In the journey of life
There are winding roads
Mountains high and valleys low
Though the road ahead may be unknown
I’m still focus on the prize that worth pressing for
I will be what you called me to be
I say Yes, Lord I agree
My desire, passionately
Is to be what you called me to be
That’s what I’ll be
All road sign read destiny
I’ll follow where ever you lead
Nothing can hinder me
For the prize is all I see
I say Yes, Yes, I agree
Jesus never promised a life without challenges or pain. Life has seasons, peaks and valleys. What He did come to give us is LIFE (real life) and that life in abundance. I guess the point of liberation is the point of understanding that real life…..or real living….is only found in Jesus. We were created and formed in our mothers’ wombs, then birthed for a reason….a purpose. That purpose is in the heart of our Creator and Father. As we walk with the Lord, we are able to discern our purpose and the pursuit of that purpose is what gives life meaning. The attainment of that purpose is the true definition of success.
The starting point, however, is a surrender to HIS will. We must accept that He is the Potter and we are the clay in His hands; that we exist for His purpose and everything in our lives must revolve around Him. Being the loving and faithful God that He is, He doesn’t leave us to flounder around on our own: “For it is [not your strength, but it is] [a]God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure.” (Philippians 2:13, Amplified Version).
Like Jesus, we should keep our eyes on the prize – God’s pleasure.
