Warning! Life Doesn’t Have to be Boring!

a road ending at a gate and large tree at sunrise at Holy in the Daily blog

Do you ever feel that life is boring and dull? Do you wonder why you don’t have more adventure or excitement in your day? Does living seem to be just the same old routine to you?

Maybe you are looking in the wrong place—you are missing the whole show! Nothing is ever the same from day to day. Even the cells in your body have changed since you went to sleep last night.

Politics have changed. Kingdoms rise and fall. History is being written all over the world as you go about your daily routine.

People have changed. A silly dream, a needed rest, laughter or tears have altered who people were last night.

Circumstances have changed. God has been up all night working on your behalf behind the scenes of your life.

You have changed. The activities of yesterday have left you different than you were when you awoke yesterday morning.

Your future has changed. You are one day closer to seeing Jesus face to face.

Today is different than anything that has ever happened before or will ever be again. You will never have this day again. It is only given to you once. It is new and ready to be lived. It may hold joy, sadness, love, or memories that measure your life, but you are the only one who can determine how to respond to the events presented to you.

I’m headed out the door to get some blood work done, and I intend to brighten the day of the lab technician who takes my blood. What attitude will you choose to begin the next hour of this day?  I’d love to hear your response in the comment section below.

Book Giveaway Winners! This last week I had a Help, I’m Stuck With These People For the Rest of Eternity Book Giveaway, and I want to say “Thank you” to all who participated. I appreciated your comments, encouragement, and recommendations. As expected, there were more than two winners! Today I’m happy to announce Julie Hilton, Cheryl Pellew, and Willa Eklund as our winners. I will be sending them each a book as soon as I confirm their slow mail addresses.

In Him together, Susan Gaddis

    A doctor told me that his first patient will determine the mood that he will be in for the rest of the day. So walk in their with a smile. Always told my friends they will never be able one day to stand at my funeral and say I was a boring friend. My motto is either you laugh or you crawl up the wall

    I used to have a boring life – – it was the one where I had to be in charge of it. Following Jesus is never dull.

    Knowing how a doctor feels with his first patient is helpful to how we relate to him (or others). Thanks for the insight, Cheryl. And Jeanette, I know your life isn’t dull–have a great time of ministry in Russia. I’ll be praying for you. 🙂
