Make The Most Of Your Moments
Published on: January 23, 2024

Life is full of moments. How do you make the most of the moments you have? Time goes fast and before you know it your kids have kids. You can’t always choose what happens in the moment, but you can choose your reaction. So be intentional and choose wisely. Here are four tips to make magnificent moments for you and yours.

Moments of Merry

Find humor and joy. Laughter releases endorphins in your body that literally make you feel better. Spend time with cheerful people. Better yet become one so others seek you out. Select comedies, not horror flicks that fill you with fear. I’ve seen movies that made me regret wasting moments on watching them. You only have so many moments in life, don’t waste any of them for they are filled with opportunities to make life magical.

 Moments of Memory

Take a trip down memory lane. (Excellent Book by Sam Bowman). Your stories can lighten your load and save future generations. Remembering your past can build their future. Dwell on the positive. Don’t camp out at the negative. Pull out those tent stakes, pack up and move to a more majestic scene. If you have a traumatic memory you may need counseling for inner healing. Go to the Great Counselor for “He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds” (Psalm 147:3 KJV).

 Moments that Matter Most

 For King and Country has a song called “What Are You Waiting For?” Make the most of your moments by finding what matters the most. God so loved you that He died so you could have access to Him now and for all eternity (John 3:16). Surrendering to Him is marvelous and magical. You now live in life-union with your Maker. His resurrection is your resurrection (Colossians 3:1-4). So what are you waiting for? It’s unbelievable, but believe it! Surrender to Jesus right this moment and trust Him as your Savior. You won’t regret it. You’ll be one with Him in Glory!

Moments of Misery

Moments change destiny, not always for the better. If there is an accident and someone you love dies you have a choice to become better or bitter. Choose better for now you are better enabled to triumph in the tragedy. Going through the difficulty requires many moments of effort. When my son died I realized I would never get over grief, but I would get through it. You may find yourself well able to now have empathy and compassion to comfort and encourage others who have moments of misery in their grief or loss.

Every moment is precious. A treasure to behold and enjoy. For God’s presence is with you every moment, now and forever.
