I can’t seem to stop thinking about life…and the inevitable event of death that we are all scheduled for. In the last few weeks I’ve lost three loved ones and been constantly reminded of how fleeting the gift of life is.
We seem to roll through each day as if we’ll live forever. We make plans as if we are promised the next five years. We are surprised when the week ends, autumn returns or the time comes to celebrate our birthday again. Some people live without ambition or hold back their passions until they reach the age when “they will be taken seriously” only to find that they have waited half their life away.
It could all be over in a second; a moment and everything we’ve ever known is gone.
I don’t say this to be fatalistic but realistic. Every breath is a treasure and I firmly believe that as long as your heart is beating and there is air in your lungs that there is still purpose that God has for you to be involved with here on earth.
So live like fear doesn’t define you.
I choose to live on purpose.
