This morning when I woke up, I was filled with the peaceful and exciting realization that I’m finally beginning to live the Divine Destiny which God had planned for me for years and years. What an amazing and humbling experience! I fought it for so many years because I chose my own way, my own goals and dreams and rejected His. When we choose to be all He created us to be then we become more than we ever thought we could be. The best thing I’d ever dreamed of becoming isn’t nearly as amazing as the best thing God has created me to become. When we experience God’s plan for our life, we never want to go back to our own goals and dreams—God’s are just that much better. When you’ve lived in both, the difference is like night and day! When I start to wander back into the night, the yearning for the light causes me to seek my way back. God’s will is wonderfully addicting. In His will we achieve mental, emotional and spiritual balance, we maximize our talent, we economize our time and money, we love without expectation and we live with unparalleled joy! So many times I paid lip service to “ seeking God’s will” and used it as an excuse to do nothing, take the safe path—or–even to do more of my own will. What a sad child of God!!! I was trapped in the slavery of my own way and had not learned how to live in the freedom of Christ. Everyday I must choose–will I run freely in the light and joy of God’s will or crawl back into the sad darkness of my own will? Choosing God’s will is a uniquely different path for each of us—yet, there is is one common denominator—we must yield our own way to discover His. We are often afraid to give up our own way because we want to stay safe in what we know, what we understand and what we are used to. However, until we learn to let go of our way, we will never become ALL He created us to be. Like an eagle who never leaves the nest, we will never learn to soar. God’s plan for us is more than we ever imagined! “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations for ever and ever.”(‭Eph. ‭3:20-21‬)
