How do we define the person we want to be? We accumulate ideas, thoughts, and perceptions as we journey through the ups and downs of this life that help or hinder us from becoming that person. It can be perplexing at times to find that the person we desire to be is often created by the events, if given the option, we would choose to avoid.
I have an ideal that I wish to live in; a vision of which I would like my life to mirror; heroes of whom I would like to be numbered with; and yet, it all just seems to come down to choices. One right choice built upon another. The continued process of putting one foot in front of the other to accomplish one goal at a time. Many times it is just a single choice of choosing to get up after one of many falls or the choice to stand when one feels like falling.
If we could each determine to stand as Jesus did while He was here on earth, we could create a world that our children could also have the choice to stand, live in vision and enjoy the perplexities of a life fully lived.
As we get up each day choosing to live a life that is pleasing to our Creator we become the person He created us to be and thus enjoy a life fully lived.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
