I am not afraid of dying, I am afraid I have never lived!
There seems to be a recurrent theme to my weekend, with two thoughts tugging at my heart.
1. Am I living life? For the most part, I believe I am living life and yes, like many cancer survivors, I have cancer to thank for my wake up call. Instead of putting my dreams and desires on the back burner, they have moved up the front burner with the temperature turned up higher. My biggest goal is to live a life honoring God and sharing His love with others. As of now, the path seems to be leading to possible working with other survivors, along with possible some speaking/writing. (Right now I can't say I have a clear direction, just taking the steps when prompted and continuing to pray for God's guidance and direction.)
2. What can I do to help others LIVE? As I look around my circle of friends, coworkers, and family, I see so many who are doing life, but not LIVING life. Is there anything I can do to help encourage them to take the risk to explore their hidden dreams?
Thank you for bringing an awareness to my life about LIVING! Thank you for blessing me with a brother who can share his heart and ask the tough questions. Thank you for tugging at my heart. Now, I pray and ask for direction. How can I use the words you have shared to help and encourage others, knowing that YOU desire for us all to develop the talents you have given us? Thank you, Father, for the gift of life!
Q. How about you, are living today?
