Why is it when we go through grief that involves the loss of a loved one, we are reminded we have this one life to live?
It certainly makes us think about our life lived this far and what it has amounted to….having just lost my Father in law, I’m in love with the legacy he left behind for Christ!
What will you do with what Christ has offered you? Will you waste your energy trying to present an exaggerated version of who you really are? Will you strive to save face and pretend you’re not insecure? Remember, flesh gives birth to flesh.
Or will you get real, face down your fears, and embrace the God confident, significant life you were made for? Will you live in the knowledge that you’re deeply loved, powerfully called, and profoundly equipped to change your world? At Women World Leaders, we believe you are! We believe in YOU, but more so, God does!
I challenge you while challenging myself to wake up every morning from here forward with these words on your lips:
“Every day I’m in your presence, Lord. All that You have is mine. I have more than enough to live abundantly today. May the power of Your life in me energize all I say and do. Anoint my every choice and every word so when others encounter me, they encounter You. I live by faith and I am alive to God! Amen.”
The chorus of a song I can remember from long ago: “Only one life, so soon it will pass, only what’s done for Christ will last, only one chance to do His will, so give to Jesus all your days, it’s the only life that pays, when you recall, you have but one life.”
