Now to the Full

To live unreservedly; taking the fullest measure of the present.  Is there any sense or reason to survive only on shallow breaths or to pause when there is no constraint?

If as a manner of living we hold back as if to conserve, then it begs the question of just what we are withholding – and why?  If we are waiting for an unknown sign, event, or feeling, how could it possibly be known if we do encounter it?

To reserve life for the future is to consign it to the past unlived. To wait for some phantom decree is as if recalling an echo.

To live we must mount every precipitous moment with greater claim than life itself presents it to us!

  1. Spurgeon: Patience is the fair handmaid and daughter of faith; we cheerfully wait when we are certain that we shall not wait in vain. It is our duty and our privilege to wait upon the Lord in service, in worship, in expectancy, in trust all the days of our life. Our faith will be tried faith, and if it be of the true kind, it will bear continued trial without yielding. We shall not grow weary of waiting upon God if we remember how long and how graciously He once waited for us.
