You know the rules by now... Let's go!
Only on hot, sunny days-- in moments of my own-- have I trained myself to let it all go. I feel free from my mind in the present. Free to remember.
My mind takes me back to a place, sitting under a palm tree on my own at Bible College. Watching the clouds. Wondering where God would take my life. Something inside me always tried to call me away from where I was at, no matter where I was. Somehow, I was always ready to go.
That "something" was always a good feeling, it was never bad. Other people saw my desire to get away as me trying to escape the situation I was in. How could I articulate to them that I wasn't trying to escape? I felt that something calling inside of me; leading me from place to place. It was always to a safe place, and just in time. When it was my time to leave, that something would guide me safely away.
Reminiscing, now, I remember this calling inside of me felt just like a mission. I had a purpose at each place I was. It's like life is a video game... I had to go through each level. Saving a friend, assisting a prince to find their princess, fighting a dragon, etc. Each place I felt lead to, I had a reason to be there. Even if I did not see it until 5 years later. 10 years. I am reminded when I look back.
My life (in my eyes) is a series of events and purposes. There is a reason behind each moment. I choose to always accept my mission! It fulfills my life, and makes my Saviour happy. I'm not perfect, and sometimes I may not hear correctly. Or don't listen at all. Those are things I am working on.
I am most happy when I think back on the times I followed that Voice, and can clearly see a purpose for why I was where I was. When I remember those times in the past, I am happy in the present.
