What Are You Doing With Your Life?

IMG_4849What are you doing with your life?

Your life is a gift from God. Every day, every minute, every breath is a gift.

Your life is irreplaceable. Once a minute of your life is lived, you cannot retrieve it.

Your life is unique. God has given it to you. No one else has ever had your life, and no one else ever will. Every minute of your life is a gift from God only for you. What are you doing with it?

Your life is precious. So precious that God’s Son had to die for it to be saved. In God’s eyes, your life is priceless.

Your life is fleeting. It is but a vapor. It is a small grain of sand on the endless road of eternity. It is a small window in the palace of time…and yet you are given the whole window.

Your life is timeless. You have a whole life to use, and what you do with your life will not be undone. What is accomplished with your life is stamped on the history of mankind and no man can erase it. What are you doing with it?

Your life is unknown. You don’t know how many minutes you have left. Perhaps you have two days, perhaps you have 70 years. It is a bridge, waiting to be crossed.

Your life is a responsibility. It is not to be taken lightly. It is a gift: irreplaceable, unique, precious, fleeting, timeless, unknown. It is not something to be thrown away or esteemed as worthless. It is priceless.

God has a purpose for your life. He has a perfect plan for you. He wants you, He wants your life.

What are you doing with your life?

I waste so much time. I squander it on unimportant and minuscule things for my own pleasure, that I will forget about tomorrow. At the end of the day, I look back and regret those precious moments that I cannot get back.

And it hurts.

No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier. (2 Timothy 2:4)

Ouch. I forget about the battle. Actually, I ignore the battle. I entangle myself in the affairs of this life, in things that won’t matter. I fail to please the One who enlisted me.

I waste so much time. And that hurts. What am I doing with my life?

(For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.” – James 2:14)

I don’t have forever. My life is a fleeting vapor. When my life ends, so does my part in the battle. What am I doing with my life?

My life is a gift from God: irreplaceable, unique, precious, fleeting, timeless, unknown. What am I doing with it? Am I fulfilling His purpose and His plan for my life?

My life is priceless.

So is yours.

What are you doing with your life?

  1. That was well put. Sometimes I find myself thinking about biblical figures like David, Mary, and even the apostles who were all so young (around 16 or so?) when they allowed God to do powerful things through them, and I’m just sitting here like “well what am I doing?” certainly not as much as I could be doing. But like your post said, you have to remember what you’re here for and how little time you actually have. Thanks for the motivation.

    • Yes, so true. Jesus could come at any time; will we be satisfied with the account of our life we will have to give? Thanks for reading, and press on! 🙂

  2. What a lovely reminder going into Easter Sunday. Thank you for these beautiful words. I found you through Faithful Bloggers, and love the concept of your site. Bookmarking now! Hope you and yours have a blessed Easter.

  3. I have been asking myself this very same question and I am kind of scared about it…so I asked God for some help. My no-christian friends always tell me how easy is to live being a religious girl. However I always laughed at them because they can’t even imagine how hard it is… But one thing they are right about: leaving everything on God’s hands is the easiest life to live, even if the process to actually leave everything on His hands is the hardest thing to do.
    I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I am glad I did.
    It’s been really hard to find simple Christian blogs where I can feel identified. Most of them are too complicated to read and understand, so thank you for this wonderful message.
    I just started a personal blog. It’s not a big thing but I am really bad at saying out loud how I feel so this way I am able to write down my emotions and feelings.
