Some years ago I was in a quandary about knowing exactly what the Lord wanted me to do with my life. I was earnestly groaning from within and reaching out to Him with expectations of getting an answer from Him.
Well after about five hours of intensity I finally got my answer in no uncertain terms.
Without going into the details of what exactly transpired, my answer from Him came and it was simple and straight to the point:
In His graciousness He revealed the following to me:
Frank I created the earth for you to enjoy!
Now go where you want to go, and do what you want to do, with me living in your heart!
This totally freed me from a religious bondage of the work of the ministry that I was in and allowed me to begin enjoying life as He intended for me to do so.
Does this means that I have abandoned my love for Him for earthy desires? Absolutely not!
What it means is that each day we (The Lord and I) walk together and enjoy not only His creation, but also the people He loves so dearly.
