I am counting on the Lord; yes, I am counting on Him. I have put my hope in his word. Psalm 130:5
. . .
Do you ever have days when you feel so lost it feels like you must be living someone else's life? Today was that day for me.
A few hours into the work day, a couple meetings and a scroll through the emails had me feeling so lost.
I found myself sitting at my desk aimlessly staring at my computer but wondering why am I here? What am I doing for God? What's His purpose for me? Doesn't he have something better for me to be doing? And I really felt it, my head burned and my chest tightened. I looked at the clock, 12:45, I'd better get some lunch before it gets too late, I thought. So I grabbed my coat and keys and drove to McDonalds (don't judge me 😏). As I drove back to work eating my chicken wrap -520 calories and delicious, if your wondering- I talked out my thoughts with God...
"I don't understand God, there must be something more important for me to be doing than this same old job day after day. The last 3 years feel like the last three minutes, when can I start to really LIVE and create, and worship you with my love for your creation?" The longer I talked, the less I understood, and I didn't hear any answers, and it wasnt long before I found myself back at work walking in to yet another meeting... But unbeknownst to me, this meeting was about to hold some answers to my questions.
You see, in that meeting I spoke with someone who shared a deep personal trial she is going through and during the course of the conversation God gave me His devine wisdom and understanding allowing me to care and support this person in a way that was very special and Christ centered.
After this meeting I understood, it may not be in big ways, it may not be every day and it may never be obvious, but God has put me exactly where I am, when I am, for His purposes.
I hope that if you ever find yourself wondering how, when, what, where or why, talk to God about your questions, and just be sure to keep your eyes, ears and mind open to how He might answer, it could come in ways you never expected.
