Life is nothing more than a summation of moments—each giving rise to a single decision that makes us who we are.
In one small moment you can decide to hope or worry, be kind or harsh, listen or be heard, be excited or apathetic—hear an answer from heaven or your own selfish thoughts.
Those decisions in turn have the power to create moments of unforgettable beauty or nothing but the mundane. You have the power to make any moment into an extraordinary, miraculous, life-defining moment.
What are the moments that define your life?
Along with cancer survivor, Stacey Charter, I encourage you to “hop off the straight and narrow whenever you can . . . experience the exhilaration of the view from the edge. Because the moments spent there, that take your breath away, are what make you feel truly alive.”
There is no lack of opportunity in any given life, only the lack of life we invest in any given opportunity. What are you doing with the opportunities you’ve been given? What can you do to maximize the exhilaration they bring you?
I challenge you each and every day of this week to create life defining—no, life-giving—moments!
Colossians 4:6 MSG: Make the most of every opportunity. Be gracious in your speech. The goal is to bring out the best in others in a conversation, not put them down.
