Tim McGraw had it Right - Live Like You Are Dying!
An' he said: "I went ski diving, I went rocky
"I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu
"And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter,
"And I gave forgiveness I'd been denying."
An he said: "Some day, I hope you get the chance,
"To live like you were dyin'."
One of the latest songs by Tim McGraw talks about
a man in his forties with cancer. Who began to
live his life has if he had only days to live. And
all he hope for others was, "Someday, I hope you
get the chance, to live like you were dying." Are
you? Are you living a life like you are dying? I
don't mean in the physical sense, how about the
spiritual realm. The bible talks about dying to
self by living for Jesus.
Each day we are challenged to make decisions that
lead us away from Jesus or directly towards. Yet,
which seems easier? Dying to self takes sacrifice,
trust and faith in God. It also means letting go
of the things of this world.
I have always tried to live my life with no
regrets when I look back at the end of the day.
And maybe on my tombstone it will say just that
simple phrase, "No regrets". Yet, one of the
biggest daily challenges I face is dying to my
flesh or things of this world. And the only way I
can win the over them is ask Jesus for help. When
was the last time you just awoke in the morning
and ask, help? Help me Lord today to live for you
and not for this world. Be with me Lord every
second this day and help me make decisions that
bring me closer to you."
Each day brings new decisions and new challenges
when pursuing a relationship with Jesus and it
means we have to die to self each and everyday.
But, it also means we are promised tomorrow, life
is not to be taken for granted. It could change in
a moment like it did for the guy in the song.
This week love a little deeper, speak a little
sweeter and if you need to forgive when you were
denying doing it. It maybe then when God in heaven
says to you, "Someday, I hope you give yourself
the chance, to live like you were dying."
