How We Spend Our Days

“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”  –Annie Dillard

Yesterday is gone forever, and tomorrow will bring a fresh set of challenges and worries All we can affect is this day, this hour, this moment. Today is your opportunity to become the person God so uniquely created us to be. No minute can be regained; what you do with this moment in time can only be decided right now. Each of those decisions makes up your day. Each choice determines whether your time is wasted or used for His mission and His glory.

What will be the measure of your day?

Will you passively watch the world go by wishing you were actively involved? Perhaps you will waste it mired in regret and self-pity. Or maybe, just maybe, you will choose to follow the example of Jesus and live each moment with passion and purpose. The measure of your life will be the sum of your days.

When your time on earth is done, what will you have added up?

Don’t waste your life waiting for things to be easier. Instead, determine to get better, to become more devoted, and to learn how to live as a true disciple of Jesus Christ. That will be a day well spent and a life lived well.
