Continuing on with Jonathan Edwards' resolutions his no. 6 is right on target for Thrive Christians: 6. Resolved, to live with all my might, while I do live.
My hope here is to encourage myself and you readers to live with all God has provided for us to have an abundant thriving life as promised in the Bible. I have seen so many people give up on life and they're the walking nearly dead. Life is a gift and I agree with Edwards, I choose and resolve to live "with all my might....while I do live!!!"
Finally Edwards revs up the motivation to live fully. He states:
7. Resolved, never to do anything, which I should be afraid to do, if it were the last hour of my life.
As many of you know if you drop by here often my husband of many years suddenly became ill this spring, and died within a month after his diagnosis. I remember him making life-choices when we thought we might have several years of life left. His eye to heaven and pleasing God was much more profound than at any other time in his life. Edwards is right; we will all make different decisions if we see this could be our last hour.
