2013: Live The Life That Matters

I read several New Year posts in the past week and I must admit some have been truly awesome. For example:

These are just a few… (I couldn’t fit every post into the list)

Resolve To Do Just One Thing…

These are awesome posts with great counsel. They call us to reflect, initiate and be intentional about life – whatever our calling.

If I would give you one advise this year, it would be simple. Really simple.

No Distractions!

That’s it. Seriously!

There are so many things that call for your attention, especially after you’ve set goals for the year. There are many things to be done… but not everything is expedient or important. So, I would encourage you to focus on what REALLY matters this year.

Don’t mess around; you can’t afford such ‘leisure’.

Live The Life That Matters

The life that matters is purposeful and passionate. It empties itself into others, seeking their joy and hope. I challenge you to live the life that matters in 2013, the God-intended life. When you do, God refills what has been emptied multiple times over.

This will take courage. But with God, you can do it.

Mention one significant step you are taking to live the life that matters in 2013?

  1. Thanks for sharing my post, Joesph. You rock!

    1. You’re welcome super Sundi!

  2. My step is to get out of my comfort zone more often…and take more chances.  It has paid off so far!

  3. My one step is to share.  Share myself, my knowledge, my time, my love, my motivations, my life lessons.

    1. Sharing is good. How about you share this post? 🙂 Haha! I agree totally; sharing reminds us it’s not about us. That’s the way to live.

      1. Thanks for the reminder – I meant to do that!

  4. Thanks for the mention, Joseph!  Your “no distractions” advice reminded me of a verse I focused on at the beginning of last year.  It’s the Message translation of Prov 4: 25-27    “Keep your eyes straight ahead; ignore all sideshow distractions.
    Watch your step, and the road will stretch out smooth before you.”

    1. I must confess I am not a good fan of The Message version, but that is an awesome translation…. “Keep your eyes straight…”
      Thanks Eileen and keep inspiring many with your from-the-heart posts.

  5. One step I’m taking is stepping out and forming even better relationships. My wife and I are committing to having people over regularly and enjoy their company. Whether it be through the sharing of meals or outdoor activities. This will really help us make a life that matters.

    1. Joe, that’s something my wife and I also started doing last year and I know from experience it’s a great thing to do. We hope to do more of it with students and young people in our community. Well done and keep adding value to lives as you already do.
