I could work for money

I could perform for fame

I could perfect myself

But what do I gain?

 

A life without Christ

Is a life about me

A life lost in myself

Is a life never free

 

I could do the same things

But in a different way

I could do them with joy in my face

And the love of Jesus each and every day

 

I could work for money

Money to give

I could perform for fame

Fame to show others how Jesus lives

 

I could perfect myself

Perfect to be strong

The music is different now

A new ending to my song

Sometimes I forget to laugh.

It sounds dumb, when I say that.

But it’s true.

I work hard. I am focused. I am determined. I care much and relax little. I want so badly to do the right thing and do the job right.

But I forget to laugh.

The weird thing is, I love to laugh. I do. But sometimes I forget.

I miss it.

And then I remember. And I laugh again. And I know I mustn’t forget.

God loves to hear you laugh. He does. There is a song that sings every day. It’s His music. The galaxies, the rivers, the mountains, the birds, the blossoms, the honeybees, the treetops, the horses, the everything – they are all singing a melody that blends in perfect harmony. It’s beautiful.

And when you laugh?

You add the finishing notes.

And it’s awesome.

 

 

“Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.”

– C.S. Lewis

Stop.

Open your eyes.

Look around. Look upward.

There are miracles everywhere.

Because GOD is here. And GOD is the Creator of miracles.

Ouch.

I miss them.

I do.

It hurts.

All those moments.

Those moments I missed.

Because I was busy.

Busy.

It can become such an ugly word.

Busy.

What am I doing!?

There are souls that are dying, hearts that are lonely, and people screaming my name. There are eyes that need to shine, hands that need held, and feet that need someone to walk beside. There are relationships that need restored, fears that need fought, and dreams that need to live. They need Jesus. They need a friend. They need encouragement. They need hope. They need inspiration. They need life. They need you. They need me. They need love.

How can I be busy?

My God, by doing so much, do I miss so much?

I do.

Oh, I do.

And I ache over this.

I beg for grace. Grace to be tomorrow, what I have not been today.

“Live in such a way that those who know you but don’t know God will come to know God because they know you.”

Live. Now.

Now.

I struggle with that word. I don’t want now. I want then. I don’t want today. I want tomorrow. I don’t want the present. I want the future.

It’s excruciating to sit in the mellow of today when I want to run with the adventure of tomorrow. I hate it. Why this? Why mediocre when I want extreme? Why drag when I want exciting?

Why?!

It doesn’t have to be.

Really?

Ok. So maybe the weekends. Yeah, maybe I see it there. Maybe a little thrill. Adrenaline. Something exciting happens.

But then it’s gone.

And I’m here.

I’m now.

But…

Why not now?

Why can’t every moment be our best? Why can’t every moment contain thrill, love, delight, beauty, laughter, joy, adventure, memories, hugs, and drama? Why can’t this moment be the moment? Why not now?

GOD is in the now.

Now is the moment we’ve been waiting for.

Now is the moment to live to the hilt. To love so hard it hurts. To laugh and never stop. To find delight in the smallest moment, and awe in the biggest one. Here, people! Right here!

God is in the now.

God is here.

God wants us. Now. Today. Here.

Do you see it?

I do.

I cry inside. Misery over the moments I’ve missed.  Elation over the many to come.

Come.

Come, my friend.

Bask in this moment. This moment where God is. This moment of now.
