I tend to be a deep thinker-believe it or not. SO today on my birthday---I am thinking about why was I born?
The answer is really quite simple--
To glorify God and give Him good pleasure...
It is not about us---
It never was and never will be
the ONLY peace will come from serving Him by serving others
I think about the times in my life that I have been the happiest--most joyful---most content--at peace--
It ALWAYS revolved around Service---dying to self----putting others first---I have never been happy, joyful, content or peaceful when seeking what makes ME happy--
SO as I reflect and as I pray my birthday prayer---my desire is to put God first---look to Him--listen to Him and be open to what he places before me and in my path---and then have the courage and energy to tackle that task-
There is no other reason to be here---but to give Him great pleasure & bless His Holy Name.
