No Regret Living

Today’s my birthday. It’s not really a “big deal” day for me, except I enjoy being able to get together with my family and friends.

The Bible tells us that God has set the length of our life —

You have decided the length of our lives. You know how many months we will live, and we are not given a minute longer. (Job 14:5, New Living Translation)

I woke up this morning singing the lyrics to Mark Schultz’s song Time That Is Left.

What will you do with the time that’s left?
Will you live it all with no regret?
Will they say that you loved till your final breath?
What will you do with the time that’s left?

I want to live until I die.

Duh, right? Not really. There’s a lot of people who coast to the end, who check out long before their last day. But life is too precious to me… I have too much to do… too many to love. If God has given me a set number of days, I’m going to live everyone with excellence.

A great way to celebrate my birthday today is living with no regrets!
