Living Life

Chores, school, jobs, cleaning, floods, laughter, tears, futures. . . Life.
Here I am living life. That can mean lots of things, but one thing to keep in mind is that to be alive and to be living are different.
To be alive means you are breathing, you are moving, your body is working.
But to be living is to be experiencing, learning, growing. Growing in godliness, in friendships- deep, lasting friendships- growing in holiness. Breathing in God's plan.
To be alive is a good thing, to be living is a better thing. Living in Christ, having been raised from the dead and made a new creature.

                                             Are you living life or are you just alive?


  1. Short, yet sweet! Love this post, Eliza Ann!

    Short and to the point is sometimes the best.
