Stop wasting daylight.

I haven’t reading “Chasing Daylight” by Erwin McManus, but a favorite quote of mine (I warned you in my bio that I’m addicted to quotes) is from his book. “There are things that God does for you, and there are things that God waits for you to do. The journey begins when you choose. Stop wasting daylight. Choose a life of meaningful adventure. When you do, you will live in the epicenter of God’s activity.”

I found the quote randomly online somewhere, and I fell in love with the call to action that it provides for people to “live a life a meaningful adventure.” It not only calls one to live life — but more to make it a meaningful adventure which is an exciting proposition. This caused me to want to know more about the book itself. I looked it up on Amazon and found that it was actually written by juxtaposing the biblical account of Israel’s war with the Phillistines (1 Samuel 13 and 14) and the characters of Saul and Jonathan to “demonstrate the difference between living a life of purpose and adventure, and living one of apathy and missed opportunity” with the notion that God crafts divine moments which are specific to each of us – “priceless opportunities for us to actively engage in God’s plan.” As Amazon said, “by developing the characteristics McManus outlines, Christians can move from mundane to miraculous living.”

Tis interesting, right? The idea that we can participate in the kingdom of God simply by attempting to live a meaningful life, trusting that the desires we have in our hearts were placed their by the God of the universe? Powerful, man.
