Who or What is lord of your life?

Whether or not we want to admit it we all have something or someone which pushes us and propels us into doing and achieving and being.

Who is the motivator behind your achievements? What is the driving force behind your determination?

Some of us are trying to prove to parents that we can do it. Some of us are trying to prove to that "annoying relative" that see, I can do it. Some of us are trying to prove to friends and even enemies that " thats right bitch, I can so it!" Some of us are driven by greed, money, desperation, jealousy or even bitterness. Then again some of us are driven by an inherent desire to succeed.

Whatever it is that drives you . This is what is lord of your life.

In the initial stages these drives or motivators will lead to happiness and contentment, but over a period of time usually after years, we suddenly discover that " this" . What ever "this" is , is just not enough.
This "thing" does not fulfil you anymore and usually you begin to quesiton life, your purpose, your decisions,
your relationships - in short you begin to beat up on this " thing".
It's like beating a dead horse. You will never get answers there.

Your answers cannot come from self but you must seek after God. Begin to read about him, begin to pray to him, begin to seek a personal relationship with him. Begin to ask him to be your friend.

What's that you say, the God you heard about cannot be a friend.

Well, that's where you are wrong because, all God seeks is a sincere heart and for someone to love him with all their heart, all their mind , all their soul and to love your neighbour as yourself.

What's that i hear, this God is asking to much. Well, I don't think so because the only way you would fail in doing this is if you try to do it on your own. So, ok God you want love. I'll give it to you. No, you can never love God that way.

You must surrender. Surrender, you say, I'm not in a battle. Well in fact you are. It's a battle of your will for your life and God's willl for your life.

So first thing you have to do is to give him your plans, dreams, desires, regrets, failures, disappointments, obsessions - in short give him everything and then and only then will you have peace and God's all powerful love.

It's impossible you say. Stop trying to do it on your own. Give everything to Jesus.
Everything? Yes, everything.

Can you stand to lose everything?
See you tomorrom.
