CHRISTIAN BUCKET LIST
CHRISTIAN BUCKET LIST
I came across this article on a Christian blog. Find link below
I had never thought of this before. Yes, I have done a bucket list before, didn’t follow through it all so this list will definitely be interesting to do. Here goes [edited a few though]
1 Get saved. Did that in 1998 the best decision I ever made. Ok I got fully sold out in 1998 otherwise I was those people who prayed the sinners prayers a zillion times but when I finally understood what living for Christ meant, I never looked back and have never regretted it since.
2. Do the same thing--locking the house up and moving to a community in
another county--where you don't know a soul. Mmmh! Maybe visiting don’t know about moving. Something to consider for sure. Though I did move to a church where I didn’t know anyone 10 years ago, does that count? Or there was also a time I was away from everyone I knew with limited communication for a month. Guess that counts….
3. Pack some things, lock your house up, arrange to have a friend look after your house, ask the post office to forward your mail. I have gone away from home before see no 2
4. Take your entire family on a Caribbean cruise. When I can I definitely will I’m a sucker for a good holiday.
5. Forgive someone. I do daily and I do my best to keep doing that.
6. Find someone who changed your life and do something special for him/her Done. The person doesn’t know how much but they will J
7. Deepen Yourself Doing that as we speak. I love my new class I learn so much about God’s Word.
8. Widen yourself. I do this especially on line. I learn a lot by not keeping my Christian walk in a box and sheltering myself from what the world really thinks.
9. Postpone your bucket-kicking event. Yes I will eat better, exercise more and take better care of myself
10. Make your own bucket list. Did that some years back… need a new one for sure
11. If you live in the area where you went to school, buy season tickets to the ball games. Attend and cheer, learn the names of players, and act like a kid again. Yet to ever go watch a sports game since Primary School Sports day. Mmmh
12. Throw a street party for your neighborhood. That would be fun, did that almost 9 years ago, does that count?
13. Develop a 15 minute comedy routine--and present it in public. Hmm I did that I don’t know if I want to involve the public.
14. Read a book of Christian theology The only reason am reading one is because of the class am taking. Find them boring. Not all but the one am reading now, yeah am just bearing with it.
15. Plant a flower garden. Yeah need to revive my garden.
16. Master one of the new techni-gadgets. Done…. Wish they didn’t change so much though
17. Do a blog. It’s where you are reading this list

30. Make up your own bucket list. I will come up with one for sure
31. Read A. W. Tozer's The Pursuit of God. I don’t know if I’ll manage the English grammar will …….. let me just leave it at that

33. If your city has a children's hospital, become a volunteer. Will check that out if it’s possible
34. Visit a nursing home and minister to patients who rarely have visitors. Something to consider for sure
35. Drop by the Intensive Care Unit at your local hospital and see if there are family members of critically ill patients who need you. Something to consider
