I know you are thinking what the heck is she talking about now….yep I Googled how old I would be if born on a certain date and it gave me this. So today I am 17,403 days or 47 years and 7 months and 24 days young. Why young you ask because OLD is a term that makes me feel like I am spinning down to nothing, but young makes me sound like I am living. Its all a point of view just like if the glass is 1/2 full or 1/2 empty.
Having God in my life helps my perspective as well, I feel without Him I would be just coasting along doing whatever I want to do. If I make and error why correct it, if I hurt someone why apologize to them. Do you care if you are the one that does not hurt? Would you change your thought pattern? How would you view the world, your town (community) the bum on the street? Is it just a mass of emptiness? Are we void of a higher purpose, is there more after this life?
I for one believe in life after death, so for me I know there is more, I am not just some random blob of goo floating along in space and time, I was made for a purpose. THIS LIFE was given to me by my creator, and I try everyday to give HIM praise or thanks for giving me breath. Sure your saying that I am here because of my parents, yet there are those today born in a test tube and tucked carefully into their mother’s womb. Yet is their life any less or more than mine? Can I fully say that I would only be thinking my thoughts right now giving my surroundings only. Would people in my life not have influence over my choices, words, thoughts, and my life? Or is everything I do for a greater good that I can not even begin to see. I was on Facebook earlier this week and found several stories that called me to pray for others, and I will but not before knowing what, who, where to pray for.
When I pray it is not random, it is meaningful and thoughtful. I chat with God as we are friends not like I don’t know if He will give me what I ask for I just know He will fulfill my prayers if they fit HIS master plan. His master plan may not be what I have in mind He may see me totally doing something different like this blog. I never thought I would be able to fill pages with words and get others to read them, but I am through His grace. So being where I am in age is wonderful right now because I am doing exactly what I am suppose to be doing.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
And I know what my job here on earth is…
New International Version (NIV)
27 King Agrippa, do you believe the prophets? I know you do.”
28 Then Agrippa said to Paul, “Do you think that in such a short time you can persuade me to be a Christian?”
29 Paul replied, “Short time or long—I pray to God that not only you but all who are listening to me today may become what I am, except for these chains.”
