Through the years I have met many people. People from different walks of life, ages, and direction. Working with others for a living, mentoring and guiding them through life’s many obstacles you start to notice similarities. We are all searching for purpose. For the mast majority, their purpose is to make millions of dollars and be rich. Being rich has a facade that if you have money you are happy. That is why most want to achieve that as their purpose. Some chose the purpose of a brilliant career filled with a series of moves to get them at a certain status. With the countless possibilities of what your purpose is there is a common denominator. The missing piece!
What’s the missing piece? Whether you are in the process of chasing your purpose or you have successfully conquered it I always ask this question:
Is there something more? Do you feel like there is still something missing from your life?
In almost every case the answer is yes! I would like to provide a solution to that missing piece. His name is Jesus! We were all created in the image of God and deep within us is a longing to be near to Him. We often try to fulfill those yearnings in our spirit with material possessions, achievements, and conquered dreams but without Jesus, it’s never going to be enough. He is the hope within our souls that tells us we are made for much more than just this life. His love covers all our mistakes, faults, and failures so that we can live free from shame. His comfort holds us close when the pain of this life becomes too much to bear. See Jesus is that missing piece that brings completion to our life and truly gives us the purpose we were meant for!
Job 42:1-6 “I’m convinced: You can do anything and everything. Nothing and no one can upset your plans. You asked, ‘Who is this muddying the waters, ignorantly confusing the issue, second/guessing my purpose?’ I admit it. I was the one. I babbled on about things far beyond me, made small talk about wonders way over my head. You told me, ‘Listen and let me do the talking. Let me ask the questions. You give the answers.’ I admit I once lived by rumors of you; now I have it all firsthand-from my own eyes and ears! I’m sorry-forgive me. I’ll never do that again, I promise! I’ll never again live on crusts of hearsay, crumbs of rumor.”
I challenge you today to open up to God and let him into your heart. Let him give you the answers you’re looking for, the missing piece of your life!
