what are you doing with your life?

What are you doing with your life?

Your life is a gift from God. Every day, every minute, every breath is a gift.

Your life is irreplaceable. Once a minute of your life is lived, you cannot retrieve it.

Your life is unique. God has given it to you. No one else has ever had your life, and no one else ever will. Every minute of your life is a gift from God only for you. What are you doing with it?

Your life is precious. So precious that God’s Son had to die for it to be saved. In God’s eyes, your life is priceless.

Your life is fleeting. It is but a vapor. It is a small grain of sand on the endless road of eternity. It is a small window in the palace of time…and yet you are given the whole window.

Your life is timeless. You have a whole life to use, and what you do with your life will not be undone. What is accomplished with your life is stamped on the history of mankind and no man can erase it. What are you doing with it?

Your life is unknown. You don’t know how many minutes you have left. Perhaps you have two days, perhaps you have 70 years. It is a bridge, waiting to be crossed.

Your life is a responsibility. It is not to be taken lightly. It is a gift, irreplaceable, unique, precious, fleeting, timeless, unknown. It is not something to be thrown away or esteemed as worthless. It is priceless.

God has a purpose for your life. He has a perfect plan for you. He wants you, He wants your life.

What are you doing with your life?

I waste so much time. I squander it on unimportant and minuscule things for my own pleasure, that I will forget about tomorrow. At the end of the day, I look back and regret those precious moments that I cannot get back.

And it hurts.

“No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier.” – 2 Timothy 2:4

Ouch. I forget about the battle. Actually, I ignore the battle. I entangle myself in the affairs of this life, in things that won’t matter. I fail to please the One who enlisted me.

I waste so much time. And that hurts. What am I doing with my life??

“For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.” – James 2:14

I don’t have forever. My life is a fleeting vapor. When my life ends, so does my part in the battle. What am I doing with my life?

My life is a gift from God, irreplaceable, unique, precious, fleeting, timeless, unknown. What am I doing with it? Am I fulfilling His purpose and His plan for my life?

My life is priceless.

So is yours.

What are you doing with your life?

  1. Wow! Just tonight at a youth meeting in Roşu, I shared how, even though I have surrendered my liberty to Jesus, I break the laws of that perfect government by steeling time that belongs to the king, just to suit my own wants and desires. I owe him my every second, in fact, I gave them to him already. Yet I am constantly clinging to have control of them agian. Like you said, at the end of the day I have regrets, but it is too late. Thanks for the question, and though I know my answer is not what I want it to be, it was still encouraging to have the reminder of what could be, and what aught to be! These post keep on hitting me hard in places I need a good knock o’ sense! I look forward to your next post of challenges and encouragements! Thanks Esther!

    • Wow, that’s so neat how you had just been talking about this subject! Unfortunately, I as well am constantly wanting to take my life back into my own hands, even after giving them to God. Thanks for reading them, they are as much a challenge to myself as they are to you!

  2. Another great post. Thanks for the convicting and challenging thoughts. Oh, that I would give my all completely to God. “My” doesn’t exist anymore. It isn’t “my time”, “my life”, etc… It is “God’s time”, “God’s life”, etc… I’ve been brought with a life, I am not my own, so I must glorify God in my body. Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
