Life - Make It Count

Updated on December 31, 2012

Do you ever wonder if there is a greater purpose for your life? Do you know if you’re fulfilling that purpose?

Yes, there is more to just living on this earth and only you can decide what to do with the time that you have here. I really believe that God wants each of us to thrive at our very best. He has equipped us with gifts, talents and abilities to carry out our personal missions. Either we can spend our time wandering aimlessly throughout the earth or we can look to Him for precise navigation. We will always find fulfillment when we are doing what we are designed to do. The key lies in knowing the “what” in our lives. When we understand that God created us and He is the one who truly holds the key to the “what” and to life, then we can begin the road to discovery and in many instances, recovery. To be honest with you, life does happen and we don’t always have control over what comes our way. However, we can choose our responses. There are times when we may feel defeated but we can choose to rise above the circumstances and maintain a healthy attitude. You may even feel cheated, misguided, neglected but you can choose to make decisions that will move you away from the negative and into a more positive direction. It’s really up to you.

Just know that the clock of your life is ticking and the days are counting down. How will you live out the rest of your life? Take some time, think about it and do what you need to do to make life happen and don’t make the mistake of letting life happen.
