What Your Future Demands

"I wish I had more time."

Busy people say this a lot. Moms, dads, CEOs, just about anybody can say it with meaning in today's world. I mean, do you know anyone proclaiming they have too much time?

Unfortunately, these are also the last words said too often on a deathbed.

I don't mean to be morbid, but I do intend to be honest.

What Will be Your Last Words?

I don't want these to be the words and thoughts weaved between my last breath. I want to remember using my time to the full. I want to drink every drop life has for me. I want everything God keeps whispering in my ear, and I want to be able to enjoy it.

Now, to make this dream come true, I just need to do two things:

Learn how to say "no" to the excess, and let God strengthen me for the rest.

Jesus said it in the Sermon on the Mount: let your yes be your yes and your no be your no. I want my word to mean something, but saying "yes" to everything means eventually it will shift to a "no" unintentionally.

Because I'm not Superwoman.

I don't have a cape.

I didn't take flying lessons.

I don't have a force field.

I feel.

I grieve.

I laugh.

I love.

I'm human.

Saying "yes" to everything doesn't make us successful. It make us busy. Unfocused.

Tired. Overwhelmed. Mean.

That's not what I want.
