I am only one; but I am still one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. I will not refuse to do the something I can do. ~Helen Keller
How many times do we think that our efforts are insignificant? How many times do we think someone else will do it, or if I don't do it, no one will notice. But, if we don't step up and do what we are called to do and ignore that voice within us, then we are missing out on the blessings we will receive from not doing, serving where were are called. God gives us each only so many days on this earth to serve Him, to live a life worthy of what He put us on this earth to accomplish. We need to use each moment wisely and not waste our lives. Each of us touches the world we are in and our corner of the world is affected by the choices we make, whether you decide to jump in and get your feet wet, or stand on the side lines observing as others participate in life. We all have 24 hours in each day. If we use them to serve God and love others, our lives will be complete and we will have true contentment when the day is done. If we think someone else will do the task before us, it will never get done.
Yesterday is a wrinkle on your forehead Yesterday is a promise that you’ve broken Don’t close your eyes, don’t close your eyes This is your life and today is all you’ve got now Yeah, and today is all you’ll ever have Don’t close your eyes Don’t close your eyes This is your life, are you who you want to be This is your life, are you who you want to be This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be When the world was younger and you had everything to lose Yesterday is a kid in the corner Yesterday is dead and over This is your life, are you who you want to be This is your life, are you who you want to be This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be When the world was younger and you had everything to lose This is your life are you who you want to be This is your life are you who you want to be-Lyrics from Switchfoot's song This Is Your Life
If your life isn't everything you want it to be, you dreamed it would be? What are you waiting for? Don't wait any longer. If there's something you want to accomplish, start now and don't waste another day. Your corner of the world is waiting to see you shine!
1 Peter 4:10 Each of you has been blessed with one of God's many wonderful gifts to be used in the service of others. So use your gift well.
Ephesians 6:7 Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. 8 Remember that the Lord will reward each one of us for the good we do, whether we are slaves or free.
