As a person, a Christ-follower, a husband, a father, and a Children’s Minister, I am excited about continually growing! I never want to be 100% satisfied with who I am. Now, please do not get me wrong, I want to love who I am and be comfortable within my skin, but to me, if I am not taking this life, my one shot, and going all out . . . then I am not captivated by life itself.
After all, life is a gift from God, and I do not want to take this gift, put it in a box, and slide it under my bed as I sleep life away, all snug and warm. I want to take this gift of life and let it explode with excitement and joy. Knowing all the while I will never get too comfortable because change is always in motion. Instead of sleeping in that cozy bed, I want to rip open that box, take out my life, and run out into the wild and feel the heat from a blazing sun or the cold from a rainy day in October.
Growth is a constant part of life whether you like it or not, so today I choose to accept that truth and make life count for all that it is worth. How about you?
