Thoughts of a man on an intimate journey into Father God (or Daddy God as I more affectionatly call Him.)

DESTINY - It's a well used word. Most people sense they have some kind of destiny - but personally I didn't understand exactly how I was to reach mine.
I was thinking about destiny one day and the Lord spoke these three words to my heart -"Destiny is today."
My thinking about destiny went something like this: If I continue to grow with the Lord and allow Him to direct my life - by the time I finish my life I may reach my destiny. But God said something much different to me that day. He was saying I live my destiny in the "present." He has a plan for today and if I am walking in the Spirit today (walking with my heart opened to Him and connected with Him),then I am living my destiny today!
It's simple but powerful - "destiny is today!"
So be encouraged - your life has great meaning. Yes, God has purpose for everyone He has created. Meditate on the following words from Psalm 139:13-18a:
"You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous — how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.
They cannot be numbered!
I can’t even count them;
they outnumber the grains of sand!"
I am a follower of Christ with a passion to know Him more intimately. I am one of the most blessed men in the world - to be a child of God, to be married to Kathy and to have a wonderful daughter, son in law and two precious grandsons. And to be called pastor of a local expression of the body of Christ (Agape Church of White County- my church family)! www.agapechurch.com
