This life that I live is filled
with both pleasure and pain.
But the reason I am here
is to know the LORD who reigns.
Knowing Him is my purpose.
Knowing Him meets my needs.
He created me for love;
On His love my spirit feeds.
He has given me new life.
He has given me a home.
I am His adopted child,
never more to blindly roam.
Though today I may feel pain,
I may yet feel pleasure too.
Though my flesh still yearns to sin,
I will choose to trust in You.

You are dear to the heart of God. His thoughts are directed towards you.
Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an excepted end.”
And yet we struggle. You do. I do. We wrestle with God and wonder what it is we are doing here on this earth — are we doing enough? — are we doing what He wants??
Yes. We are doing what He wants. We have believed in Him. We are resting in and trusting in HIs love for us. He has loved us with an everlasting love.
We look to Him, not to ourselves. We are exactly where He wants; we are His beloved child. His daughters.
He is in control. He is the Potter. We are the clay. We are ready and willing to be molded by Him. And He is molding us. Everything will be okay.
