Do you ever feel like everything is going wrong? A day or a week filled with bad news, like someone is taking shots at everything you do. You can never seem to catch a break.
Recently I experienced a few weeks like this, one thing after the other and to top it all off I found out someone cloned my credit card, so it looked like I was eating two-minute noodles until the bank sorted it out.
It was crazy, I really thought that I was under attack, I felt like everyone hated me and people were out to get me.
A few days ago I was “venting” to a trusted friend, just telling him about life’s problems and I ended the conversation by saying I just wish Jesus could remind me what I’m actually doing. You know, the whole “ask and you will receive” concept?
Well… literally 5 seconds later a girl approached us and said, “I do not know why, but I feel like I need to talk to you guys.”
It’s so funny how life works or God. I was at my lowest but in an instant I was reminded about what I’m doing on earth.
It’s a natural human thing to forget what our purpose is but it didn’t take long before I was reminded about what God wanted from me. It was like a dream because every day since then, even though I still in the same situations with the same people giving me crap, I cannot help but be happy. My life found purpose and I didn’t need anyone to tell me.
Three things I’ve learned from the past few weeks.
- Trust a friend
I don’t always vent to many people, in fact I’m an introvert, but if you met me you wouldn’t tell, but I learnt that being open with a friend that you trust, helps your mind and soul become happy, it’s healthy. I`m NOT saying gossip about other people what I am saying is confide in someone who is a friend to your future.
Now this one is a simple one, and this works even if you are not Christian. Jesus died for you to ask him for help. It’s a simple concept but asking with an open heart and an honest heart not for personal gain but to see clearly in life, is all God asks for.
- Remind yourself.
It’s funny ever since that day, the moment I get down I remind myself of my purpose and that I’m actually doing something far greater than my circumstance. God has giving you a purpose not so you can do a task, He’s given you a purpose so that you can know your identity in Him.
I hope this spoke to your heart the way it did mine, be encouraged and blessed. Your purpose is far greater thank your circumstance.
