Your Life Matters… No really, it does!
Good Morning! It is Saturday morning as I am writing this and I want you to know something – #YourLifeMatters!
I know that if you have followed me for any length of time over the last several months, I have been writing about it and I wanted to announce that later this spring, a book I have been writing is coming out called… drum roll please –
YOUR LIFE MATTERS
This is a book that tells some life stories that demonstrate that no matter where you come from, and what your life has been like up to this point, your life truly matters to far greater capacity than you could ever imagine. I want you to hear that over and over again.
As I am writing, I am also seeing more things to add to this, like – Your Hope Matters. What I mean by that is we hear the word “hope” in a variety of contexts and I believe it has lost its true meaning in our world. The average person will throw this word around, like – I hope the best for you – or – I hope that works out – or – I hope you get the promotion – or – I hope _____________ (fill in the blank). When they say those things, most often, it is with little to no real knowledge of whether that which they say they hope for is a potential reality or not – it is really more of a wish or a good thought. But the true definition of hope, is a confident expectation – I have hope that this will work out. When we truly hope, we are basing our hope on something tangible or intangible to help to produce that which we hope for.
So my question is – where does your hope come from? It matters!
The next thing I will be writing about is – Your Mind Matters! This will be about mental health – thought life and ways to improve our mental health.
Next – Your Leadership Matters
Your Church Matters
Your Family – Your Marriage – Your Money – Your Work – Your Habits – Your Health – Your Morning
All of these things and more matter and I will be writing about them more. Some will end up in a new book by themselves and others will end up in a book with others. I do not know yet but stay tuned.
The main idea I want to leave you with today is this – your life, your very existence is crucial to this world. Without you, our society would be somehow significantly less. On the other hand, if you become really intentional, your impact on the world around, can be exponentially greater. Love someone today – I mean go out of your way to love someone today, in whatever way you can. It will change your life.
God Bless You!
