My husband and I took a life group last fall which studied the book by Randy Alcorn on Heaven. We had some great conversations surrounding the book and what Heaven will be like … and it made me all the more determined to gain victory in certain areas in my life before I die.
I want to stand before God, facing eternity with Him, with the satisfaction of accomplishing some goals here in earth before getting there. I’ve struggled with food addiction for years … like four decades, years. And this year God has been giving me victory. That’s an area that I want to walk in complete freedom in before I’m called home.
There are several other areas in my life which I would love to overcome and I want to be able to say to God when I finally see Him face to face, “I stewarded well what You blessed me with – relationships, ministries ….”
I also know victory won’t happen without God’s help … His intervention, His strength. He is the One who helps me overcome and find victory in every area of my life … and I want to steward well the assignments He gives me on earth before He calls me home.
Are there areas in your life you would like to gain victory in before dying? If you want to share, I’d love to encourage you.
