Both Humble and Happy


I have been feeling in a bit of a rut lately.  Kind of unsure of what life holds for me right now and wondering what the future will look like. Maybe it’s because I just had a birthday and that’s a naturally reflective time, I don’t know.  What I do know is that I don’t want to live my life in a place of stagnant reflection, always looking back. I want to look to the future, always moving forward toward a new goal, a new desire, a new hope and dare I say a new dream.

I am not necessarily talking about a great big something (although who knows, that isn’t out of the picture) but just taking steps toward the life I want to be living.  Not settling for the status quo, even if the status quo is not bad or even very good, there is always room to desire more. 

For so long that felt selfish and given the state of the world, more so now. Why do we think we are meant to shrink back and settle when God called us to life live ABUNDANTLY? You can be both humble and happy.

With age comes the realization that life goes by more quickly than we imagined and the days add up to weeks and months and years before you know it.

My hope is to make little changes daily that will move toward the life and therefore, legacy that I not only want others to remember me by, but one that brings me joy, a sense of purpose and dare I say happiness.

My Pastor said last week that the value of a Christian’s life is built over an entire lifetime. And since I woke up with breath in my lungs this morning, I would say that my time is still ticking. What better way to invite others to the Christian life than to do so with a happy heart in spite of life’s trials? I

In this world we will face troubles but…God holds our future.  Let’s live life to the fullest to the glory of God while we have the chance. The world sees enough grief. Let’s show them what an abundant, humble and happy life looks like.

Don't you agree?
