"Many plans are in a man's heart, but the counsel of the LORD will stand." Proverbs 19:21
My Life is so very full.
I have made many choices all my life that are so incredibly different than my growing up family and even with in my own home now made with a wonderful godly & God fearing man. Often times my stubborn ways have even gotten in the way. But my Destiny is to fulfill the "Great Commission to my very last breath."
Oh I will grow old and I know that I've traveled the globe. Pondering my Destiny. Humanity and the human destiny. I have had much and I have truly experienced little. My belly has not truly gone hungry other than to satisfy the thirst to do more for Jesus Christ. Destiny?
What control do we have?
I know i am living a legacy. One that belongs to Christ Jesus alone. My choices dictate the path walked.
However, Ultimately for me to "Live is Christ and to die is gain." the Life I live I desire to be so different because i walk to the very different beat of a different drum that doesn't make sense to the world. To Love unconditionally. To confess my iniquities regularly, because He knows that I truly need HIM! No human being will ever fully satisfy 100% other than to serve them "others" with no expectations to reciprocate. To see them as they are made in Jesus Christ image.
May my life be so different that others see only Jesus Christ in his fullness and know that only He can and will save us, me from our, my sin. ONLY He will truly satisfy the hole in our hearts and spirits that was only meant for HIM. Yes even those who think, "well, I'm a good person, I live morally and ethically correct. I treat everyone good around me." Our Destiny will show in our here and in now. In the WHOLE person we are, but ultimately, it will be our 'forever' when we finally breath our last breath, close our eyes on earth "finally" and open them for our, my Eternity that we WILL and SHALL See our FULL DESTINY!
I Love Jesus with all my heart and I LOVE LIFE more than ever because He has given me one more day to Share the Love of Jesus and make others feel IMPORTANT like they, YOU truly are created. I know time is short. Very Short. Some of us will leave peacefully. Others well . . . with hard times. But we all have an ETERNAL DESTINY.
Therefore, Chose wisely whom you shall serve and the "WHY?" because . . . .
Your, My DESTINY MATTERS!
