21: Who let the dogs out?
22: I wanted to say something profound or something humorous. But somehow, despite the stream of loud, chatty words that are forever pouring from my mouth, when I sat to pen something down, absolutely nothing came to mind...nothing. So instead I am going to expound on something that has encouraged me as I seek the Lord's will for my life. Since I am graduating early, many people come to me and ask, "What do you want to do with your life? What do you want to be? For what are you going to school?" I have even heard, "You can do anything you want to do, you can be anything you want to be, the sky is the limit!" Well, I have found a slight flaw in that theory. They always miss One thing. The lyrics to the song I sang for my graduation perfectly depict what I am trying to say. "With every step I take, with every move I make Let Your Holy Spirit be my guide Let me alway heed Your voice, when I have to make a choice I want Your perfect will for my life." That is what they always forget! Nothing of what I have accomplished to this day would have been possible without God leading me every step of the way. So whatever my goals are in life, I'll keep this one thing in mind: I cannot do anything I want to do. I can not be anything I want to be. And the sky, it is just a limitation. But I can do anything He wants me to do! I can be anything He wants me to be! And as a Christian, the sky, it's the starting line. It's Heaven that's our Goal!
