Prison Break - out

"Inside this shell there's a prison cell"

Quoting from Switchfoot's song Free (from the album Hello Hurricane see above) I want to ask the following questions:

Where are areas in your life where you lock yourself up?
Where do you stay inside the shell?
Where are you afraid to be yourself, get yourself out there?

Let me encourage you to break out of the shell. Being quiet is not synonymous with being shy. Being loud does not mean being brisk.

God created you in His image. He made you wonderfully and He wanted you. Be, what he created you to be.

Read Psalm 139 again today. It talks about you!

The First Day

The year has slowly started. People have made New Year's pledges - maybe have already broken them. Either way, everybody expects something of this new year. Most people want it to be better than the last. Want to achieve something.
When you ask people for their life motto, or how they want to live their life, a lot of people might say, that they want to live each day as if it were the last of their life.
These days I read somebody raising the question why we don't want to live each day as if it were the first day of our lives.

I thought that was quite interesting and got me thinking. What would happen if we lived it like it was the first day of our lives?
Wouldn't we walk around, astonished and captivated by everything we see. Wouldn't we be fearless, not have a past? I guess we would not even have the chance to hurt people because we are so amazed by them. We would enjoy the day and see the beauty in everything. Just thinking about how it is when you first become a Christian? You would probably run around and tell everybody the good news. The great thing, that you got saved. You would be full of joy, knowing that you were forgiven and made righteous.

I am raising the question today. How would you live your day, if it was the first day of your life?
