Life is the aspect of existence that processes,


 acts, reacts, evaluates, and evolves through growth.

Life is very brief and unpredictable

and can blindside us in a heartbeat.

As we transition into a more knowledgeable, 

experienced person... we start looking at what is really 

important in our lives.

Being reminded of our own mortality can lead us to 


analyze our lives and seek deeper meaning to it all.

Life  can bring us to a place of humbling 

and grounding where we come to realize there is 

something greater than the material world we inhabit. We 

sense, at some point in our lives, that there is something 

important for us to do, or learn, or experience. We 

understand that there has to be something more than just 

living day to day.

Every day is a gift, a fresh start, 

and an opportunity to learn, to live,


and to grow in grace!


As we grow in awareness, we seek to know truth, that 

deeper meaning to life, and what it is all about. 


We seek our truth, to fulfill our purpose, 

to somehow have our lives make sense 

in the context of everything that is going on 

in the world. 


We ask ourselves all-important questions, such as: 

What is my mastery and purpose in life?
Our purpose in life is to make the most of our time

 here on earth, to complete our life plan, 

and to learn the lessons included in our life plan. 


We believe, when we see life as a journey of learning 

and embrace the concept of being lifelong students… 

we open ourselves up to a more enlightened 

and productive life.

God created us with a


 “Spiritual need,” 


which includes the desire to find meaning in life.

According to the Scriptures...

our purpose in life is to build a 

personal and loving relationship

 with God.

Our enjoyment of life is a by-product of 


seeking to please God.

God values us as precious treasures, 


capable of honoring Him with our bodies and spirits.



We are created in God's image 

for an intimate relationship with God.

More important than any human relationship 


is our relationship with God.


All other relationships are merely symbols of it...


 but they pale in comparison.



The greatest joy for every person, 


and for every relationship is knowing


 that God is within us. 


Despite our corruption, God still remains in us. 



Think about how empty, unfulfilled, 


and restless we would be without God.



Having a personal relationship, with God, 

is the only thing that will ultimately satisfy 

and quench our souls. 


To have a personal relationship with God 

is the greatest decision we will ever make!

No matter what title one holds, 

or how much one has in their bank account,

 or where they live or came from...  

the truly good life comes from 

knowing and loving God 

and having God’s blessing upon us.


God is reality... 


and mankind is made in the image


 of God.


Not a single human being, by his own efforts,


is able to measure up to the glory of God.


God’s glory is His splendor, 


the outward display of His attributes.

 


God desires that we share that splendor.


We were created to show the world 


how precious. awesome, amazing, 


and deeply satisfying God is.



Every day there are opportunities to be the hands, 


the warm smile and or/ greeting, the listening ears, 


and feet of Jesus to those around us.



We bear the responsibility of being used of God 


as ambassadors for Christ. 



We have a marvelous opportunity of demonstrating 


to the world what Jesus might look like… 


and doing what Jesus would have done... 


were He to walk the earth, today.



Who knows, just merely smiling and acknowledging 


another... could turn a life around. 


Think about it… one could possibly


come to know Jesus... 


by watching us!


Think about it:


People are suffering and in desperate need of God's love. 


Sometimes, we may be the only exposure 


one will have to the love of God. 


The world is hurting, 


and we can be a light.

As believers the worse we will endure is criticism


 for loving God, who walked as a Man...


and changed the world.

We believe life is a herculean journey filled with lessons


that will challenge and test our courage,


 strength, integrity, and faith.



We believe as we journey through life...


we may stumble upon our fair share of hardships


and heartaches, but in God's strength...


we shall overcome.

Seeking and realizing our life's purpose


can help us to move with greater focus and clarity 


every day of our life.


Many people live their lives 


without ever reflecting on life itself...


or its meaning for them.



Their lives may be filled with all kinds of activities;


yet, they don't realize the overall purpose

or have a clear idea of why they exist.


It is not at all satisfying to think


our lives have no more meaning than just


being born... 


living a short while...


 then dying.

The purpose of our time on earth is not to secure 


possessions, acquire prestige and distinctiveness, 


garner success, or realize worldly contentment. 


Those are secondary arguments.



The primary mission in life is to 


"Seek First the Kingdom of God 


and His righteousness,"


 as Jesus said 


in His Sermon on the Mount 


(Matthew 6:33). 



The verse’s meaning is as direct as it sounds. 


We are to seek the things of God 


as a priority 


over the things of the world.



One may succeed in many worldly areas, 

like methods and good management principles, 

financial status, talents, physical appearance, 

or a host of many other accomplishments, 

but we must be careful never 

to become victims of ego, status, and materialism. 

These snares could cause one to neglect 

seeking first God's Kingdom...

and take all of the glory for oneself. 

Even after God has saved us, 


we’re still prone to take credit for things 


that are due completely to God's grace.

But Seek First the Kingdom of God


 and His righteousness, 


and all these things will be added to you. 


(Matthew 6:33)

This is the Will of God for our life,


 that we...


Seek First the Kingdom of God 


and His righteousness. 




God’s Will for our life


 is that we live for Him! 



That we follow and serve Him.




That we be righteous. 




That we grow to know and love Him 


more and more each day. 




That we become more like Him.


As the Scriptures remind us,


“The man who finds life


will find it through trusting God.”


God is our Life,


the very breath of our soul.

May we allow God to guide our steps


 in all matters of life. 


God's guidance is infinitely better


 than we could ever do.—


Psalm 32:8.

When we seek God and pursue God's Will for our lives, 


with our whole heart, we will see life and live life from a 


higher perspective.

According to Scripture,


we exist in order to know God,


to do God's Will, and bring glory to God.




We believe knowing God 


brings real purpose to one's life.


We believe each of us has a purpose,


 a specific life plan,


a reason for being here...


and our part is to walk in our calling...


so that we complete that plan.

Dear God, whatever it takes, align our desires with Yours, 

so that our lives are aligned with your purposes. 

Let Your Will be done through us.

When we are aligned with God's Way, 


Will, and Timing in our lives... 


our ability to see and realize the supernatural 


power of God will be clearer.


We believe what gives life true meaning is God Himself.


We believe one can begin to realize a very meaningful 

life as one comes to realize that God is alive, real,

and the reason for our existence!

Being alive is to evolve into the complete person 

we were created to be.

 

Let us not wait till life's brief days are done

 before we start 

to realize how fast life has been passing us by. 

Should this be the case, 

our final moment may well be one of regret on 

What may have been...

instead of a sense of contentment over 

what has been... and is being done.

Our time on earth has purpose,

it has meaning.

 Let us not squander the precious seconds of our lives. 

Every minute of our lives should be savored.

 

May we grow, serve, and strive to do our very best to make the most of our lives each day.   

The heart of man plans his way,

but God establishes his steps.  

Proverbs 16:9
