I've Always Wanted To . . .

Ecclesiastes 9:10- Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.

You know you have a list of things that you've always wanted to do and many of us call this a "Bucket List". A bucket list is a list of things a person wants to experience or do before they die. For some reason, it is so much easier to keep saying "I've always wanted to" instead of actually doing what we've always wanted to do. Why do we hold off on doing things? If we have the capacity to do it, why do we hold off? Many times it could be a lack of resources or the fact that we don't have the time to pursue those specific goals. Ecclesiastes 9:10 reminds us that our days are numbered and there is so much in our reach to do, especially for the Lord. Some of you have secret plans of things you would love to do for God "one day". Perhaps in your heart, there has always been a desire to form a children's event, be a part of an outreach project, serve in a specific ministry, or even enroll in a bible institute. You are probably sitting there reading this and knowing that there is so much more in your capacity to do. I invite you to take out that long list of things you've "Always wanted to do" and do at least one of them by the end of the month. As for me, I can scratch off writing a blog that will speak life into the lives of all who read it. Don't wait any longer and be useful in the hands of God!
