What if destiny isn’t a place I reach in ministry, but the journey towards the fullness of oneness with my Jesus? The fullness of my heart in love, devotion, intimacy and obedience?
Is there any other way to life? Certainly not. All else is but a shadow to this one singular pursuit.
My heart strays often to my other lovers. Sometimes they are all I can see, and they become my reality.
But deep down inside, I long for One above all. How can I not? He is who I was made for, and in Him I come alive the most.
I know that this life will be one where my “yes” to the Lord will be tested over and over again. There are moments when my love for Jesus feels like a fiery flame that cannot be quenched. At other times, and this happens more than I dare to confess, my love feels so weak. I am overwhelmed by the world and I feel so incapable of holding firm to the resolves that I make during moments of heightened passion. If not for the Divine Grace that holds on to me I would have given up and fallen away a long long time ago.
Yet, it is worth declaring that through these highs and lows that I swing back and forth from, my heart for Him remains true. My love for Him has always, always been real, even in the moments when I am the weakest. I am not ashamed to say so because there is no lie in my words.
And so over and over again I will come in humility and sing, even when my heart is so broken and all I can offer is the small hidden part of it that has pledged everlasting love to Him.
This is the pilgrimage of my heart and the destiny of my life. This journey is one that I will give myself to for the rest my days, no matter how many times I break and fall. I know that one day it will be fulfilled in all entirety when I see – face to face – my Lord shining before me in all Glory, Beauty and Light.
“All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.”
“For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.”
Romans 11:36 // Colossians 1:16-17
Jesus is the point of my life.
