How Would You Describe Your Life in 140 Characters?

Beth Jones

For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.

James 4:14

Not to depress you as we launch into 2016, but compared to eternity our life is but a vapor––or what amounts to 140 characters in an information age and world of words. (Sorry to sound like the writer of Ecclesiastes.) 

So, fellow vapor-life traveler, let's maximize our precious days with a laser-like focus––like, say in a Twitter-post kind of way. 

One of the best ways to live on purpose is to zoom in on what's really important––in other words, rather than meandering through life with paragraphs and pages of goals, dreams, vision and shoulda-coulda-wouldas––why not define your life (or the life you want to live this year) in 140 characters or less? 

The Bible tells us, "as a man thinks in his heart so is he..." so, what's in your heart? Can you condense what's in your heart (Uh...your life) down to these rock-bottom basics: What matters to you? What motivates you? Who are you? What would others say about you? What regrets do you NOT want to have?

To give you some ideas on where to start and to help prime your pump, I gave it a go and made a list of things that matter, motivate and inspire me. I boiled my life down and came up with 135 characters to summarize my existence...and what I want 2016 to look like. (Turns out words like: cook, clean, laundry and exercise didn't make the list.) 

My Life in 140 Characters or Less:

Jesus. Bible. Family. Others. Church. Laugh. Love. Write. Create. Build. Teach. Basics. Pray Big. Believe God. Have Fun. Eternal Fruit.

What about you? Ready to whittle your life down to 140 characters or less? 

Say It: “Father, I ask You to help me focus and maximize my vapor-like life this year––according to Your purposes! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
