One day it will all be over. My life will come to end. God knows the date. He knows the exact time. Right now my life is on a timer and it is counting down the seconds, minutes, hours, etc. And yet, I live like I have all the time in the world.
If I knew that tomorrow would not come for me, it would change how I decided to live today. It would change my list of things which I deem important. Piddly things would not matter to me. So why do I allow them to matter today?
My death will not affect the world at all. Everyone will still go on as usual. Wars will still happen. Hatred will still be. Problems will still exist. Therefore, I shouldn’t allow the problems of the world to affect my life or my ability to live fully today.
In order to fully live today, we need to love without restrictions. We can’t change reality. People will do things that we don’t like. But we get to decide how we want to react. Do we really want to allow small, insignificant things to prevent us from loving others as we should love them?
Love should rule our lives. It should direct our every decision. When I am gone, I want my family and friends to know that I loved them deeply and that I loved the Lord. Therefore, I have to live each day in that truth. Every day I want to find as many ways as possible to express my love. I want to make others feel loved just by being in my presence. The more that we give to others, the more love that we feel in our hearts.
Every night as I close my eyes, I want to know that I lived fully and loved deeply that day.
