All of our life, we want to belong somewhere. We search for the place where we belong. Sometimes it does take a long time. Sometimes it takes all of our lifetime. But there is a drive in us to find that place. We all know that when we find that place, we’ll be home. Because of my experiences in life, I was stubborn about most everything. I didn’t want to get it wrong and lose everything. My success rate was not real good and it made me leary of most everything. I wanted a guarantee that I wouldn’t lose my life to stupid. My intelligence always got in the way of life. it has cost me dearly. But what guarantee is there in this life? It took me 28 years to find out that there really is a guarantee in this life. It requires my surrender to acquire it. I had to surrender my intelligence and will and yes my stubbornness. The expectation of getting a guarantee in this life excited me to no end. And I was willing to give up my useless attempt to live a decent life. That is what it is about. Wanting to live a good life, where all my needs are taken care of. I had always known about the guarantee, but I always thought that I could do it myself. It’s not that I am weak or not determined to accomplish my goals. I have a very strong will and am determined in most everything to accomplish my will. I am a type A personality. And I am determined in most everything. But that doesn’t mean that I will accomplish my will in everything. The guarantee has been around for 1000’s of years. Actually, He has been here since the beginning of time. The reason is that He created time. Yes I am talking about one person. Jesus is the beginning and the end of all things. And He has the power to change my life. Which Jesus has changed me in an ongoing basis. I am being changed into the image and likeness of God. You see, I am a son of God. I am one of His children and I am headed home to heaven. My Father provides for this life and for the life to come. Remember to have this life requires surrender of our lives to Jesus. Just ask Him to forgive you and allow Jesus into your heart.
