You have only one life to live, so I would assume that you want to try to live it to your fullest potential with as few problems as is humanly possible. It is very beneficial to do a periodic life assessment, to help identify and correct any negative patterns of behavior, addictions, or relationships. It is also good to evaluate your marriage, vocation, emotional and spiritual growth, and overall success in life. Last, but certainly not least, is to see if you have a vision or God-given dream for your life. This can be done by considering a few questions.

1. How is your marriage generally progressing, in a mostly positive, or in a mostly negative way? If it is predominately negative, identify the reasons and go to work on fixing them.

2. What about your job or vocation? Are there serious problems to which you need to give attention? Is it helping to take you where you want to go in life or a dead end street?

3. Do you have any addictions? An addiction can be defined at anything that you cannot say "no" to and has control over you. This doesn't just include smoking, drinking, substance abuse, or sexual fantasies, but it can also mean things like spending way too much time talking or texting on the cell phone, watching TV, playing video games, or even trying to be a people pleaser. Do what needs to be done to get rid of destructive addictions and replace them with a something positive.

4. How is your emotional growth? Are you identifying and dealing with any destructive patterns of behavior or attitudes, like anger, depression, low self-esteem, codependency, or any other conditions of which you are aware? These can keep you from moving forward with your life.

5. What kind of relationships or associations with other people are you developing? Are they leading you in the wrong direction?

6. How is your spiritual journey? Are you seeing God work in your life in specific ways on a continual basis?

7. Are you experiencing overall success in your life? Do you have any goals or dreams, or just drifting along with the routine of living? Have you identified a God-given dream? What do envision doing with your life in a year, or 5 years, or 10 or more years?

8. Now maybe you can begin to really start living the life that God put you on earth to live.






If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
