Lately life has been a huge mess of stress and doubt. Faith and my walk with God has not been a priority of mine. I have so little time for myself during the day, and having time for Jesus just doesn’t happen anymore. Why is this? Why does God allow us to stray so far away from him after being so close?
I do not always feel like I am living my life to it’s full capacity. Life is short… and that scares me. I have so many things I wanna do, yet making time for it all just wont happen. Including making time for Jesus. This cannot be living. This is breathing; making it through the day without burning out, going to sleep, and then repeating this again and again. We call this life. What if I want more out of my life? I don’t want to just make it through life. I want to smile daily, and try new things, and become close to God through all that I do.
Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity.
This verse is very powerful, and very special to me. Live wise, and make the most out of life. This is God’s word to us. By making time to do the things that makes us smile, and the things that worship God, we are ultimately serving him. Make time to live. School is stressful, work is stressful, some people even may be causing you stress. But a little bit of time a week to do something that brings you joy. Something that makes life worth living.
Don’t just breath through your life, live it.
