A Thought for today....

I saw this on both Angel and Amy's blogs....It's something to really sit and think about. I want to strive to live like this, and I challenge you to do the same.

"Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death.

Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-ordained passions.

Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention.

Keep asking questions. Keep making mistakes. Keep seeking God.

Stop pointing out problems and become part of the solution.

Stop repeating the past and start creating the future.

Stop playing it safe and start taking risks.

Expand your horizons. Accumulate experiences. Consider the lilies.

Enjoy the journey.

Find every excuse you can to celebrate everything you can. Live like today is the first day and last day of your life.

Don't let what's wrong with you keep you from worshipping what's right with God.

Burn sinful bridges. Blaze a new trail. Criticize by creating.

Worry less about what people think and more about what God thinks.

Don't try to be who you're not. Be yourself. Laugh at yourself.

Quit holding out. Quit holding back. Quit running away.

Chase the lion! "

~Mark Batterson Book: In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day
