28 July - Make The Most Of Every Day

19,079 days; that’s how many days I have been alive today, and as I write this, I have lived

27,473, 418 minutes.

Thinking about how long it’s been since I was born makes me wonder what we all do with our time, especially when statistics report that 1.4 billion adults spend six hours and forty-four minutes on social media every week. Plus, the average person will watch 3,639 movies and 31,507 episodes of television, amounting to a staggering 78,705 hours of television in their lifetime.

If we keep on doing the same things, we will keep getting the same results, yet how many of us go from one week to the next continually doing, thinking, and talking about the same old things?

We are creatures of habit and routine and the things we did yesterday have brought us to the life we have today, but how much more life could we all be living if we considered a little more how precious each day is?

The nineteen thousand and seventy-nine thousand days I have lived caused me to think about what I have been doing and who I am becoming. What I have achieved, the lives I have impacted, and the people and places I have been blessed by. It caused me to consider what we can all do differently so that we can enjoy more those things and people that are important to us, and what we can change to create a better tomorrow.

To help give yourself a kick start to making the most of all the precious days and minutes in your life and future:

1. Think and pray about what kind of life God has put in your heart that you want to see, achieve, and experience. Jesus said He came to give us life and life abundant. What does that look like for you? (John 10:10)

2. Find out what God thinks and what His Word says about the desires and dreams in your heart. Allow Him to speak into your life so that He can help you succeed.

“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.” (Proverbs 16:3)

3. List ten things that you would like to explore, attempt, or master and plan to go and do them.

4. Write these ideas down and put them somewhere visible so you can remain focused and pray over them. (Making a vision board is a great way to do this)

5. Form a strategy and then take a step to stretch and challenge yourself so that tomorrow is bigger and better than today.

Today, I encourage you to stop living as if your life is a rehearsal and go and live it. Because the choices you make today will be who and where you are tomorrow.

The plans of the diligent lead to life.” (Proverbs 21:5)

“So, teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” (Psalm 90:12)

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

Prayer: Lord, please help me the most of this wild and precious life you have given me. Would you guide me in making a plan so I can begin today. In Jesus name Amen.
