The Sandbox Writing Challenge this week asks us, what is the one thing you want most out of life?
If there was one thing I could have out of life it would be that all people of the world could play nicely in the sandbox. I have become a broken record on this, folks, and we still don’t get it!! We are here for one purpose- Relationships!! Relationships with one another and relationships with our creator’s Son, Jesus Christ. That’s it. If we don’t get that, we don’t get the purpose of life.
99.9% of the planet wants money, success, a life with no pain, the easy road, but that is not what life is about. We grow in pain. We fight through pain. The refiner’s fire burns out the impurities of our soul. Without it, we are not as pure as we could be. Take joy in the hard times of life. Focus and fight through them and you will grow.
What do I want most out of life? For an unbelieving world to believe in the amazing Grace of Jesus Christ. And when we have it, I want those who have it to share it with anyone they come in contact with. We have a world that says some people have this amazing grace and then they don’t give it to others, why? I want a world where those who truly know and believe in Jesus to actually, whole-heartedly live it out in every single second of their life. I am still a work in progress at this too, so let’s encourage one another and be loving as we can be. That will change the world.
