Maximizing One Day

cb dev feb 4“Companions as we are in this work with you, we beg you, please don’t squander one bit of this marvelous life God has given us.”  2 Corinthians 6:1 (MSG)

 Ever make a list, a detailed plan and then wondered why the dream drifted off to sea?  Elusive dreams slip out the window as tomorrow settles in for the night.  Procrastination loves to rob us of our dreams and goals. If we allow ourselves to step into the quicksand of excuses and rationalizations, we will quickly bury our dreams.  Perhaps this is the year,  we actually unpack our “one days” and strategically take action to transition “one day” into today.  What would that look like?  Perhaps we’d start by examining why our dreams aren’t important enough to fuel us into action today.  Maybe we’d find that it’s too easy to push them off fearing failure.  Perhaps we’ve been too distracted by the demands of  others and the detours of the seemingly urgent for the moment.  Transforming “one days” requires a re-commitment to listening to God’s voice and allowing Him to sift through our priorities.  Igniting “one days” involves a renewed devotion and passion to the purpose God has for our lives. Seizing “one days” invites a refueled discipline to lift ourselves from sinking in excuses to empowered fulfillment.  Oh , just the sound of those words turns elusive dreams into sweet reality. Wouldn’t we love to take our list, our detailed plans and our dreams to the next level?  Wouldn’t we love to dance in the circle of few who partner hard work and determination to resurrect what was once dead into vibrant life? We can if we choose to unpack our “one days” and determine to leave excuses behind.

 “Father, one day we will stand before You and give an account of all our days.  Help us to use our time wisely and pursue only those things that truly glorify You.”

 For His Glory
