Sometimes life is overwhelming. I find myself thinking a lot more about Heaven than earth.

I love everyone on earth, but I am getting more and more family and friends who live in Heaven now.

As I continue on earth’s battle ground, some days I am a bit envious of those who have been promoted. I start to feel I have been left behind.

However, I know I am here for a reason … God’s Purpose. He planned for me to be here at this very time.

David said, “Your Eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in Your Book before one of them came to be.”
Psalm 139:16

God planned the exact place I was to live.

Luke said, “He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.”
Acts 17:26

God planned before I was born what good works I was to do here.

Paul said, “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
Ephesians 2:10

So I am here not to formulate a plan, but to live out God’s Plan, minute by minute. I am here to learn and do His Will, whatever it is.

When our earth assignment is complete, may we be able to say to God what Jesus said.

“I have brought You glory on earth by finishing the work you gave Me to do!”
John 17:4

I invite you to listen to one of my favorite songs, as you contemplate the wonder of His creating you for such a time as this.
