As I'm writing, I receive this helpful post from Joe Thorn: Note to Self: Live.
Joe and I were both at Moody at the same time. I really appreciate his blog and what their church is trying to be and do.
And I am always especially ministered to by his "Notes to Self."
This one especially:
[Self,] God has not promised you tomorrow, but he has given you right now. Make the most of it. Live. Live with purpose and earnestness and do all things in faith, so that whatever you are doing it is done for the glory of God.Read the whole thing.
