I was listening to "the message" one day on Sirius XM when a commentary from Matthew West came on about one of his songs. He had throat surgery when he was just getting his musical career started and had no idea if he'd be able to sing ever again. He felt everything was lost, everything he had to look forward to, he felt he had nothing. I remember him saying he doesn't think people really understand giving God everything until they have absolutely nothing. I felt so connected to his experience because the exact same experience happened to myself. I felt I had nothing, so I gave Him all of me. Dying to self, means gaining my life. Now, even though there are trials and mistakes in my life, it has never been so fruitful or happy or blessed. I see and appreciate things now I never even glanced at before.

Now, looking back I see His perfect plan. One small part of it was I was able to travel and see parts of the world other than America and it really opened my eyes even further. Realizing this world isn't about me, it's not population 1, it's population 7 billion in my world. Every CEO, every beggar, every friend, and every foe should be loved. Because after all, wasn't I was given love by a perfect One whom I should have been considered a foe and didn't deserve the attention of at all?! Wasn't I blessed abundantly with attention and love and given an experience that made my choice to trust Him easy when it could have been made hard?!

People need this love, people crave this love. Giving everyone AT LEAST a small taste of this love is what my life is about. What's yours about?

A beautiful song that reminds me of my purpose...it is also by Matthew West:

  • Mood: Compassion
  • Playing: Portal 2
I spent all that time thinking there's no way he existed, made myself believe there was nothing better in store for me. Yet he exists, he has for awhile and now he's my gift from above. It took many months, but yes, I finally believe in love once again. :rose:

And let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary.
-Galatians 6:9

I stand here today
So far from the same
It's hard to move on without you
So my God fill these spaces left in me
I'm so near to lost but I'm not alone
