Why aren’t you dead yet?

“If the most important part of your life is ahead of you, then even during the worst times,Purpose

one can be assured that there is more laughter ahead, more success to look forward to, more children to teach and help, more friends to touch and influence. There is proof of hope . . . for more.”  The Noticer by Andy Andrews (chapter 6, p. 85).

God adores you and has a wonderful plan for your life. You may be going through difficult times or great times. You may be struggling to reach your goals and dreams in life. If you are like most people, good relationships are one of your top goals in life, but you are not completely satisfied in that area and haven’t achieved all your dreams yet. But no matter what happens, you can be sure that everything will turn out good. That is a promise in Romans 8:28 “For all things work together for good to those who love God…”

Life is a bit like making a cake. You put in flour, butter, salt, eggs and other ingredients. These by themselves don’t taste good at all. I would hate to eat raw eggs and plain flour. Some of the bad things in life are like raw eggs and flour. But after you mix them together and they pass through the heat of the oven (like we feel our life is passing through a crucible) it turns out tasting really good and it is delightful.

One evening I sat playing cards with a group of people I had never met before. To my left was an elderly woman who was very hard of hearing and that isolated her from other people. During the evening I found out her husband had died about 20 years prior. I asked her if that was difficult, she said, “It is hell.” Then she added, but it has gotten easier.”

I realized that life must be rather lonely for her because she lived alone and was so hard of hearing that communication was very difficult. I wondered why God allowed her to stay alive, when it seemed she would rather be with her husband in heaven. (Don’t worry, I now there is no marriage in heaven, if there were heaven would be called hell………..just joking.) I told her that with all that spare time she could be a very powerful prayer warrior.

Why are you here? What is your purpose in life? In a book called “The Noticer” by Andy Andrews, he makes some points (see chapter 6 pp. 83-85). He says that God has a purpose for every person alive on this earth and that you won’t die until you finish that purpose. So if you are still alive and kickin’, it means God still has a plan for you and it is a wonderful plan. If you haven’t finished your purpose, then the most exciting part of your life is ahead of you, not behind you.

You are destined to do great things in life! Click the photo of the little girl praying above and to the right for more of these ideas. What do you think? Is this true? Is your best still ahead of you? amazing power
