“…I Come that you might have LIFE and LIFE more abundantly…” - John 10:10
Man, the many roads I have traveled in my life in these 20-something years I have been alive. Life ain’t been no crystal stair, but God has been good to me and the downs? Well, they have been few…but I’ve been going throughout my life, searching at each intersection for my destiny…my life.
Truthfully, many of the roads I have traveled have led to nothing but disappointments; dead ends, most of which I traveled at my own will. There have been many decisions up to this point that have been made in my life without the Source of Life…I know, pretty stupid to say no to what I’m spending time supposedly seeking after, huh? Yeeeah.
Such is life…
I cannot begin to lay out all of the wrongdoing and stinking thinking that’s been going on while on this search for Life, for if I do, I’m pretty sure that I won’t be viewed the same as I am now FROM now on…so, I’ll just leave that between my Maker and I. But, what I will divulge is that I’ve known the road I needed to travel down long before I went through the trials and setbacks that I have; and to be quite honest, I really don’t have an excuse for not traveling it besides the fact that I (or my FLESH) really didn’t want to.
And, because of that, my life is a slowly descending spiral, cluttered, and unorganized…and unnecessarily complicated. Real stupid of me not to just give in and over to God and indulge in the simplicity of life through investing my faith, hope, and trust in Him…what is with men and this dependency thing? I never really understood the reason why I felt as though I needed to work toward making things happen in my life instead of giving the problems over to God…pride, you say? Eh. Maybe so…matter of fact, I know that’s what it is….
There’s this phrase that has been ringing in my spirit for the LONGEST: “Going against the grain”…deep down inside, I know that God gave me the key for unlocking my destiny and the life inside it that He has for me in that very phrase.
Going against the urges of this filthy body, the thoughts of lust and desire…the WANT to do things my way, instead of His way…Man, have I had life skewed! Once I release or relinquish my way of thinking and doing things and convert over to the will of God for my life, the WANTS and desires that I was busy seeking after will be released…(in case you’re wondering, YES, I do feel stupid - such is life).
So I believe that I’m positioned correctly now, and I’ll be HAMMED if I allow myself and/or the enemy to sway my attention…I’m tapped into what God has in store for me…
Honesty, Integrity, Faithfulness, Humbleness…the whole 9..I’m in…real talk. I know this race won’t be easy (for ME anyway) but once I give it over to God, it will…my past is in the past…I just left the gas station of revelation…got in my vehicle of faith…don’t have a clue where I’m going…or HOW I’m gonna operate this vehicle to reach my journey, but God does; it’s His job anyway…I’m just gonna relax in Him and enjoy the scenery…
I’m on the ROAD to LIFE….Lord, reveal and make alive my destiny, YOUR perfect will in me!
