Waiting To Live

People having fun all around you, but you just can’t seem to join in.

Maybe next time…

Maybe next year…

Maybe next week…

Maybe tomorrow…

Maybe then I’ll …

Fill in the blank

Maybe then I’ll be happy.

Maybe then I’ll take time to make that phone call.

Maybe then I’ll call so and so.

Maybe then I’ll live.

Have you lived like that?

Have you said those words?

Have you felt that tug to put off until tomorrow to really live, to really laugh.

You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever. Psalm 16:11 NIV

To spend time with the ones you love. To play that game with your kids, to hike that waterfall and breathe in that fresh air. To call your loved one, to say I’m sorry.

We were never called to live a joyless life, but to live life abundantly, beautifully.

We are bearers of the Good News. Deliverers of good tidings. Tell me, what does someone with good news look like?

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation… Is 52:7 NIV

No, I don’t mean are they tall or short, thin or heavy, blond hair or black. I mean their countenance. The bible said the feet of those who bring good news are beautiful but I also think that the faces of those with good news are beautiful. Think of a time you had good news to share. To your parents, your best friend, your spouse, your sibling. You were glowing with the good news. How can we live our lives with that glow of the good news all over our face. To draw others to His glow. 

Ecclesiastes 11:9 You who are young, be happy while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in the days of your youth. .. NIV

How do we really experience life with our family our friends with your co-workers and show off our beautiful feet as we go and our beautiful face as we live and share His good news, as we live out of this life. Taste the sweetness, smell the roses, enjoy those around us as we share the good news that we have been given.
