Life is Such a Complicated Matter

Life is Such a Complicated Matter

By Gregory Heil

Life is such a complicated matter. I have spent a good portion of my life pondering what to do with the rest of it, what to do with it at the present time, why I did what I did with it in the past, and so on and so forth. When you ask someone what their philosophy of life is, it is not a question that can be posed to that individual lightly. It takes some thought. But now, I will do my best to divulge to you, the reader, the principles and ideas that embody my “philosophy of life.” In its simplest form, I am here to serve God and glorify Him.

Primarily, I believe that I was put on this planet for a purpose, which as I stated is to serve God and glorify Him. What greater purpose is there than to honor the One who created you? There is none! All glory and power be His! In a nutshell, that is what I am supposed to do with my life. But how we go about that is up to interpretation.

Now, to expand on that thought. I sincerely believe that God has granted all of us special gifts, talents, and unique abilities that are specifically suited for us. I hope to spend the rest of my life discovering the identities of all of my gifts, and using the ones I know of to glorify God as best I can.

If its specifics you seek, then you’re in luck. I have an immense love for adrenaline sports. By that I mean sports such as skiing, mountainboarding, mountainbiking, wakeboarding, and snowboarding. I just feel drawn to ski and mountainboard whenever I can. I practice whenever I can, and I am trying to develop those areas of my life as much as possible so that I will be a well-maintained tool when God reaches into his tool box to pull out someone to do his bidding. I will be the sharpest instrument at his disposal. There are many other areas of my life which I feel compelled to pursue, but these are the most unambiguous examples that I could think of.

In conclusion, my singular purpose in life is to glorify God and do his bidding, whatever it may be. It is to listen to God’s call, and respond. And that, is my philosophy of life.
