We all have a certain amount of drama in our lives. With the invention of the internet and instant news, we’ve all become an active part in the drama that is playing out all around us. We can become disillusioned by it, angry, frustrated and even hopeless. Or we can walk away from it and search for something more positive to fill our time.
We are living out a story to pass on as a legacy to those we leave behind. Did you ever think of it that way? The lives we live today will represent us when we die. What people remember most about us – what our accomplishments were – what we believed in – what we contributed to society.
We all have different roles in the scheme of things. We all serve a purpose in progressing the story. We are not merely pawns on a chess board, but living, breathing human beings with strong emotions and deep beliefs.
What is your purpose in life? Do you have goals that will determine your future? Do you live for today or is your focus on the hereafter? Maybe you spend too much time dwelling on the past or things that you have no power over. We all have times when we think we have control over our lives – that we determine our futures – that we can go it alone.
We’re not merely characters in a play. God has a wonderful plan for everyone in creation. His direction – His wisdom – His enduring love and grace – are all elements which can give us purpose. He will guide us through trials, fear and doubt. He will lift us out of the pit of depression. He will protect us when the world seems too difficult for us to understand. Our God is an awesome God. He is our greatest heritage. Pass it on!
There will always be drama in life, but the most dramatic thing ever to have happened was God’s love for His creation and His payment to redeem it. That’s real drama!
