The Rest of Your Life
So, let me ask you: What are you going to do with the rest of your life? More of the same? Continue to distract yourself with meaningless nonsense? Focus on what you can get? Keep dreaming about a change you know you will never make? Or are you finally, once and for all, ready to do something about the nagging dissatisfaction in your soul? You have one short life. We all waste some of it. How much are you wasting? If you are ready for a change, it only takes a handful of moments to flood your soul with joy and show you a new and exciting vision of the rest of your life. There is a beautiful story in Matthew’s gospel where Jesus takes Peter, James, and John up a high mountain. There he was transfigured. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as light. The definition of transfiguration is a complete change of appearance into a more beautiful spiritual state. Each moment is a mini transfiguration. Moments allow us to see what is possible, even if only for a fleeting moment. Each moment reveals who you are capable of being, and who you are capable of being is amazing. So, don’t let your past rob you of your future. You are more than the worst thing that has ever happened to you. You are more than the worst thing you have ever done. God is never more than one choice away. It only takes one moment to shift the momentum of your life in the right direction. The rest of your life is waiting for you. It will be filled with moments. Will they be holy or unholy? The choice is yours.
