Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. ~1 Corinthians 9:24-27 (NIV)

You've just received a medical report that you have a terminal illness... or that a relative has just passed away
It could be that you just won the lottery or a promotion at the job...
Perhaps you are struggling with depression and don't know where to go
Many of us at one point in our lives wondered what life was all about. Perhaps you've stumbled upon this and are wondering right now what life is all about.
At the age of 22, I was first introduced to Jesus and portrayed by the bible. I was amazed at his life. It was as life full of purpose it involved a plan and a destiny.
I remember asking myself the question why am I here?
Life is like a box of chocolates and there is a destiny that God desires all men to have. We must choose to follow that destiny.
This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6who gave himself as a ransom for all men€”the testimony given in its proper time.
1 Timothy 2:3-6 (NIV)
