“The most important work you and I will ever do will be within the walls of our own homes.” -Harold Lee
Do you ever feel like you’re just busy waiting for the next phase, the next season, the next step?
Once we arrive *here*”…life will be easier, slower, better.
We are here. Now.
Life is where we are in this moment. Circumstances will most certainly change, seasons will wax and wane, but we can’t waste NOW by waiting on something else.
For me, I’m waiting on “normal.” I’m waiting for my house, my space, my routine. And I’ve made the mistake of waiting for my “life.” But in the waiting there’s living. And in the living there’s learning, loving and growing.
“I can wait and waste, or I can live and use these moments wisely.”
In a blink, our children will be grown and, at the risk of sounding terribly pessimistic, our lives will be too. (“What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” James 4:14)
What are we doing in this moment that will last after us? What are we doing today to leave an impact on tomorrow?
Will it live on? Will our legacy be one of well-spent time and energy and conversations and relationships? Of smiles and pleasant days wherever we are? Of making our husbands better? Of making warrior-children and Kingdom-builders?
Or will we look back in a few short years and grieve over lost life while we waited?
Life is lived in the moment you’re in.
