Make a plan

See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.  Ephesians 5:15-16

Putting it all together:  Below is the list of the 5 points to optimize life in this world.  These are a starting point for how to plan to make your life count.  As discussed, we only have a short time here in this world and if we make a plan and stick to it, we can maximize our effectiveness and our enjoyment of the entire process.  Even if you are later in life as I am, start today.  God can still make your life matter for eternity and everything you have gone through so far has equipped you for what is to come.

  1. Enjoy each day
  2. Be led by the Spirit of God
  3. Put a plan in place to turn bad/low energy days around
  4. Ask others for help (bear one another’s burdens)
  5. Invite others to walk through life with you

Today I want to encourage you by saying, you may not always have time or think of these items in your daily routine but do your best to make time.  Start today to incorporate them into you schedule and live each day on purpose.  Become intentional in your life walk and make the most of every moment.  Begin to recognize the time that you can use more productively and pray for the energy and desire to do so.  You are not alone in this, you have the deposit of God on the inside of you in the Holy Spirit. You also have other encouraging believers that will propel you into all that God has for you in this world as you open up your life to them.

Today’s scripture reading: Ephesians 5:8-21
