Have you ever wondered if you’re really living life to its fullest?
Because Rev and I have been accused, more than once, of not living life fully.
I know you’re dying to know why, aren’t you?
Because we are content.
We are not party-ers. We don’t have to try the latest restaurant. I can’t tell you if we’ve ever been to a club. We miss most of the current movies, and can’t offer much when it comes to discussions on what’s trending on television.
We’re boring. LOL
But it makes me wonder; you know I love to wonder.
What makes people believe “living life to its fullest” means going lots of places, spending lots of money, buying lots of stuff, and knowing lots of trendy gossip?
The best definition I’ve found for a full life is: To pursue a positive, satisfying existence.
What does it take for you to have a positive, satisfying existence?
I believe a great question to ask is…
What would I do differently if I knew I only had six months to a year to live?
Because pursuing life in light of eternity changes our perspective. It changes our wants, our needs, and our passions.
If this were my last year of life:
- I would not feel the need to acquire more stuff.
- I would not eat more dinners out or travel to exotic places.
- I would not watch more television or go to more movies.
- I would spend more time with the people I love.
- I would spend more time in the Word and in prayer.
- I would watch more sunrises and sunsets.
- I would take more walks and do more star-gazing.
- I’d praise God for every moment.
Your living life to the fullest may look very different from mine and that’s okay!
Full life living cannot be defined by anyone but you.
You are uniquely and wonderfully made by a loving God, who made you for His plans and purposes. He wired you perfectly for your life and not for anyone else’s. So dream big. Pursue a positive and satisfying experience.
LIVE today in light of eternity.
You will be blessed, and you will live life to its fullest.
And to inspire you . . . here are some Quotes to Help You Life Life to Its Fullest.

“A thief comes to steal and kill and destroy, but I came to give life—life in all its fullness.” John 10:10 (NCV)

My God will use his wonderful riches in Christ Jesus to give you everything you need. Philippians 4:19 (NCV)

Trust the Lord and do good. Live in the land and feed on truth. Enjoy serving the Lord, and He will give you what you want. Depend on the Lord; trust Him, and He will take care of you. Psalm 37:3–5 (NCV)
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” ~ Helen Keller
This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24 (NLT)
