He wakes up every morning at the same time, goes through the same routine, kisses the same wife goodbye, drops the same kids off at the same school – every single day. If you were to eavesdrop on his life today or any other day, could you or would you even tell the difference? Or do the days all blend together?
We were designed for something more. Something incredible. Something beyond where most of us are today. Instead of insisting on greatness, we find comfort in dullness. Did our God create us for mediocrity? For being so darn boring? For just going through the motions?
Too many of us live day to day barely able to recognize one day from the next. We get stuck in the muck! We take up space until we leave this earth. Hopefully then some will say something nice about us at the funeral and carry on as if we never existed.
Will you be remembered or forgotten?
Kind of morbid when you put it that way but think about your life in this reference. If you were to die today would someone make a movie about your life? Could they have enough stories to truly inspire others? Not that every little thing we do has to have some bigger significant meaning. But when you add it all up and look at who you truly are and how you lived, shouldn’t there be enough content to tell a great story? Shouldn’t we be making a difference and impacting those around us?
I don’t know about you, but I am tired of living just for me. I find when I try too hard to please others I end up pleasing no one. Instead if I focus on pleasing God and providing the attention and support for my family, things seem to make much more sense. I am refocusing, re-prioritizing, redesigning my life today to make a bigger difference going forward. I’m tired of going through the motions…
We all have a blank slate in front of us. Yesterday is gone. You will never get it back. You may have wasted time. You may have lived without meaning. It nay have been “just another day” But you have the power to stop the trend. If you keep living the same way you may never discover what you were designed to do. It’s in there somewhere, waiting to come out. If you stop and stare long enough you’ll discover that each day is full of adventure and exciting opportunities. Start something new today and stop just going through the motions!
