My Worst Fear is a Movie
You may not know this, but my worst fear is a movie.
I get to heaven and God sits me on a couch. He gives me a Coke and some popcorn and says “Watch this”.
The movie I watch lasts for four hours, but it seems like it only lasts 15 minutes.
There’s action and adventure, romance and comedy, and ethical dilemmas all wrapped up into the best movie I’ve ever seen. The leading man is making all the right decisions and all the right choices.
Its the best of every movie I’ve ever seen in my life all wrapped up in one film.
When the movie is over, I ask God “What was that all about? Who was that actor? Who’s story was that?”
He turns to me and says “That was your life. The life that I wanted you to lead. I wanted you to be all of that and do all of that…but you chose something else. Where you didn’t recognize your life in this movie is where you chose your own way. I wanted the best for you, but you chose otherwise.”
My fear is that I won’t recognize any of that movie. I fear that I will have chosen all along the way and never realized the plan that God had for me.
Its not only my fear for me, but its my fear for my family and friends. I don’t want them to miss out on God’s plan for their life. I want them to be able to lead the life that God has for them with reckless abandon.
Be thankful that your “movie” is not done. Pray every day that God will open your eyes so that you’ll know where His Will is for you and that you’ll humbly obey.
When he calls to you move, then move. And when he says “stay”, don’t move an inch.
