It feels like I’ve been doing so many seemingly pointless things with my life recently. I want to do something with my life that I know will benefit people. I want to be able to show what His light looks like through what I do, through how I live. Through all of this, it’s really hard to tell myself that doing the simple, day-to-day tasks of life will mean anything in the end. It’s hard to be okay with where you are RIGHT NOW.
So, if you feel like the way you are spreading the message of God’s love is the “wrong” way, if you feel like your testimony is not as strong or moving as someone else’s, if you feel as if where you are right now is not where you were meant to be, stop. Take a moment to remember that sometimes it doesn’t take a world-wide movement to draw someone to Christ, sometimes, it’s a small offering to read about Him with someone you love.
It’s hard to feel like you’re in the right place when all you want to do is be able to show everyone jus how amazing He can truly be. It’s hard to show His love when people will openly laugh at the idea of a God who loves unconditionally and formed each of us by hand. It’s hard to feel motivated to continue to live a life honoring the Lord when the places that you could once turn to for reassurance in His love now fill you with fear and worry. It’s extremely hard to trust that everything is where it should be when nothing feels right. It’s hard to keep pushing and showing what God’s love should look like. We were never told it would be easy, we were told that it was what we were born to do.
24 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earthand does not live in temples built by human hands. 25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. 26 From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. 27 God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.28 ‘For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’ [Acts 17]
We are called to reach out and find Him, not to shy away from His beautiful love. He is the reason we have hearts that beat and hands to write and mouths to speak and all of them should be used to bring Him glory.
He knows the challenges it will take to live a life wholly devoted to Him. He knows that sometimes giving up feels a lot better than continuous moments of doubt. But in Him, we can find assurance that life is about living for Him.
From friend to friend, you are exactly where you need to be right now. Stop questioning if you are doing “enough” to live in the light. No matter if your life is wonderful or horrible right now, you are called to show other’s what loving the Lord is like.
