Life Is A Journey: You Might As Well Enjoy The Ride With God.

draphoto2.jpgThe unpredictability of life is a mystery that can only be fully understood by God. One day we find ourselves in a big city near the suburbs of Hong Kong. Another day we find ourselves living in a small town near the outskirts of Duluth Minnesota. How unpredictable our lives are, I say. I often wonder how anybody can live life without believing that there is a God. Life is full of inexplicable surprises for anyone to deny the existence of a superior being. How can we explain the blessings that we receive and give? How can someone be born wealthy and chose modesty over principles? I don’t have the answer to these questions but maybe one day I will understand. By the way, the photograph above was taken in the well known Natchez Trace located near the city of Jackson Mississippi. What a beautiful scenery man, I have to admit. I still remember driving down there and stopping my car beside the highway to take both a landscape photograph and to reflect. I realized in a very short period of time that it is only by the grace of God that we can live a good life, regardless of might say. I live a great life full of blessings given by Jesus Christ. Every semester, I speak with a number of college students seeking life coaching advise. I help them to find themselves and to use the gifts that God has given them and me. What a privilege to be able to encourage the youth into serving the God with their lives. I love it… I was born to do this. In the bible, we read in Acts 15:32, “And Judas and Silas, who were themselves prophets, encouraged and strengthened the brothers with many words.” We must do so with enthusiasm.

Some of us have the duty to encourage others to achieve greatness, be compassionate, and care for the poor. Someone needs to be a cheerleader for others and give unconditional generosity. The bible talks about exhortation, an important gift given by God to some. In Romans 12:8 we learn, “the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness…” How great is His word and the plans He has for one’s future. The unpredictability of life is a mystery that can only be fully understood by God. I surrender it all. It is well, it is well with my soul. As long as you lead me into your ways and future plans… We shall be just fine. My life without you is in vain. God always be glorified, forever and ever. Life Is A Journey — You Might As Well Enjoy The Ride with God all the days of your lives.
