It’s Friday. I hear the same thing again every week.
TGIF. Thank God it’s Friday.
We can’t wait for the weekend. The weekend is almost here, and I have two days off from work.
Let me ask this? What will we do with those two days? More important, what did we do with the last five? If our workdays are spent each week just getting by and living for the weekend, then we have wasted five days that we can never get back. That time is lost.
As I get older, I’m thinking more about the fact that I have more years behind me than ahead of me. I don’t want to waste a day (definitely not five of them).
What can we do during these five days each week that will make us glad to live for each day? Let’s start by asking three questions.
? ? ?
1. Ask God a question each morning. Start each day in prayer asking God what He wants you to do this day. Then live for the day at hand anticipating God’s presence and direction.
2. Ask the first person you see (not family) how you can pray for them that day. Take time throughout the day to pray as God brings them to mind. The opportunity to be a part of someone else’s life is priceless.
3. Ask yourself a question too. What can I do today that will bring me a sense of accomplishment? When we focus on things that will fulfill our purpose, even if it is just a small step toward a larger goal, we impact the world around us.
Three questions. Ask God, ask others, ask yourself. If you want to live dangerously, you could even ask these questions on the weekend.
Don’t live each day waiting for a future moment. Live for today’s moment and see what God has in store. I’d love to hear your experiences this next week.
“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it”
