Are You A History Maker?

(You can receive this Blog every week via email by entering your address on the right.)

I love history. I love to learn the why that determines the what. I love to discover the struggles of people as they shaped their destiny.
I believe that all of us can all learn from history: Our nation's past, from our family's past, our Biblical heritage.

But are we simply History Readers, or are we History Makers? Do we sit back and watch the life around us go by, or do we write the story of the life around us?

When we get to the end of our lives, will it show that we were simply passive and indifferent, allowing events to happen, and following those events like sheep? Or, when we get to the end of our lives will it show that we actively shaped the course of our destiny?

Will we be a David who fought a Goliath, or will we simply be one of David's brothers who watched? Will we be a Paul who preached to the Ephesians and saw a powerful church rise up, or will we simply be a Eutychus who fell asleep on the window sill while Paul preached?

Know that I believe our destiny is closely tied to God's plan for us. But also know that I believe we ought to ask God about that plan, and get in on it!

Don't just read about what is happening... Write what is happening. Be a History Maker!
