Organizing the Inside – Day 228 She Finally Found The Place

But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus–the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.  Acts 20:24 (NLT)

Lord, are we there yet? Are we there yet?
For so long she searched for the place. She knew in her heart for years she really wasn’t there. She thought surely this can’t be the place, because something just doesn’t seem right. She heard others talk about the beauty of this place, and concluded this place is in a far and distant land. She reasoned that one would first have to die to go there. She thought this place sounded in some ways like you might imagine heaven to be. It was described to her as a place where joy, peace, love and contentment reside.

God gave people ideas, and passion, gifts and talent and dreams too, as a means by which He’d use to guide them there. Only those who embraced serving others in love could go there. Once there you never want to leave. You’d find everything you needed there and so much more. Everyone who lives there is abundantly provided for; yes, there is much overflow.

Upon arrival she simply couldn’t understand why she allowed so many things to detain her. It became clear that people, fear, foolishness, anger, greed and self-centeredness each played a part in delaying her arrival.

She looked up and saw that the windows of heaven were open and all that poured out almost took her breath away. She found the place that she’d searched for all those years.  Oh yes, it’s true she found the place where all the pieces seemed to fit together. She better understood the pain of her past, and the future no longer frightened her. She finally found “the place” right there in the center of God’s will; she discovered His purpose and plan for her life.

Have you discovered “the place”? God has a purpose and plan for your life. We’d love to hear a bit of your story.
