Have you ever pondered on the question, “Where your life will end?”
Every day we get up from bed to go to work, do our chores, pay our bills, settle our insurances and taxes, take some rest, then work again.
Life has become routinary.
To escape the routine, we go on vacations once or twice a year and make sure that we get to celebrate the holidays.
Life has become a cycle.
To break the cycle, some of us head to a full stop such as taking an early retirement or take a detour to make sure that life does not escape us or simply bore us.
Life has become a state where we get stuck, so we do all our best to keep moving and moving, not minding the fact that we don’t have any direction at all.
Is your life now a boring, directionless, routinary cycle? Are you certain of where you are heading? If not, try to look back from where you came from. Are you moving far from it? Or, are you heading back to it?
Looking back does not hurt once in awhile. In fact, looking back reassures us that we have gone so far in moving forward from where we begin.
I don’t know about you, but I believe that if there is one certain path that we will take, it must be the path that leads us to our original design. Our life must begin from the One who made us and it should also end with Him.
Like Ebe Dancel’s song, Bawat Daan, may we be able to sing to God…
Kung ang puso ko ay imamapa
Ikaw ang dulo, gitna’t simula…
Kumanan man o kaliwa
Kung timog man o hilaga
Ang bawat daan ko ay patungo,
If my heart will be mapped
You will be the end, center and beginning…
If I turn right or left,
If I go south or north
All my road will lead
back to You.
