How Long Does It Take To Complete Your Destiny?

I remember asking my dad how far away the moon was.  He was barbecuing his world famous bacon burgers in the backyard.  He looked up at the night sky, paused, then answered, "son, you take half the distance and double it."  I'm pretty sure his answer would be the same if he were around for the question of the day — How long does it take to complete your destiny?

Maybe the moon question is easier to answer than the destiny question.  Half the distance to the moon is 119,450 miles.  And half the distance to your destiny is half a lifetime.  That leads to the follow-up question — how long is a lifetime?

The best answer I have is this:  a lifetime is the amount of time allocated to each individual to complete all tasks deemed necessary by the Creator.  You have specific assignments.  Only you can complete them.  The challenge is to discover what your purpose is.  When you discover it, everything makes sense.  Doors open at the right time.  The people you're supposed to meet show up in your life at the right time.  All the puzzle pieces fit together.  You see the big picture.

I wish you well on your journey.  Take it one day at a time.  You have a lifetime to figure everything out.  Don't rush it.  Enjoy the moment.  If you feel like contributing to the conversation, please add a comment below.
