You Only Live Once (today’s sermon title)
For some reason, this weekend was filled with those soul stirring yet cliche questions like:
- If you knew you only had 6 months to live…what would you do?
- If you could do anything and not fail…what would you do?
- If you had the courage to say that one thing to someone you care deeply about; that you know they probably don’t want to hear but need to…what would you say?
These questions are posed to get you to think about the areas in your life where you’re not exactly living your truth. These questions make you feel like crap because deep down…you know that you need to make some changes. And the reality is…you’re scared. You’re afraid of looking foolish when you finally admit to others…what it is you really want to do with your life. You’re also scared because you know these changes will not be easy and therefore the sheer thought of the work involved paralyzes you. It’s like you don’t even know where to start.
But I know from experience, that in that moment…when you are stirred, you need to make a decision. And that decision should be to take action.
