Search For Greatness

Be very careful, then, how you live -- not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
-- Ephesians 5:15
Light is a marvelous thing. When it enters an area, it is not the light that you see, but the things that are illuminated. Wisdom too is great. Wisdom sees things for they really are. Wisdom is about using what you have and using it to your fullest, making the most of opportunities.
Hear the Good News, we are called, meant, to live our life to the fullest. Each and every day you have choices. Those choices require our wisdom and an understanding of God. As God is a part of us, we can feel how He leads us along the path of Life. And it is a good thing that God plays such a role in our life, because the world we live in is full of opportunities that can lead us down path that spirals into emptiness and a feeling of being lost and unfulfilled. But God in His Love, His Grace and his Faithfulness is there with us to empower us to lead us down a path that leads to growth and wholeness. Therefore live a life that is full of love, wisdom and strengthens your character. Let people see not only you when you live, but let them see God illuminated in you.
Lord, Fill me with Your wisdom. Create in my heart a strength that illuminates not only my life but my path and the path of others. Help me make the choices I need to make in life and as other paths appear before me, give me the wisdom to know where to go and what to do. In the name of Jesus my Lord, I pray. Amen.
