do so. Remember and learn from the past, but don't live in it. Live life in the here and now.  Savor each day, each moment, as you would a fine, choice wine; a tender piece of filet mignon or an exquisite piece of rich, dark chocolate. Don't rush through it in a blur, but walk slowly, patiently and purposefully along the path that your Lord God walks with you, being attentive to His Presence and to each detail along the way.

Breathe in every scent; listen closely to each sound; be mindful of the scenery that surrounds you, no matter where you find yourself, and seek the beauty in it.  Feel the sun's warmth and the wind's coolness against your skin; the rain on your face, the snow on your tongue. Take off your shoes and dance, feeling the softness or hardness of the ground against your bare feet. Delight in the pure, simple pleasures and the joyful times that are gifts from your Father.  Learn and gain strength from the seasons of trials and sufferings that He also allows in your life.

Change is imminent.  Keep an eye towards the future and be ready for it, knowing that your precious Lord, Who is your Shepherd, is with you, holding onto your hand, leading you and guiding you. 

It's your moment, your day, your life.  Live it to the fullest, remaining open and ready to receive whatever He has in store for you.

This is your time,
This is your dance
Live every moment
Leave nothing to chance;
Swim in the sea,
Drink of the deep
Embrace the mystery of all you can be
This is your time. ~ This Is Your Time, by Michael W. Smith
