One tremendous advantage of having a relationship with the Creator of the universe is that my life can have meaning far beyond the relatively short time I am in this world. He has the proper perspective to direct me to the things that will use my life for the best effect.
I pity those who think they are really all alone in this world. Our life has no true value in the long run if it is nothing more than just a batch of chemicals.
I would encourage any of you reading this to work on your own life mission and goal statements, but to make sure those are built on a foundation of performing the will of the One who made it all.
