I just returned from a hog hunt in Texas. The hunt was quite successful until the last day when my son-in-law lost his father to a massive heart attack. He was on the hunt with us after having had several heart attacks in recent months. He might have even been a bit dishonest about how well he felt in order to have his son bring him on the hunt he had dreamed about for years. He fulfilled his bucket list at a high risk to his health. I applaud his actions as I too leave my death in God’s hands while keeping my life in mine.
Do you have drive? Are there any dreams you have that are so clear and large that you are driven to a high risk? The truth about life is “NO RISK; NO REWARD”. If the length of your life is more important than the quality of it than it is driven by fear and not God. I have been driven my whole life. Before I was rewarded with my new life I was driven by fear and today I am driven by love. I love my life and am always looking for new opportunities for me, my family and anyone else who is interested in riding along.
One is not really living if one is living in fear. Being driven by love and God fills me with wonder and awe; the two emotions that God rewards me with. I am driven to know God and the universe God has rewarded me to experience. My life is a result of courageously moving forward through fear knowing that fear is merely an illusion that dissipated upon confrontation. Find your drive by losing your fear. Pray and meditate for God’s direction and care. If you want to know what drives you remember…
Your Life is PERFECT!
