The news of the death of Dr Myles Munroe came as a shock to me. Still trying to process the information as I write this post. I hate news about sudden death. Someone wakes up, leaves their house and expects to arrive at their destination but they don’t. Death happens. It’s scary.
It does makes you think though. We take a lot of things for granted in life that we shouldn’t; myself inclusive. While having my quiet time this morning, God spoke to me about looking beyond myself and reaching out to others. He said I should bless people even with the little I think I have. The news of the death of the Munroe family further helped me to put that word in context.
As we mourn the Munroe family toay, let us bear these important things in mind:
Have a goal to make impact
The essence of life is to make impact. Lately this has been on my mind and I have blogged about several times over the last few days. It’s unacceptable for you to live a life of no impact. You can’t just think about yourself alone without reaching out to others. In whatever little way you can, strive to touch a life or two. That’s the reason why you are here on earth in the first place.
Take nothing for granted
Many of us live like we are going to be here forever. Yes we all want to live long but you don’t know exactly when you are going to leave this world. Have this at the back of your mind every time you want to make plans. Prioritize the important things and do them; things like winning souls for God, growing your spirit, being driven by purpose etc. Also don’t take the people that love you for granted. They may not be there tomorrow.
Live each day with God
There’s a Scripture that I really love in the book of Psalms. It says teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts to wisdom. I fell in love with this verse when God used it to show me that I should live each day with Him as it comes. I love making plans and setting goals but I get so caught up in preparing for the future that I forget to actually live today and enjoy it. I forget to allow God to take my hand and walk me through each day that comes. Planning for the future is great and it’s necessary but don’t neglect today. In every day and every moment, walk with God. Don’t set aside Sunday as God’s day. Every day is God’s day. When you walk with God every day, you definitely fulfill purpose because He will guide you.
