Time to Stop Wishing

May 20, 2019

“When questioned about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently, common themes surfaced again and again [among hospice patients]. Here are the most common five:

I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

I wish I didn’t work so hard.

I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.

I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

I wish I had let myself be happier.”

— So writes Bronnie Ware on

Let’s connect the dots between that list and this: I came so (you) can have real and eternal life, more and better life than (you) ever dreamed. Jesus said that in John 10:10, the Message version.

Compare Bronnie’s list and Christ Jesus’ line and see what changes you might need to make in your own life.

And then make them.

Starting today.

Start living your real and eternal life and your more and better life today.

By the grace of God, it’s time to stop wishing and start living.
