#15 Point Your Life

20 Sep

God’s Word:  Proverbs 23:19-21

God’s Message to Me:

What direction is your life headed?  You have the freedom to make your own choices and point your life in whatever direction interests you.  I created you with inborn interests and passions.  It is up to you to choose how to put those to work.  I gave them to you to use for the good of humanity.

What direction have you pointed your interests and passions?  Be careful to not become inward focused and use them just to please yourself—to indulge yourself.  The temptation is to fritter your time away in fruitless pursuits—eating and drinking to excess.  You are the only one who can choose the direction your life is pointing.

Consider where your life is pointed today and look ahead to see what the end result will be.  The person who focuses their life on self pleasure will end up on skid row, in a stupor and dressed in rags.  The one who points their life’s interests and passions into helping humanity will end up happy and fulfilled.  The choice is yours!

God’s Question to Me:  Will you stop and access the direction your life is headed and be sure that is the direction you really want to go?

God’s Promise to Me:  To those who use their interests and passions, that I have given them, to bless others will have a joy unspeakable.

My Song to God:   Give Them all to Jesus

Are you tired of chasing pretty rainbows?
Are you tired of spinning round and round?
Wrap up all those shattered dreams of your life
And at the feet of Jesus, lay them down.

Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus
Shattered dreams, wounded hearts, and broken toys.
Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus
And He will turn your sorrows into joy.

He never said you only see sunshine,
He never said there would be no rain.
He only promised a heart full of singing
About the very thing that once brought pain.

Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus
Shattered dreams, wounded hearts, and broken toys.
Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus
And He will turn your sorrows into joy.
