Every Moment


     I feel very alive and self-aware of how I am spending my time lately. Not that I am spending my time badly; I just feel the tick of the clock every second.

     These seconds make up minutes, which make up hours, which make up days, which make up weeks, which make up months, which make up years, which make up my one beautiful life.

     I just want to live my life to its fullest potential. I know I am the only one in the world who gets to be me. I know I am specially gifted by God with my circumstances and inner person.

     Those are true of you too. You are the only you there is. You are specially placed in this year, this city, this family, this school, this job to live your life. It's time to break out of whatever dull routine you've gotten yourself in and do what God is putting on your heart.

     I'm not talking about wasting time on social media. This isn't even about how we should go out and "do big things for Jesus." This is about you letting go of the unimportant to do what you were made to do.

     And because we are all different, that will look very different for you than it does for me.

     But listen to the Holy Spirit. He knows what it looks like. And He will help you to live in His will and His plans for you.

     Maybe you already are.
