Accusations fly about the real reason church attendance is increasing. In her mind it is not about Christ, but about women. She is not convinced that the Lord is able to make her husband desire church this much. There must … Continue reading
I wished I heard that the things you desire now will change, so consider you’re choices carefully. I wished I heard that money is fleeting and you should save a little money every time you make some. I wished I heard that interest will destroy your net worth and it is important to pay for things in cash. I wished I heard that behind every business is an individual and they should be treated as such and make sure what I am borrowing I am able to pay this individual back. I wish I heard that your house mortgage expenses only rise, no matter the fixed rate, as taxes change. I wish I heard that giving some earned income to charity is important. I wished I heard that dating multiple partners in school is nonproductive. I wished I heard that girls are the weaker vessel and should be treated like princesses. I wished I heard that my negative actions affect others in ways I may never know. I wished I heard that each individual is gifted in certain areas for a particular purpose. Although, I may have not received what I believe I should have in school, at home I received some valuable things.
I am glad I heard that I was created in the image of God. I am glad I heard that the Bible contains all the wisdom I need to live a life pleasing to my creator. I am glad I heard that God created me for himself. I am glad to have learned that my worth is in Jesus and no matter my opposition he still loves me. I am glad to have made a friend in high places. I am glad to receive the grace of God. I am glad to have been told that when I am afraid, I may trust in him.

The fire that burns inward when one is passionate about a subject is so consuming that ones thoughts are always compelled to bring up the subject. Like a sales man trying to get you to purchase a new source of electricity or woman trying to sell me Avon’s skin-so-soft on the line at Walmart. I am the same way. My passion and desire is that all may come to the knowledge of Jesus. He is life’s reason and mankinds only true purpose filler.
Are you lost concerning purpose? Are you trying to find yourself? Try finding first your designer. Try first submitting to the authority of the one who causes the thirsty to never thirst again. The way maker as I have heard some call him, or the lily of the valley and the bright and morning star. You cannot have purpose without first knowing for whom you were created.
The message of Jesus is universal. He is a Savior to anyone who would desire to repent and name the name of Christ. He does not turn away the murderer or the cheat. Israel would say his mercy endures forever. I can tell you his mercy endures forever.
His death upon the cross and his resurrection is for your benefit alone. He is and has always been sinless. His death was for the purpose of creating for us life. He died that others may live. If Hollywood celebrities and wealthy pastors have not taught us anything, it is that wealth is not the answer. For if once enlightened by the overabundance of wealth provided purpose then those who possessed it, would not need to drink in excess, overdose on drugs, or have promiscuous sex. Am I saying Jesus makes things easy? No. I am saying he makes all things beautiful in his time.
In his time you will shine and receive blessings without sorrow. In his time you will have sleep that is ever so sweet. In his time you will be filled full with purpose.
