One of the best ways to take charge of your life is to take proactive steps to live each day to its fullest. So many people find themselves facing the end of the lives with sadness and regret about all the things they wish they’d done.

While this is common and speaks to human nature, living with regret doesn’t have to be your fate. Often in the Bible our everyday life is described as a race. “…let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” Hebrews 12:1b

Do you have a bucket list? The term “bucket list” comes from the phrase “kick the bucket”, slang for dying or passing away.

The list is made up of all the things you hope to do before you die. Paul says in Philippians 3:14, “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”

Run the race that God has set before you and when your race is over you will know you are going to win the prize. Hint: the prize is Jesus.
