Seize the Day

Seize the day is the translation of the Latin phrase carpe diem. It means that each day, you get to live your life to the fullest.

Jesus told His disciples that,

therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself,” Matthew 6:34

I find that the meaning of seizing the day has to do with dealing with the now as opposed to worrying about the future which does not yet exist.

What do you have now?

That is what you should be concentrating on because that is your reality. Looking too much into the future will make you overlook what you have here and now. You need to learn to embrace today, because that is what you have. Despite what is going around, choose to concentrate on the good things around you.

Your spouse, children, family, friends, nature, freedom, are just a few things you can begin with everyday. Give thanks, love and enjoy the day.

By securing your today, you will lay a healthy balanced foundation for your future. Spend your time today by analysing and changing things that need to be changed. Get rid of the bad habits today. Get rid of sin today. Get rid of discouragement today. Deal with today. Seize your day, don’t let it pass you by!

If God is with us,
