With the mundane ritual of life, it’s easy to wonder why you were created. It seems that with each passing day, you go through the same routine (wake up, work, sleep etc). Then before you know it, you’re on repeat the next day. If you’re not conscious of the cycle of life, feelings of despondency and purposelesness being to set in. As you know, when these emotions appear, it’s hard to shake.
I’m sure that every person who has walked this Earth, at one time or the other, has questioned their existence. You may be wondering why you were born, what’s your purpose or why you should continue living in such a crazy world. These are all valid questions that I cannot answer. It takes each person, individually, to do some soul searching to find the answers that they need.
In my own life, I noticed these lethargic feelings would come upon me when my life didn’t pan out the way I expected. For example, I grew up pretty stress free. Yet the moment I became a young adult, it seemed that life was going much faster than I expected. Gone were my ideas of the perfect life, which was a huge shock to my system. As a result, I came face-to-face with some deep issues. Thank God I got through many of those challenges through personal faith in Jesus Christ, which was my only anchor in the midst of uneasiness.
As I mentioned already, I’m not going to give you a list of suggestions to change how your feeling (it doesn’t work anyways). But I do encourage you to take the journey, which can be oh so painful, to finding out what’s taking place in your heart. Are there issues that need to be dealt with, pains that should be healed, relationships that need to end or friendships restored? Ultimately, only you know!
Today, begin that journey towards finding freedom and clarity in your path. You were created with so much purpose and plan in mind. It’s your choice to discover it!
