“It’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years!” ~Abraham Lincoln
One thing I have been spending a lot of time thinking about lately is how blessed I am to still be here! A lot of people never make it to 27 years of age. I’ve gotten to enjoy 27 incredible years of life. Everyday I wake up, I remind myself of this. I try to remind myself of the brevity of life in everything I do.
Whether you are in your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s or beyond, you have been blessed with an incredible gift. The gift of life. None of us know how many more sunsets we’ll get to watch, birthday’s we’ll get to celebrate, places we’ll get to go, holidays we’ll have. Embrace every moment. Cherish every relationship. Make as many memories as you can. Experience as much as you can. Go to everything you can. Become the best you are capable of becoming. Live for God. Make your life count.
Perry Noble often says, “If you’re still here, God’s not done with you yet!” I believe that! Whether you’ve done a great job living your life up to this point or not, you can start living the life you want to live today. But you’ll never start living the life you were meant to live until you realize that you are not going to be here forever. Making the most of life and being grateful for your life are both choices. I hope that you’ll spend some time reflecting on the brevity of life this week. It will change you, I promise!
Are you thankful for however many years you’ve been blessed enough to live or do you take it for granted?
