"I am a spirit being. But something happened that will change my life forever: I received my destiny. I am going to have a body." So far I haven't shared much about my upcoming book Breath of Life, but this is how the story begins! It is a story about life, about creation and destiny, written from the perspective of an unborn child. Based on a surprising array of scriptures I have painted a picture of our colorful God who creates people in His own image and according to His likeness. I have painted a picture of mankind in its purest form. I hope this book will take you back to your beginnings but at the same time will make you think about your own future. The Lord says in Jeremiah 29:11 I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for.

Are you on the road to nowhere?
More than once I urge my readers to see the Bible as a roadmap for life. God wants to guide us, not punish us. He wants to teach us, not confuse us. Today many people seem to make up their own laws and guidelines and do not care about what God says or said thousands of years ago. Many do not want to be guided or corrected, but rather find their own way through life. I am not saying that living that way is an impossible thing to do (millions of people are doing it each and every day), but I know it will lead to a lot of frustration. Be honest, how will you know if you are on the wrong track if there are no road signs? How will you know if you are on the right track if there is no map to guide you? How will you know when you have arrived if you don't know where you're going?
Let me ask you: do you have a destination in life or are you aimlessly wandering?

Food for thought!
Last week we discussed the wisdom of Jesus, as found in Matthew 7:12, in our small group. It says, Do for others what you want them to do for you: this is the meaning of the Law of Moses and of the teachings of the prophets. We were amazed about the simplicity of this teaching. It is one of the key principles I describe in my book Respectfully Yours. Our attitude towards others should no longer be the result of past experiences, but the key to unlock future blessings.
