"When you find me, you find life, real life,
to say nothing of God's good pleasure." Proverbs 8:35 The Message
Do you notice that now-a-days, so many people are searching for the meaning of life? Why am I here? What should I be doing? What should I believe in?
We tend to make a simple thing so complicated. But God makes a complicated thing so simple. We have to question everything and everything needs to make sense and have a logical reason. But with God, all we have to do is believe and accept.
Believe and accept!? No way, there has to be more than that! I have to earn my way to get what I want out of life. I need to sacrifice. I need to plan and be in control. Then life will be what I want it to be. But is it?
With God, all we have to do to have a life--a true life--is believe. To have a life that is full and spontaneous and joyful, all we have to do is accept. Accept the unconditional love and graciousness that God has planned for your life since before you were born and thank Him for it.
This CHRISTmas, give yourself the gift of freedom. Freedom from all the pressures of trying find life, true life, through your own acts, control and emotions--and let God give you life, true life. A life that passes all understanding. A life that is so complete that you can't take credit for it--you just know it is a gift from your Heavenly Father.
Do you want life, true life? Don't look towards earth for the answers--look upwards towards the heavens and pray. Pray for the gift of true life that only the Father can give to an open, willing heart. He will give it to you. All you need to do is humbly ask. Go ahead--ask!
