How do I view life?

The latest series at my church is the 7 Building Blocks.  We started with Jesus is First.  Well last Sunday was about God's Word and how it defines our worldview.

Well of course this took me back to years ago when the world's view was my view.  I lived like everyone else in the world lives.  That's what I was lead to believe anyway.  So that's all I knew and it wasn't really working out as I thought it would.  I remember how much my life depended on others and not on God.  I realize now how little I knew. 

But God.. He's never left my side.  No matter what I go through in life, He's always here for me.  My best day alone was nothing compared to my absolute worst day with God.  My worst day was when my father died.  I am crying tears now just thinking about it.  It was on that day He took me...He gave me hope.  As bad as it was and is, He gives me more than I'll ever deserve.

So how do I view life?  My life, my journey has to be more about Him and not me. 

I want my life to depend on God.  I don't want to do any of this without Him.  I honestly cannot do it without Him.  So when I take my eyes off eternity (HUGE), I feel the world coming down around me.  And this world is temporary. I'll keep my eyes on Him for all eternity.  No matter where I go or what I do, I will always call on Him.

And no, I'm not perfect.  I share this because if there's someone out there that doesn't know Jesus, I want that person to know they're not alone.  No one is perfect.  I get strength from Him.  I am here today because of Him.  So we take what we have, right where we are and give it all to Him.  Don't be afraid to live.  Life begins when we accept Him who has called us.
