When I was much younger, I had wanted to grow up quickly so I would take my own decisions. I loved to pray and my requests were mostly centered on my growth process. I imagined by the time I turned thirty, I would be married, have the best job and probably be driving the best car and have the whole world under my feet.
Now, I am very grown and I take my own decisions which aren’t too bad but I see life to be a complicated process. Things do not always go the way we want them. I used to imagine there would be a period in my life where I wouldn’t have to spend so much time praying because all my requests would be answered. I know there are people like me who feel they would get to such points in their lives but I doubt that will ever happen. Maybe when we die, we would stop praying 😉
Life is a little bit different from what I had imagined some years back. I have accepted that I cannot stop praying. I have also accepted that not all my requests are in line with God’s promises. My newest policy is to take each day as and when it comes. What keeps me going now is not what I have achieved or what I will ever achieve but I am excited to be alive each day. I have joy not because I drive the best car(I do not even drive) 🙂 nor do I work at some international company receiving dollars at the end of the month 🙂 but I know I am living my purpose. I proclaim God’s word whenever the opportunity presents itself and I pray each time to ensure I am aligned to His purpose for my life and if I die today, I know I would have contributed to winning souls for God’s kingdom. I believe that is the most important thing in this life.
What is the most important thing to you now? We would like you to share that with us!
