Live With An Intentional Mindset

As we were together as a family my mother would always say "we better enjoy this time we have together, because we might not get too many more opportunities to enjoy each other." It never failed, we knew it was coming before we would all part and go our seperate ways. The idea that time flys is so real! Think about it for a second. We are in the middle of October! Crazy! In just a few short weeks we are going to be driving slowly through our neighborhoods dodging goblins, spongebobs, superheros and other masked characters looking to fill their bags with candy. After that we only have 2 months before the new year arrives. How do we navigate through these fast paced years and make the biggest impact we can make? It all begins with becoming Intentional. If we are intentional our expectations become real, and we are able to turn our thoughts and desires into reality. If we are intentional we can bring focus to our day, and capitalize on what we have identified as important. If we are intentional about becoming a better parent, we will become a better parent. If we are intentional about helping others, we will help others. If we are intentional about growing spiritually, we will grow spiritually. Go ahead and add your own sentence, and you will do whatever that is, if you are intentional. I am excited to see what happens as we live with an intentional mindset.

Like the Matthew West song... I don't wanna go through the motions, I don't wanna live one more day, without [God's] all consuming passion inside of me. I don't wanna spend my whole life asking, what it I had given ev'rything...

Everyday is a new day, and we need to live a life of gratitude. We are blessed to have another day, but like the bible says, we need to live each day as if it were our last.

Thanks Pastor Kevin! God is good!
