Life is difficult to bear when it feels that nothing we accomplish amounts to purpose. Through our gifts, attributes, and talents we can get in the habit of being dazzling, but without any true fulfillment. We may meander through endless personal projects or work assignments and find that though our hands are constantly moving, something in our spirit feels barren. This is when we need to ask the Creator, “What was I created for?”.
Every person was born with their lives branded on God’s mind. He didn’t mold anybody haphazardly. No soul is housed by a useless vessel. So when it seems that our activities or pursuits breed emptiness within us, we can take solace in knowing that if we seek out our purpose through prayer, the Lord will lead us to what we were born to do. And in the hands of a masterful God, it is that “thing” that promises to bring us the greatest joy, while accomplishing His cause for the Kingdom.
“I know that You can do everything, and that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You... Listen, please, and let me speak: You said, ‘I will question you, and you shall answer Me.’ I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees You.” ~Job 42:2,4-5
