142. Are You Tired Of Missing Out On Life?

by | Apr 23, 2024 | Podcast

Her words confirmed what her expressions and body language were saying. She said, “I’m tired of missing out on life.” Her job was demanding, her family needs were overwhelming, she said she had no joy and peace, and she felt as if she was hanging on for dear life by a single thread–unsure how much longer it would hold her.

Maybe you can relate. I know I could. Her words were ones I could have said time and time again some years ago. I felt her pain and I wanted to take it all way for her. In those passing moments of our short conversation, I pointed her to the One who could handle it all–God.

We know life is a gift, right? We each know this life we’ve been given is important. And I believe we all set out with hearts desiring to make a difference in it.

But sometimes, as they say, “life happens,” and one day we may wake up to the reality we are sleepwalking through life, or we are settling into situations and circumstances we never wanted, or we have completely lost our joy and peace. And we wonder how in the world we got there.

It’s no wonder we are missing out on life!

But we no longer have to. This isn’t God’s best for our lives.

The world will tell us it’s okay to live distracted. It’s okay to immerse ourselves in our phones and to tune out from what’s really important in life. It says it’s okay to not make a difference in this life and to just settle for a simple, unchallenging, unfulfilling life. And so many accept this kind of life advice and live this way.

But we know better. We know we are missing out on life. God has got more for us and we know only He can guide us to His best. Living undistracted is His best. For our growth, for the good of others, and for His glory.

Friend, God has good plans for our lives, and living distracted isn’t one of them. Living undistracted will help you live the abundant life Jesus came to give you. God bless you!
