(This post comes from a place of just wanting to write. No rhyme or reason...just some rambling that was laid on my heart)

I am learning more and more, with each passing day that life is something that cannot be predicted or, at times, even understood.

Each of us imagine what we believe our lives will be like. Every day, we wake up with some thought of what will happen and how it will end. But the thing is, we truly have no idea. In some respect, that can be terrifying, but it can also be incredibly exciting and liberating. We have the chance to make our days what we want and that is a gift.

Aside from sending His son, I believe one of the greatest gifts God ever gave us is the chance to live our lives.

Pause just for a moment, take a breath, and rest on that fact. It's just...awesome. God could've dictated our lives starting from the first breath we took, but He didn't. He allows us to have fun, to hurt, fall down, mess up, and start all over again. We can find out what we love, what we hate, what we can't live without.

He gives us the chance to choose Him.

Simply, He gives us the chance to live.

Life and living cannot be taught. We learn, sometimes on a daily basis, what it means to us to live. We learn we will be disappointed and we will be elated. We learn there will be moments that break us and moments that build us. We learn life is constant only in the way in changes.

There are times I may hate the circumstances I am facing, but instead of praying for God to change them, I want to pray that He change my heart and my mind. I want to accept that where I am is where I am supposed to be.

I have no idea what each of you are facing today, but I hope that you are given the chance to take a step back, look at it, and see it for what it can be. Let it be a chance to strengthen you. An opportunity to catch a glimpse of the bigger picture.
