I’ve been asking myself this question all day (yesterday): what kind of person do I want to become? It’s so interesting to me how human everyone in my life becomes the older I get. These people that I look up to are just regular people with good days and bad days. Also, the older I get, the more I see the impact of even the smallest choices. It can become overwhelming. However, life can also be so enjoyable.
The truth is, I am here, and my life has a purpose. That purpose is to live in relationship with God and as a result shine His light to those around me. I want to be so filled with joy that God’s contagious peace and love will spread around me like an epidemic.
I don’t want to live my life defined by my fear and failures. I don’t want to live indebted to the opinions and approval of others. I sing, dance, and play for an audience of One. I long for His confidence, poise and grace. Can I be a woman like that? I’m certainly praying so.
I want to make my life count and the minutes and hours of every day worth it. I pray that God will use my skills, personality, and smile to bring Him glory through my life. I want to live like this all the time: awake, aware, and alive.
Could there be more to this life than we’ve been living? I’m pretty sure we all know it deep inside. Are you ready for this? I’m divin’ in!
