Equipping Your Reimagine Journey
We divide and categorize people in many ways – politically, racially, economically, denominationally, geographically. The Bible divides people into two groups – those who follow God’s will and those who don’t. Many use their God-given freedom of choice to choose their own way. My granddaughter graduates from college soon. She recently shared with me her feelings of doing something different with her life than her college major prepared her to do. My response was that you do what you feel God is leading you to do and watch to see how everything you’ve thought was God’s will (including a college major) is used by God in your future. Examples of this truth are legion. God has a plan, a purpose for your life. Accept and follow, or reject and refuse to follow. The Bible says it this way: “The Lord of hosts has purposed, and who will annul it? His hand is stretched out, and who will turn it back” (Isaiah 14:27)? Written by Bo and Dick Baker for a youth camp in the mid-1950s, “His Way . . . Mine” became a favorite for many a youth and young adult who discovered God’s will for their life, myself included:
“Now in His will my soul finds life worth living
Each day new blessings from above
Tho’ shadows come and valley’s seem unending
Still I know He makes a way for me.”
