Today’s daily prompt was “What is a life well lived to you?”
A life well lived is a life lived on one’s knees.
A life well lived is a life lived in the knowledge that this isn’t really life at all.
A life well lived is a life lived in love.
A life well lived is a life sacrificed to the glory of the Person we love. Jesus Christ.
A life well lived is a life lost for His sake; for that is the only way that we will ever find life.
A life well lived is a life lived in hope, watching the clouds; a life well lived is a life forgotten, the life of the old lady praying in the nursing home, the life of the cameraman praying behind the lens for this new Christian program to work, the life of the intercessor on her worn and scarred knees, the abased, the forgotten, the humbled, the apparently worthless life of a person with the courage to say, “I must decrease so that He may increase.” For he who exalteth himself shall be abased, and he who humbleth himself shall be exalted.
A life well lived is a life that earns a better life that will continue, joyous and free, into eternity. Because we plod along half-asleep now in the brief test that will be over in seconds. Life belongs to the living, and the only Living One is called Jesus. He holds the life in His beautiful, bleeding Hands, and He is calling you.
Questions, comments, suggestions? How can we live in such a way that we can earn our true life through the grace of Christ Jesus? How can we lead others to life, salvation and redemption? I would love to hear your thoughts.
