Let me ask you a question here in April 2023; how is the pace of life depleting who you are, your energy, your decision making process, your love for those around you, your temper going off at inappropriate times, your scale is going up and you think it is lying to you, and your bank account seems always depleted? You are not alone if you feel this way. Sometimes you may feel like you were thrown out of a moving vehicle, and land face down in the mud and then someone stomped on you to boot!
The frantic pace with which we live our lives today, you may feel as I do sometimes you are about to loose your balance. When we fall off of our balance, much like a circus performer who is spinning all those plates on sticks, we are frantically running from one plate to the next keeping them all spinning. Unfortunately, our lives are not plates and things in our lives do come crashing down all around us and on top of our heads sometimes.
We each need to have something or someone to calm us down, to center us in these storms of life. What’s your poison? Maybe it is:
- OTC drugs
- Escaping somewhere
- Internet Surfing
- Shopping online
- Reading self-help
- Illegal drugs
- Or something else
What happens when you exit your escape poison of choice? Do you feel fulfilled? Has the storm passed you by? Have you delayed the inevitable? The truth is nothing will satisfy that which you do not understand and where that deep hole inside you longs for something else and it isn’t found in the list above. Our lives continually spin around each of us in a seemingly endless parade of weeks, blurred into seasons and then years and decades.
When did all of this start? Do you remember? Many of us sleepwalked through High School and even College wondering who am I? Where do I fit in? What is my purpose? Do I have a passion? And a million other questions.
Your life may seem like an endless series of starts, stops, detours, exits, challenges, and decisions leaving you feeling empty, unsatisfied and uncapable of much of anything.
The image at the top of this blog provides an answer no matter what your age. I am a person of faith and as such, I know whose I am, where I am going, what my purpose is in this life, I know what my passion is, I know what my gifting is and how to use it here while I walk this worldly planet with all its dysfunction.
You my friend are on your own journey to either the end of your life which is death. Or you are on your journey to spending eternity in a place where all of the evil, dysfunction, and sadness of this world does not exist.
Where would you rather live?
With one small decision, you can regain your life, take back your confidence, regain your strength, stamina, love, be supported, have an eternal God by your side to help guide and steady you as you walk your path.
Where would you rather be today?
I would love to come along beside you and be your friend and help you understand what you are missing and how you can live eternally. All you have to do is to reach out and ask. Send me an email to the address below and I will be in contact.
Here are a few of my favorite “Uplifting Bible Verses:”
- Psalm 37:4 – “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
- Philippians 4:13 – “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”
- Joshua 1:9 – “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you where you go.”
