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-stretched arms


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.
