What does it mean to live intentionally?
Everyday we are called to live intentionally.... what does that mean? Are we doing that? What can we do better? Valid questions and I thought I would share my thought process today on this after processing my devotional. 
Be careful.
I think that is just it --- don't just mindlessly DO without understanding why you do what you do, say what you say, and be who are are today. And everyday. But I think the word "everyday" seems intimidating. So let's focus on TODAY. Because guess what... if we do... we won't miss a day.
Be careful.
When you wake up. Go to school. Get to work. Make plans with friends. Go on dates. Raise your kids. Go to the grocery. Get on your phone. BE CAREFUL.
Intentionality to me is simple WHY. Why will you what you do in your day-to-day routine. Because it DOES matter. You matter. I matter. We all have influence. Influencer doesn't mean "someone with a social media following".... it means someone who is living and breathing. You are an influencer.
Be careful.
My devotional said, "help others reach theirs". Our purpose, our WHY is to help others. To serve. To show up our best to be our best. There is no "best" without God.
Be careful. 
Wherever I go so goes the gospel. Church, lunch, alone, bar, coffee shop. Me + the Gospel hand in hand.
Powerful imagery if you ask me. I feel so much more certain knowing I don't have to do this difficult life on my own.
Be careful how you live. Don't live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. (Ephesians 5:15-16)
