So many people live as Thoreau described, “Lives of quiet desperation.”
They desperately race to give themselves happiness, chasing down blind alleys that lead nowhere except to frustration.
I think about what a friend said, “This isn’t a dress rehearsal. This is our lives.”
So what makes the difference?
I don’t have all the answers. But I do know the trajectory of my life changed when I stopped running and asked God to lead me into his amazing life.
The journey has been filled with detours and storms. Yet, also an incredible life I never could imagine.
Paul promises, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.”*
God has planned for you a life beyond what you can even imagine. Even if you’ve missed some of it, it’s never too late to experience it.
It starts when you say, “God give me your unimaginable life.”
And then it grows each day.
*1 Corinthians 2: 9 (NIV)
