Im writing this on the eve of my 41st birthday.
If I will grade my 41 years of existence, I would say that I have a grade of 85%. Not too high and certainly not too low. I’m not a very ambitious person. I want to live a simple life where everyone in my family is safe and healthy.
Is this what God wants for me? I need to know.
I received Christ as my Lord and Savior in September of 1989, over 21 years ago. I went through valleys and mountains, the proverbial ups and downs as many also have. The usual stuff that comes a person’s way.
I think there is more to my life than this.
I live a relatively comfortable life. No huge debts, not starving, I help loved ones, lack things here and there, had more than others a few times. Nothing dramatic.
The Apostle Paul said that “…being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
I am in no way complete. I am still being sanctified by Jesus. I am excited at what Jesus has in store for me and those I love.
I know it will be good. Better than the last 40 years of my life. My God is faithful. He will allow me to endure because I am His child–that is for sure. I am also believing that this year I will experience my God who is more than enough. Not just enough but more than enough.
Aside from giving me all that I need, I know that He will also give the desires of my heart as long as it is His will. I also believe that He will be using me in ways I have never imagined. I just need to be ready and prayerful always. I know that the enemy will also be along side me trying to stop God’s plans for my life.
I know I will prevail. Praise the Lord!
