At this point I am nowhere near where I want to be. I am not perfect and I wouldn't even attempt to claim to be. The goal I have for myself is to strive to be as close as possible to where God wants me to be. It's the goal that we should all have...to be as much like Christ as we can be. I mean really who wouldn't want to live their life like God? God has created us to live in His image. It's in each and every one of us. We must be willing to give up everything to live that life whether it seems like what we want or not. God will shape our lives how He wants, but with that said we have the choice to stay in control and live our own lives how we want or to trust Him and follow His plan. Even when we think we are in control of our lives we really aren't, so why fight it? We must never stop running or straining ourselves, in hopes of one day winning the race and getting the prize!
