“Within each of us, just waiting to blossom, is the wonderful promise of all we can be.” This quote is a powerful reminder that there is still more of us to be expressed, more of our life to be lived, more of our life to be explored. And one of my proffessors wisely said to me, and many others along the way, that we bring glory to God by being who we are and living out the purposes for which we were created.
The summer of 2015 has been an enjoyable one for me on so many levels. I hope the same can be said of yours! This summer has also been one containing important opportunities while also providing me with ample time to reflect on life and choices. And as my thoughts have percolated this summer, I’ve come to the realization that I need to live this next season of life with greater intentionality.
Now there are several reasons why this is becoming important to me, and if you’ve been feeling the same things this summer, perhaps you’d have a thing or two you’d add to this list. But for now, here are just a few of my reasons on why intentionality living matters:
What would you add to this list of reasons of why being intentional matters?

If you are in a season of being intentional to make changes in your life, what changes are you making?
Heb. 13:7 says, Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith. A good question stemming from this verse is this: Who is a Godly leader who has the types of outcomes in their life that you’d like to have? And once you have a few of those people in mind, go to them and ask them about some of the ways they are intentionally living.
Recently I heard this said, “You’re not here to simply survive, you’re here to make a difference.” – TY
Le’t be difference makers by living intentionally!
Blessings in the journey.
