Seize the Moment!

Our pastor preached a message that was very inspiring to me on Sunday.
He was preaching from Ephesians 5:15-17

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.

Here are the highlights from his message:
  • Be opportunistic!  (in a good, moral way- use every moment!)
  • The big picture is made up of the details (tiny pixels)
  • The masterpiece of your life is made of small, deliberate, un-wasted details
  • Faith enlists our moments into the service of joy!
  • These waste moments:  anger, apathy, laziness, bitterness...  (etc.)
Be purposeful and savor these moments of life:
  • productive moments
  • peaceful moments
  • grateful moments
  • playful moments
  • precious moments
  • prayer moments
  • praise moments
  • people moments
  • service moments
  • kind moments
  • risk taking moments
and the list could go on...  

I would add:  These are the moments we need to look for & by realizing them we create them.

God Bless You,
