Just Live-Sista' Devotions 365: When Life Seems Too Hectic To Stay Connected - Day 6

Take Time to Just Live!

The difference between Existing and Living is involving your whole being in the experience of being alive. To focus and spend all of your energy on surviving is to exist only; therefore, you end up missing out on simple blessings like a sunset, moonlight over the water, the emotional charge from a hug, the gratification received from hearing and saying the words "I love you"...and more! These are precious indulgences that God has provided so that we may be in harmony with our surroundings and those individuals that we allow to surround us. Being alive is so much more than a job, the bills and other daily worries.


Commit to living today! God means for His children to have nothing less than His best, so trust in that and free yourself from mundane survival ...a beast that can never be satisfied of you. Not allowing yourself to enjoy your time on earth and those in it is to deny yourself a wonderful gift that God meant for us all...Life.

John 10:10 (KJ) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Ecclesiastes 2:24 (The Message) 24 The best you can do with your life is have a good time and get by the best you can. The way I see it, that's it—divine fate.


Father God, I want you to free me from the bondage of being too busy. I want to experience all the wonders of my world and allow myself to just live and not just exist. Help me to realize what truly are my priorities so that I do not waste one more precious moment letting life pass me by. In Jesus name I ask... Amen.

Watch the wonder of a sunset!
Watch the wonder of a sunset!
Smell the roses!
Smell the roses!
