At work the last few days I’ve been putting together project plans for a couple of projects I’m starting to work on – One a high level plan just with a few milestones and another a detailed plan listing all tasks required to complete the projects.
Here’s the dictionary definition of a milestone:
An important event, as in a person’s career, the history of a nation, or the advancement of knowledge in a field; a turning point.
So you can see from the dictionary definition how my project planning has milestones, but what about your life? If you had to sit and write down all the milestones you’ve achieved in your life, what would they include?
- your birth?
- your first words?
- your first steps?
- first day at school?
- your first day at secondary school?
- graduation from university?
- your first job?
- birth of your child/children?
- death of your parent(s)?
- the day you gave your life to Jesus?
Whatever the milestones you’ve had in your life, I hope one of your most important ones has been letting God into your heart. If it isn’t, why isn’t it?
God tells us to put
God first, Ourselves last, And others in between
So should accepting God into your life not be up there with your milestones in life?
If you haven’t accepted God into your life, maybe now is the time for you to add a new milestone in your life. It’s never too late to give your life to God, so I’d encourage you to do so now.
One of my all time favourite Salvation Army band pieces is a piece of music entitled Milestone by William Himes – As it fits in with today’s topic, I thought I’d share it with you:
