Matt is a good friend of ours, so naturally anything he shares with us we want to share with you! After going through two life-changing events back to back, Matt began to contemplate life’s bigger picture and God’s true purpose for his life.

Time is a specific theme that was highlighted for Matt–the short time that we do have and the importance of spending it intentionally. What do you do with your time? Who do you spend it with? If you have any time left (so, if you’re reading this), surely there is a purpose in it and for it. 

James 4:14 says, “ do not know what tomorrow will bring–what your life will be! For you are like a vapor that appears for a little while, then vanishes.”

We all have hopes and dreams, and in order to make those a reality, naturally we make a plan. James tells us that even the best plan we can come up with is still a plan created by human hands; and ultimately, we have no clue what will happen in our tomorrow. How easy it is for life to get in the way of our plans! It is better to ask the Lord what He would have for us, and what He would have us do on our way to achieving our goals and dreams. Jesus is the ultimate plan; one that “life” can’t get it the way of. 

God uses Matt’s story and friendship as an encouragement to us to stay focused on the Lord through everything we face, and his talent is nothing short of inspiring! We Wake Waves: Matt Manzari is a short video from Matt and Centurion Boats that we think you’ll enjoy!
