Awake, Aware, Alive

I’ve been asking myself this question all day (yesterday):  what kind of person do I want to become?  It’s so interesting to me how human everyone in my life becomes the older I get.  These people that I look up to are just regular people with good days and bad days.  Also, the older I get, the more I see the impact of even the smallest choices.  It can become overwhelming.  However, life can also be so enjoyable.

The truth is, I am here, and my life has a purpose.  That purpose is to live in relationship with God and as a result shine His light to those around me.  I want to be so filled with joy that God’s contagious peace and love will spread around me like an epidemic.

I don’t want to live my life defined by my fear and failures.  I don’t want to live indebted to the opinions and approval of others.  I sing, dance, and play for an audience of One.  I long for His confidence, poise and grace.  Can I be a woman like that?  I’m certainly praying so.

I want to make my life count and the minutes and hours of every day worth it.  I pray that God will use my skills, personality, and smile to bring Him glory through my life.  I want to live like this all the time:  awake, aware, and alive.

Could there be more to this life than we’ve been living?  I’m pretty sure we all know it deep inside.  Are you ready for this?  I’m divin’ in!
