Don’t take it to the grave with you…

the wealthiest place in the world, Dr. Myles MunroeThe wealthiest spot on this planet is not the oil fields of Kuwait, Iraq, or Saudi Arabia. Neither is it the gold and diamond mines of South Africa, the uranium mines of the Soviet Union, or the silver mines of Africa.

Though it may surprise you, the richest deposits on our planet lie just a few blocks from your house.

They rest in your local cemetery or graveyard.

Buried beneath the soil within the walls of those sacred grounds are dreams that never came to pass, songs that were never sung, books that were never written, paintings that never filled a canvas, ideas that were never shared, visions that never became reality, inventions that were never designed, plans that never went beyond the drawing board of the mind, and purposes that were never fulfilled.

One of the greatest tragedies in life is to watch potential die untapped.

Only a small percentage of the 7 billion people on this planet will experience a significant portion of their true potential.

Are you a candidate for contributing to the wealth of cemetery?

Don’t go to the grave with your treasure within you.

-Dr. Myles Munroe

Such a great reminder about making the most of the life that God gives us every day. 

The question isn’t whether you have potential or a divine purpose that God wants you to fulfill.

The question is, are you willing to do what it takes to make sure you don’t reach the end of your years with regret of not giving it all?

Of not pursuing your dreams?

Of not trusting God to take you places you wouldn’t imagine going on your own?

Of not reaching your potential?

I don’t want the dreams and plans for my life that God has to go to the grave with me.

Do you?

Today… think about what your priorities are. What motivates you. What takes up most of your time.

Will it get you closer to that dream, passion, or desire God has placed inside of you or is it pushing you further away?

I know I still need to make some changes in my life before I can honestly say I’m giving my all to follow God wherever He will lead me.

Are there any changes you need to make?

Don’t just go through the motions. Live life on purpose with God every day. Even if you won’t get where you want to be tomorrow at least start heading in that direction with God’s help.

Be blessed!Anna… ♥

  2. Excellent post! Anna, you’ve given me more insight on how to pray for my family more effectively. I will ask Him to enable us to reach the full potential that He desires in us. 🙂

    • Thank you Wendy! That’s definitely something wise to pray for. I think we’d be surprised at the ways God can work in and through us if we only allow and trust Him to. God bless you! 🙂
