Are you still looking for your purpose in life? Or maybe you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders. Maybe you expect things to go a certain way based on past experience. Or, like me, you are trying to follow some type of “formula for success”, but always seem to come up short.

If any of the above apply to you, you’ve come to the right place.

When I hit my 30’s, my life was far from what I thought it would be by that time. On the outside I smiled and looked good: I was blessed with a good family and friends, and a thriving career. Yet, I felt empty inside – something was missing. And I struggled with the weight of every single choice I made, always trying to get it right, because, you know, the right choice would always lead to the perfect outcome. My “resume” included two failed marriages, no children that I always longed for, and several failed relationships. I knew there had to be more, but I had no idea where to find it.

Then through a series of events I can only describe as miraculous and perfectly timed, I met Jesus. Turns out it wasn’t something I needed, it was Someone!

As I’ve invested time and effort in my relationship with Jesus over the years, I’ve learned that life is not about following formulas or rules, or figuring things out, or even getting it right. It’s about a daily walk with Him, hand in hand, choosing as He leads. It’s about handing the reins of your life over to Someone who cares about you more than anyone else in the world, and Who can do a far better job running your life than you ever could. With Jesus, I found everything I had been seeking.

No matter where you are in your life, Jesus longs to be closer to you. Will you join me on my journey?

We all make choices. Today I looked back over many choices I’ve made over my lifetime, including the most important choice I’ve ever made. I pondered how all our choices impact our lives in big ways and small.
