So ask yourself the following question
“What would you do if you only have 90 days to achieve your goal or you would lose what you cared about most in your life?”
Now take time to truly thing about your response. No rush, I have all day. The question seems simple, but in truth this one question gets to the heart of life itself, you relationships with your family and friends, even your relationship with Christ.
90 days, three short months, not a lot of time to spend here on earth, but long enough to make an impact on others and on your soul. Many great things can be accomplished in a few short weeks, and many more great things in a few short months.
Think about all the people you can forgive, all the wounds you can heal. 90 days to offer your blessings on others, and 90 days you can ask for God’s blessings.
If we choose to live each day as one day closer to the end, one day nearer to the 90 days, we can choose to use this time to make amends, and to show our love. What a powerful concept! What a way to live life. As the bible tells us, only the Father in heaven knows when the end will come, so live each day as it is the end. Yes I paraphrased the passage, and I am sure someone will correct me, but you get the basic idea. Life can end at anytime, so do all you do as if today is the end.
I would suggest that you write a 90 day plan, with goals you would like to achieve with in the next 90 days. As you are working through the 90 days, refer to your plan and make corrections as you move along. At the end of the 90 days, sit down and review your results to the plan. See where you failed and see where you achieved and look for the little extras you did that where outside the plan. Write down your feeling about the experience, how you felt, and what the reactions of others where and how your outlook on life has changed.
After you have reviewed the past 90 days, set up a new plan for the next 90 days, and using your experience form the past, create your new plan. Repeat this process for as long as you find it useful and the fruits of your labor are positive.
90 days, in the overall scheme of things is a very short time, but three months can change your life, and deepen your over all faith and your closeness to God. Any exercise in deepening our faith is time well spent.
Prior to starting the exercise set yourself before God in deep prayer and meditation, spend an hour before the Blesses Sacrament, and allow the Holy Spirit to penetrate you. Ask Jesus for guidance and the Blessed Mother for comfort and calmness.
Spend times truly thinking about what your 90 day plan would be, and what your end result should be. Never enter in to a plan with no end in sight, at the end of the 90 days you should have achieved your goal, or parts of it. You may not achieve your whole goal, and that ok, the idea is not to tick off points on a list, but rather to start you on a path of deepening your faith and allowing the Holy Spirit to work through you.
This is an exceptional idea.
