Every life has a story, including mine. So much has happened since I was born. Yet my life has just begun. Now I am faced with the question of what to do with my life?
This is the question that every graduate faces. For many, this is a hard question.
It is no longer what do you want to be when you grow up. It is what will you do now?
I have asked myself this many times. I have come to the point of a decision, many times.
I have tried many times to find the perfect thing to do with my life.
Throughout the last few years, my interests have changed from one thing to another. But I have come to realize a very important truth.
I am here for a reason. Life would not be life if there was not a reason for it. So what is the reason why we are here? Who are we, that we should live? What should we live for? What should our goal in life be?
From the moment that you became you, Yahweh had a very special plan for your life.
Your life starts with an empty page. One empty page that will one day become the beginning of the story of your life. What will your story be?
I want my story to be perfect. We all want to have the perfect story. We all want to be that important person who lives a successful life.
But how do we become that perfect person? We make mistakes and we live in a world that is not perfect.
I have found that my life is not my own.
My life was bought and paid for by our loving Heavenly Father, who is perfect. To Him, I am special and I am important.
If I trust in Him, He will write a story with my life which will be truly beautiful and special. It may not be perfect in our eyes, but it will be perfect in Yahweh’s eyes.
This is the reason I am here. This is why I live.
I do not know what the future will bring. But I do know that whatever happens will happen because Yahweh wills it to.
I will trust Him to write my story, because He made me and knows what is to come. He is the author of my soul.
I will, from this day forward, strive to live my life in such a way, that it will glorify Him. I pray with all my heart that my life will be used to bring joy into the lives of those around me.
I pray that I will alway trust in Yahweh, as the author of my life.
I pray that not only myself, but that of this year’s graduates, and the many others beginning their lives, will remember why they are here and what our purpose is.
We have a loving Creator who has a great and wonderful plan for each one of us. A plan that will become a beautiful story someday.
Wherever and whatever it is that God calls us to do with our lives…
May each one of us, have the faith and courage to do it.
May our lives be a story that shows Yahweh’s glory.
May we always trust in Yahweh as the author of our lives.
May Yahweh bless you all and your future.
I wrote this last Spring, as my graduation drew near. May you be inspired.
