Destination Heaven

Whatever is going on in our lives, whatever conflict or stress we may be dealing with, God provides us with answers.  Most are very simple.  They are healing gifts from above.  This is one of them.

Looking Upward
Moments like this remind me to open my eyes and re-focus my energy on Him.  No matter what is going on in my life, He is with me and I will never be alone.  There IS good in the world.  God has plans for me.
It is so easy to allow negativity to creep its way into my life.  Sometimes, it's difficult to understand things like homelessness, how drug abuse has affected almost every family I work with, why my grandpa can't remember who I am, whether or not I'm supposed to have a baby and why I continually struggle with knowing my life's purpose.
When I look at this photograph, I am reminded of my destination.  My purpose in life is to be the best woman I know how to be as my ultimate goal is to climb my way into Heaven.  To ascend into the place that is my home.  The place where I belong.  When we know our destination, we're free to enjoy the journey that much more.

  1. This is so true. We so easily forget we were created to be in relationship w/ God, and the rest is secondary. I heard a quote recently: When the purpose is unknown, abuse is inevitable. When we don't know our purpose (to honor/love God and others), we use things/people for our OWN purpose, and that's where we hurt people and ourselves. Thanks for coming by the Ballpark leaving kind remarks. :-)

  2. Beautiful! I am always reminded that I need never feel alone because He is always with me. Thank you, Jaime, for this beautiful post.
