Life is hard. It is definitely not for the faint of heart. It’s difficult to navigate through the rough seas that seem to engulf your understanding of your precious purpose. You don’t see God’s hand and don’t feel his effervescent love at times – and that’s alright. You are human and the world is dirty and dark.
However, that does not mean his love is not present in your life. No, quite the opposite! God has never promised us that it will be easy; but, he promised us that we will never be alone. Sure, we can feel alone at times, but crack open his word and you will see that this quite frankly is not the case.
“Nevertheless, I am continually with you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me to glory. Who have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.” – Psalm 73: 23-25
Say that to yourself – he is continually with you! What a beautiful promise to mediate on!
Your vision can be clouded by the shroud of businesses, work and pace that seems to encircle us on a day to day basis. But – remember to look to the sky and consider your purpose. Because, dear one, you were made with a heavenly purpose in mind. This morning I was reminded of this promise by a sweet, sanctified song which says,
“Every time that you wake up breathing, Every night when you close your eyes, Every day that your heart keeps beating, There’s purpose for your life, So don’t give up, Don’t lay down. Just hold on. Don’t quit now, Every breath that you take has meaning – You are here for a reason.” – Ashes Remain
So do not be forlorn or disheartened if you do not feel your purpose just yet. Know that you are here for a reason. Allow yourself to be a bright beacon for Christ and shower his love on others today. Be the lighthouse in the rough sea in someone else’s life.
