Is there a reason to be excited about your life?
That’s the question I have been meditating on for the past couple of days. My country has been
going through a tough couple of weeks and it has been hard to see a future when things look so dark.
But the darkness is not only in Zimbabwe, it’s all over the world. And the darkness wants to get us
off our game. It wants us so discouraged that we lose hope. But we need to keep trusting no matter
But it’s not just the tough times in my country that made me think about “what my life could be”
As I looked at my weaknesses, the things I am supposed to be doing that I am not doing, and
flaws that are too many to mention I got discouraged. I have messed up so much. I have blind spots
that I am relying on God to expose. With all those things against me I found myself asking,
Can I really be excited about my life with all the flaws that I have?
That kind of question demands an answer and an answer is what I got.
I do have a reason to be excited about my life because God is in it.
Not only is He in it but He created it. He is the author of my story. I have every reason to be
excited about my life. I need to pump myself up, raise the expectation, because He is in control.
He has crazy things in store for me. His word says,
“Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this.
He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream,
and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for His miraculous power
constantly energized you.”
Ephesians 3:20, 21
You may think there is nothing to get excited about in your life but that’s not true. Because God
is at the helm you can expect an amazing life even though things may be hard now.
Nothing may be working for you at the moment but remember this,
Keep trusting God. Hold on to His promises. Expect Him to move on your behalf and yes,
You have a reason to be excited about your life….. because He is in it.
Blessings to you friends.
