I wish, I wish, I wish! How many times have I personally repeated these words? Too many is the answer. I wish I were ten pounds lighter, but I don't want to go to the gym. I wish I could go to Italy, but I will not discipline myself not to buy the next new blouse,and save the money to take the trip. I wish I had pursued Live With Intention-Inc years ago when the passion weighed on my heart. I wish, I wish, I wish. Oh I have so many to add to the list. What about you?
Let me encourage you today to stop wishing and move forward. Every day is a precious gift from the God almighty. He wants us to make the most of every opportunity He gives us. In Ephesians 5:16-17 the Apostle Paul writes, "making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is."
All of my detailed list of wishes won't change if I don't decide to apply the needed actions. I am back at the gym, eating healthy. I'm spending less, and I am pursing Live With Intention to the fullest!
How can you intentionally make the most of what the Lord has entrusted to you? How can you embrace every opportunity so you don't live a life of wishing? How can you glorify God with your gifts and talents? Stop wishing, rid yourselves of all the excuses that hinder your goals and God given passions.
Be Intentional, understand what His will is for your life!
