Have you ever experienced an empty feeling in life?
Have you ever felt like you were made for more than just to try to make yourself happy?
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
– Ephesians 2:10
It’s hard work for me to move my thought patterns away from ‘I need more (x)’ and towards ‘what did God create me to do with my life’. (x) has it’s place in life, but it’s not the reason for life, it’s just another resource. Here’s a great promise regarding resources that I’ve been clinging to.
Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness; you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God.
– 2 Corinthians 9:10-11
It’s interesting to look at the context of this passage. It’s not just about our own fulfillment. God gives us all an abundance of something, even though it’s not the (x) you think you need to be happy. The truth is someone else needs what we have.
We were all created for a purpose. Don’t let yourself and your lack of (x) stand in the way of discovering and pursuing it.
