What is the purpose of our existence on this earth? That is what I meditated on when I went back to my motel room after visiting my mother who was dying of cancer in a San Antonio Hospital The Lord ministered to me with these thoughts:
O Lord, thank You for this life time;
Let me meditate upon Your Greatness
And Your Reason for putting me on earth
To dwell a short portion of time
Before I go home to You and spend eternity.
You created the first man, Adam,
Beautifully and without fault;
You even gave him a self will
To choose between Your Will and his,
And You told him not to touch the tree of good and evil
In the midst of all the rest of the beautiful things
You created in the Garden of Eden.
One day he chose to depart from Your Will,
Thinking that he knew more than You, Lord;
From that man's single sin,
You have allowed him and all of mankind
To experience everything including
Heartache, sorrows, disappointments and death
That is not from You.
You have allowed us to do what we think is best
And let us become our own gods;
When we finally realize that we can't make it without You,
You come with Your out-
To embrace us and to help us out from the mire
That we're in!
You let us have this earthly life
To humble us
So that we might know
That there is nothing good
Apart from Your Will!
When we have been humbled enough,
We will go home to heaven
Where we all chose to fall from;
This time we will stay in Your Will
And enjoy an abundance of love, peace and joy
Instead of our will
That leads to death and destruction.
So, Lord, break the bondage of any pride within us
And teach us humility
Until everything we do pleases You
And our will becomes Your Will,
For that is what You intended for our lives.
