My Friend Mike Getting Ready For His Vacation!

Are you prepared? I have been getting a lot of Twitter and Facebook updates from people that are getting ready to go on vacation and it is amazing for me to think about how much work and effort we put into getting ready to go and spend a week or two away from home!

Most people when they get ready to go on a vacation, do not just throw a toothbrush, change of underwear and an extra pair of pants in a bag and go! No way!   Most people take the time to think about what they are going to be doing, where all they are going and make a list of exactly what they will need for every moment of every day, so that their experience will be the very best ever!  Most people take the time to plan it all out, even if the plan does not work out as they planned!

What if we put the same effort into the everyday living out of our lives? What if at the beginning of everyday – we actually took a little bit of time to think about where we are going and what we will be doing during this day?  There is this thing called the Bible and in it – God gives us instructions on how to live our lives, so that we can get the most out of every day.

Take some time everyday this week to sit down at the beginning of your day and think though what God is doing and wants to do in and through your life! Open up your Bible and read about the plans that God has made for you.  Everyday can be an amazing day, if you will just take and make the time to enjoy what God has put in front of you!  Remember:  A little preparation makes the whole trip better!
