What Do You Want to Understand

We all think at one point or another want to understand our lives? What I mean by this what direction to go in or what meaning our lives have.

This does have something to do with our purpose and destiny. Most people have an idea what they want to do when they grow up in fifth or sixth grade. Of course many change their minds to before high school is finished. Others don’t have the foggiest idea until they are in college. Even when they start a career or job the direction of life is still questioned. This may be even after getting married and having children. The question can be what is the meaning of life or where do I play in this big world. I have said on occasions some of us are still trying to figure all this out.

I have no exact answer other than that God loves us and he has plans for each of us to play. The important thing for us to do is seek him to find out what it is. He has given me some of the answers that I have requested from him however how I get there is another question. For some it may be real clear what the first step is while for many of us it is not. It is real clear if he tells you that you will be a pastor, a doctor or a lawyer however if he says that you will be business then that field is wide open. You first should go to business school to learn how to run a business. Of course there is more to it than that.

There are others he calls to the mission field. In those cases you have to figure what country goes to and what organization you may become part of. This is not an easy to road to go.

Another thing though I believe our purpose and destiny is beyond our job, career and family. You may have other things God wants you to do besides like using your talents and gifts. You may have a job during the day to make money while at night or on the weekends to do other things like volunteer work. Also you could be like me writing a blog to encourage people and to write about your life. I am sure directions and answers to our questions are wide open. I expect the first thing is to ask a question. The answer could be right in front of you. Another idea is go to a close friend. Ask him what he does when he is not working. It could be that you become his partner.

The most important thing to know is the world is so wide open and there are so many needs. We have at the very least to fill ourselves in one of those spots. It is real possible what we try first is not our final destination however if we don’t take the first step we won’t arrive there. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and good luck to find the spot you land in.
