What will you do with your precious time in this world?
The world is a noisy place. Will you listen and be silent in the chaos? In a caffeinated, distracted, addicted-to-busy domain, will you rest?
The stakes are high, as Bill Hybels says. So lead. The world is rushed. Rest. The world is dark. Love.
We search for God, for freedom, for love, and peace. Why do we think these things have gone missing? Perhaps they’re hiding right under our noses. We catch glimpses in nature, in beauty, in song, in literature, in conversation with a friend.
Laughter ringing on a breeze brings to us the familiar feeling of hope. Will we risk embracing full-hearted desires and whole-hearted longings? Will we dare to believe, to dream, to want?
What do you want your life to look like ten years down the road? Create this future now. If in twenty years, you could accomplish just one thing, what would you want it to be? Chase after this now. What makes you feel most alive? Cultivate this now.
Identify your life purpose. Don’t let the gremlins that try to nag you and whisper messages of self-doubt hold you back. Chase your dreams now so when you look back at your life, you don’t wonder where your life went and why you never risked, failed or succeeded. It is a tragedy when we attempt to live without desire or live paralyzed by fear of failure. Perhaps it is this exact fear or risk that would make you come alive. What if we let fear become our catalyst to freedom? Are you willing to leave your places of comfort to experience the power of God’s whimsy and delight in you?
