By Charles Towne
Did you ever ask yourself, what might be?
If I ask myself the following questions each day and answer them honestly will it inspire me and help me to reach my God-given potential? I recognize these questions are personal therefore the answers are personal as well and are simply to cause us to think and perhaps to grow.
#! Am I content with the direction my life is taking me today?
#2 Am I content with my character growth… today?
#3 Am I growing, or am I just standing still, marking time… or marching in place and going nowhere?
#4 If I remain where I am today, am I going to be fulfilled tomorrow?
#5 What needs to happen in my life to give me a definite sense of fulfillment in the future?
#6 What are the defining issues in my life today that determine whether I am going to possess a sense of genuine well being and accomplishment of a life well lived tomorrow?
#7 Am I a dreamer, an imaginer?
#8 Do I think outside of the box?
#9 Do I visualize my dreams as being in the realm of reality, of possibility?
#10 Am I really living, or am I just existing?
#11 Do I really care for others, or am I self-absorbed?
#12 Do others know that I really care?
#13 Do I love my life?
(If I answered no to that one perhaps I need an attitude adjustment.)
#14 Am I striving to improve myself daily?
#15 Do I associate with people that inspire me to be better than I am?
#16 Is the world a better place because of my having been here?
#17 Am I a good listener?
#18 Do I always strive to do the right thing?
#!9 Do I always strive to do the right thing, today?
#20 Am I enjoying my life?
#21 Am I content with my spiritual condition?
#22 And the last question, which should be the first is, do I have a living, breathing, vibrant, relationship with Papa God, TODAY?
Dear Father, please help me to serve rather than be served. Help me to build up rather than tear down. Help me to be a peacemaker instead of a dissenter. Thank you for first loving me Papa God, In Jesus’ most blessed name I ask this, Amen
Trust God, and make a difference, today
