I'm really big on trying to find my purpose and discover why I am here on Earth. Surely I do not believe we are all here to work and die. I filled my agenda for the next few years with so many things to do with my career, but I did not feel complete. The only reason I can think of to be true is that fact the one thing was missing..GOD. It’s not that I am taking him out of my life, and it’s not that he will not be with me each step of the way. In fact I believe he placed these goals in my heart as part of my journey. The issue I see is, is my time with him going to suffer? Will I neglect this blog? Will I stop going to church every week? Will I have time to pray and read my bible?
That all sacred me to death and the Lord spoke to me softly and said “What good is it for you to gain the whole world, yet forfeit your soul” (Mark 8:39). That verse is basically saying yes Kylie you can go on to be the best nurse in the east coast, you can become a best-selling author, and you can travel the entire planet, but if you neglect getting to know me what good is it? When I get to the pearly gates will God say “good job on your Masters and all the other things you have accomplished, NO! He’s worried about my spirit and my soul just like he’s worried about yours.
He’s not concerned rather you can sing, act, sell houses, or make a good speech; he wants to know that you are souled out for him and you want to spend eternity with him more than obtain another degree. Now I'm not saying it’s not good to want to be somebody in life or not want nice things because we all do, however, God comes first. I’ll say it again.. GOD COMES FIRST. He made all this “stuff” we like and he can take it all away. Don’t get so hung up on your 2015 goals, you neglect the plans and goals God has for you.
This week I pray you get serious before God and ask him to create a hunger for him in you so bad, that if you were not able to get another degree, boo, job, or check you would be fine. It’s not easy, but this world is not ours and we need to be more and more detached from it, and more hooked on Christ who grants us the key to eternity.
Happy Sunday, thank you for reading. Any questions comments or concerns, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also I think each Wednesday or Thursday I am going to do an “Instagram Prayer” I guess you can call it. This past week I did one by mistake and it was great. It may sound weird, but I had no idea so many men and women just want someone to talk to God on their behalf. It was awesome and I felt great after so I'm going to do it weekly. You can also send me your personal prayers through this site. Lastly if you have not purchased my new book “God Set Me Up”, you need to get it like ASAP. I am almost sold out and you need to be a part of what many are calling “a life changing read”!
Thanks again and I pray you have a good Sunday.
