Are you a person who just can’t wait to live? What do I mean? Glad you asked. Basically it’s a person who ties their happiness and everything else that’s necessary to live a fulfilling life to the future or “tomorrow” figuratively speaking. Here are a couple of examples of what someone who’s waiting to live will think or say, and in turn basically live… Example #1. The person may believe that they won’t be truly happy until they find true love and get married. In turn they’ll live depressed and miserable, often making desperate decisions trying to attain that “happiness”.
Example #2. The person may say things like, “When I retire, I’m going to travel the world.” What they’re really saying is, when I have time, I’m going to do what I’ve always wanted to do. Both example one and two have the same problem… they’re waiting on tomorrow to live! The Bible tells us, “Do not boast about tomorrow, For you do not know what a day may bring forth.” – Proverbs 27:1
You know what this means? We need to make the most of today! Happiness flows from the inside out. If you’re waiting on true love, more money, time or anything else of this world to make you happy, you’ll never be truly happy. If things or people have the power to bring you happiness, they also have the power to take it away. Get you some joy, because that’s something this world can’t take from you. Psalm 16:11, “You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Everything we need for this life is found in the Creator of life, and through His Son Jesus Christ. Don’t wait until you have more money, more time or your wedding day to live your life! You can have a fulfilled, loving, happy life right now. Your purpose in life has nothing to do with what you think you lack right now. It has everything to do with Christ being at work in you.
