What Makes You Feel Truly Alive?


What makes you truly alive? What is it that keeps you up at night and gets you going in the morning? I am not talking about just having your heart pump blood through your veins, I am talking about an aliveness that goes beyond just continuing to breathe.

These are good questions for all of us to ask ourselves from time to time. It is too easy to fall into the trap of just existing from day to day. Let’s be totally alive!

Here are three things (plus one) that make me feel totally alive:

  • Jesus! Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10, NIV). The closer I am to Jesus the more alive I become.
  • lowres0My wife! When my relationship with my wife is good I am fully alive. When it is not, I feel like I am going to die. Fortunately, I have a great relationship with my wife. This has not always been the case, but we have been intentional about growing our marriage and that intentionality has paid off. (For more information on how we became intentional about our marriage, get in touch with me through the form below.)
  • Moving forward! Following my God-given dreams, growing and becoming more of what God created me to be.

When I combine those three together I am truly alive. When my relationship with my wife is good, with both of us focused on Jesus while we follow our God-given dreams well, that is an ecstatic level of aliveness!

Bonus: I almost forgot….. Getting to fulfill my God-given purpose makes me feel alive as well. When I get to make a difference in people’s lives, when I bring more life to someone else it makes me more alive.
