When you step into eternity and stand before God there will be no one beside you to account for what you did with your gifts, talents and dreams.
Your parents, your kids, your friends, your spouse might be in the crowd, but you’ll be standing there solo.
“I meant to write that book God, but my parents, husband, kids, and friends kept me from it!”
You think that’ll fly? (Don’t misunderstand. I’m not saying God is going to be angry. But there might be some sadness as you think about what might have been.)
“ I wanted to take that trip, start that friendship, mend that relationship, volunteer at that organization …”
I think we all have a purpose. A destiny. A specific task God has told us to take action on. But we get distracted. Okay, I know you don’t. But I do. All the time.
I have to remind myself almost daily to block out all the things others are asking me to do—tell them no—and focus on my calling.
Is that selfishness? No it’s obedience.
Most of my life I haven’t been obedient to my calling. I’ve let myself down. I’ve let God down. But it’s changing. These days I’m learning to take more action every day.
How ’bout you?
