As I prepare for a trip to California, I have 15 minutes to write today’s devotional. I am not even sure what to write as it is currently 3:30 AM and I’m rushing around like a crazy lady to finish packing. And then, the light bulb goes on; why not chat about our destination. Yes!
Where are you headed in life? Not just today, but the next day and the next day and right on to eter…nity. What makes you put one foot in front of the other every day; what makes life worth living? Good question.
Each day we are gifted 24 hours to determine our destination. Jobs, dropping kids at daycare, even walking to the mailbox is a destination. For the most part, we maneuver through our days with little thought about where we are headed. Have ever driven a car, arrived at your destination, and wondered how in the heck you got there? The redundancy of the drive mesmerizes us and we fail to notice our surroundings; sad, but true.
But, what if you knew this was your last day on earth. Would your destination change, would you still fail to notice your surroundings? My guess is our choice of destination would immediately change and I am fairly certain we would embrace every moment with a new found passion. In those 24-hours our life would be purpose driven.
Maybe it is time to stop wandering around (in our faith) and create a roadmap to our final destination. You can’t move forward if you don’t know where you are going. Having a purpose driven life (an eternal destination) gives us hope and helps us find peace and joy.
“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen (the final destination). For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18
