I want to do SO Many things with my life, have so many goals, so little plans and very tight bandwidth to achieve everything; what a dilema!
What are the things you see when imagining the end of your life?
I see a successful career, full with strong, relevant, impactful and friendly relationships.
Soaked in ever-flowing, practical, useful and beautiful creativity.
I also see a tight, respectful, ever growing family.
I see health and vitality in the bodies of people around me and my own.
I see my children healthy, prosperous, humble, in love with life, in love with the source of every goodness in life, at peace, trusting the never ending love of Jesus and the power of his cross over every evil.
I see my loving husband full of joy, looking back at his days in earth, satisfied with they way he’s lived and the fruit God brought forth through him. Crazy in love with me.
I see my parents laughing, savoring and prepping a delicious meal, playing with the youngest of the family, full with love and vitality.
I see my brothers full with peace and satisfaction of the fruit of their work, of the abundance in their lives. In love, healthy, rich, generous. I see their cup overflowing.
I see myself, holding hands with everybody, singing songs, dancing, laughing, sharing the joy of living.
I imagine myself in extasis every morning and every night at the new adventure of living a new day, hand and hand with the provider of every life.
Honoring that life in every way, in full surrender, innocence and boldness.
More than anything, I see a lot of people receiving life because we exist in earth. Because the spirit of God has moved every single of our breaths to multiply his own life and glory.
Uf! That’s ambitious! lol!
Could I pull out all of the those wonderful outcomes myself?
Of course not. Even keeping my own body healthy and agil is a struggle, lol.
But I pray, I know the one who created everything from an invisible seed wants his creation to LIVE; so I pray in the same heart, in the same spirit as Him.
I know He is passionate about his sons and daughters to thrive and shine.
I know He‘s not shy to save from any form of destruction.
I know too, that He is of humble heart, that he made us full of dignity, each unique and perfect, and he values and respects our person.
I know He’s always here, that he doesn’t leave us ever, not even when we leave him.
He will never hijack our will.
Even when we reject his plans to prosper us and be living testimonies of his perfect, loving, graceful greatness.
More than anything, I pray to never forget I live in his house. That my whole life is his temple. That my whole being needs him more than anything else to LIVE FREE.
I pray we can share the same heart as he, to be happy for what makes him happy and share on his sorrow too.
Because if it is ever different, if I forget about him, I forget about me, I forget about all the plans He has, I may even dare to ignore his callings and go my way into destruction, oppression and pain.
I may very well and unintentionally go away from all that I see and desire for my life.
Because I don’t know what the future holds, I don’t know how could any of us overcome the challenges it brings or how to take the unexpected opportunities that gives while maintaining a state of peace, joy, hope and love.
I declare my whole life completely dependent on the great Lord of all.
The only one who knows my past, present and future, all at once.
The one who’s given even his own life and his own son to keep me safe and prosperous.
Oh I pray that I will seek Him everyday. “One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.”
Psalms 27:4 NIV
