Life is meant to be lived with purpose, direction and meaning. We all desire the same things in life…happiness, joy, love, and purpose. I’ve never met and spoken to a person who didn’t want to know true happiness. Nor have I ever met a person who didn’t desire to have purpose, meaning, and direction in their life. And I’ve never met a person, in their deepest desire, who didn’t want to live life the way it was created to be lived. Why are we here? What’s my purpose in life? Why do I exist? We all ask these questions about life, therefore none of us are alone in asking these fundamental questions about our existence.
The reality however is that we often look for the answers to life’s deepest questions through the wrong lenses. What would happen if we began to look for the answers to our questions through the lenses of the one who holds them? The God of the universe, the one who created us and holds us in existence has the answers to our most difficult and most simple questions in life. What would our lives look like if we began to see the truth from the very one that knows us best?
We all exist for a reason. We all have a purpose. We all have meaning. When we come to understand that the reason we exist, the purpose we have and the meaning for which we were created is found in a God who loves each of us…then we find true happiness and freedom in our life.
