Life is full of questions, but what questions do I truly want answered that have meaning to me. What questions if I received the answers to would change me and the way I live my life? Deep questions from within me that my very soul, the essence of who I am, cries out to understand.
The only questions that I need answers too are…Who am I? How did I get here? What am I to do here on this earth? Where am I going when I die?
Are there 5 people either alive or dead that I would want to spend time with? People I admire; people that have touched the world and me?
The answer is no. There is only one person who continues to come to mind that has touched the world and me personally.

…He became a baby born of a virgin
…He became the God/Man
…He commanded a storm to be still and walked on water
… He healed the sick and the lame
…He healed the deaf, the dumb and the blind
…He created limbs where none existed

…He commanded fallen angels / demons to come out of people
…He raised the dead and gave them life

I do not know what the future holds …But I do know who holds
the future in His Hands ! And He is coming back again soon !
There is no one like Him. Only He commands my interest. Only He can answer those question’s that used to torment my soul:
Who am I? I am a child of God; Jesus is my Lord, and my King. I was given to Jesus by God as a love gift. I am one of His sheep.
How did I get here? God said in Psalm 139 vs 13 that He knew me before I was in my Mothers womb in eternity past. God said in Romans 8 vs.29, that whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become a believer in His Son Jesus.
What am I to do here on earth? I am to live out the “Great Commission”: To make disciples of all nations, teaching people about the word of God; telling all the Good News of John 3:16.
Where am I going when I die? Because Jesus died for my sins and He was resurrected, and He is alive today; I too will live forever with Him in heaven because I accepted Him as my Lord and Savior.
“Because He lives” are the 3 small words I base my entire existence upon. They form a foundation of how I should be witnessing to those all around me.
God is looking for those that seek Him. Today there are very few people that are truly seeking Him. Throughout the Old and New Testaments only one message clearly comes through.
That there have always been and always will be the many and the few,
the lost and the found.
History is rooted in time, but the time is coming when time will be no more.
