The Days in the Middle

It’s already the second Friday of 2018!

I haven’t written for a while. It seems like I add that to every blog I write lately. Hopefully that’ll change. My goal this year is to write AT LEAST every Monday and Friday.

Last night I was thinking about how quickly this Friday snuck up on me. It seems like it was just Sunday, then I blinked, and Friday is already here! It’s kind of scary how that happens – how the week just goes on without me until the weekend hits me in the face. I know I’m not the only person that experiences this.

Then I started thinking about people who live for the weekend. Do you know any of those people? Are you one of those people? The ones that dread Mondays, crawl through Tuesdays, know Wednesdays only because they are halfway to their goal, and think that all day Thursday and Fridays until 5:00pm are the slowest hours on earth.

I tried to imagine how many people in the world live like that. I started to feel sad because I think it’s a lot, and those people don’t realize that there is life to be lived in the middle. They go to work thinking that isn’t living, but it is! They run their errands and do all of those little things they need to do during the week and miss out as life just passes them by. They make goals, but never see them through because the time was never right – they were too busy waiting for Friday to actually live!

I’m not saying I never have weeks like that. I LOVE my weekends, and if I could live like it was the weekend all the time, I would really like that, but imagine how much shorter our lives would be if we only got to live the Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

We aren’t promised Fridays or even tomorrow for that matter. I want to be more intentional with my days. I want to use every single one of them and not just squander them until the day comes that I’ve run out of them.

God made every day, not so we could watch them slip away while we wait for a new one to come, but so we could live them.

So, what does He have in store for me today? How can I glorify Him? Who needs to be loved? What do I need to do to move toward my goals? These are the questions I’m going to ask myself more often!
