A number of years ago as I was driving to work I asked the Lord to help me get through the day . . . just get me to 5:00 this afternoon.   I realized that thinking this way was a huge waste.  I realized as I prayed that I didn’t want to just “get through” the day.

 To exist through a day denies so much . . . it denies me a life.

 To exist through a day denies so much . . .  that God loves me and has a plan for me. 

 It denies that my family has a need for me.

 It denies that I have a place in this world to make a difference.

 To exist through the day denies that I have life . . . it actually denies that I will even have a life . . . for to exist through the day is not to live.

 Don’t exist through your day . . . live your life to the fullest . . .
