A sunset moment is any moment good or bad that awakens us to the beauty of life and our own authentic purpose. It is the redemptive element one sees when we take the time and effort to learn, grow, find meaning in the greater story we were created for. It is a moment of clarity, a realization big or small which when implemented, fully embraced makes us more present and more a reflection of the one by who an by who we created for what each was created for. Sunset moments serve as a reminder to live, appreciate grown, and to motivate to see a glimpse of the grander story. It doesn't just make life better it makes life more abundant more meaningful even the pain. In other words, a sunset moment can often be the beauty rising from the ashes. It is a smile on a rainy day, a laugh long overdue. It is a splash of gratitude in a mountain of chaos It is an act of kindness when no one is there to witness its impact except you God and the recipient. It is where joy and hardship dance. It is where the ordinary has a head-on collision with the spectacular! A sunset moment transforms us even if only for a moment to teach, us, inspire us to inspire others through and in the midst of our every day living. Jesus referred to it John 10:10 as abundant life. Tim Tebow calls it purpose, One pastor calls it knowing your Why. Athletes sometimes call it the sweet spot. We all know what it is even if we can't explain it. Based on this explanation have you had a Sunset moment this week? Have you embraced it or have missed those?
