Found: The Race of Life

I've found out what I need to search for in life.

I want to be what God wants me to be...

People think that it is through living a religious and devout life. They know too little. I, too, know little. I might even know nothing but I do have an idea.

God's ways and will is too unsearchable, unreachable, unfathomable. We can never comprehend His ways. So, how can we exactly be what He wants us to be if we do not even know what it is?

The answer is in the process. We aren't required to "know" what God wants us to be, but instead, to "BE" what He wants us to be. There is great discretion between merely "knowing" and "being". In the part of "knowing", we are failures. Who can touch or even reach God's glorious wisdom? Now, how do we "become" what He wants us to be? Simple but not easy. He said,

1 "Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost."

-Isaiah 55:1

It is through letting Him lift us in His shoulder for us to become what He wants us to be. It is through allowing His indescribable ways. It is through trusting the almighty that our human minds cannot comprehend. Listen carefully. He will speak. There is power.

Ponder this: what matters most in life's road? Is it the destination? Are we made better by the goals that we aim for? Surely not. It is the process that make us reach a destination. There is no cheating in life. You are made better by the better WALK that you walk in. And what better walk than the path were we shun all distractions along the way?

"1Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. 2Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart."

- Hebrews 12:1-2


Good night!
