IN THE LIVING LIFE LESSONS COLUMN EACH MONTH I AM SHARING LESSONS GOD HAS TAUGHT ME THESE LAST SEVERAL YEARS. TODAY LEt’s talk about Finding purpose in life.
The lines of purpose in my life never grow slack. They are tightly tied to my future in heaven, kept taut by hope. ~ Colossians 1:5 (The Message)
Finding purpose for life is an issue I struggle with almost daily.
I’m married to a man who is driven with strong world-changing purpose and he walks in that with firm determination and vision for the future.
I, on the other hand, don’t.
Sure I find some purpose in supporting him, loving my friends, family, kids, grands, caring for our home, my writing and studies, etc…
But what does it all mean in the end?
The above verse is one that sets my feet back on solid ground. If I look to the world and my contribution to it for the validation of my purpose, I will be sadly disappointed time and again. But if I look only to God’s Word and the plans that He has for me I can find hope.
This hope is not one to disappoint. It is tied tightly to my future in heaven and that gives me reason to celebrate!
The trick is to not stop looking up!
