I’ve been thinking a lot …
The same is true our purpose or lack of purpose in our everyday lives.
“Although we think of Alzheimer’s as chiefly a biological disease that’s governed by genetic facts, the level of meaningfulness in our lives plays an important role in determining whether we succomb to this illness.”
“Regardless of gender and cultural background, the researchers found, meaning in life influences one’s risk of developing Alzheimer’s across the board.”
You were created by God, for His purposes.
Implanted deep within you is a innate longing to accomplish.
You were wired to achieve.
I’m not speaking of accomplishment and achievement in the way that much our world describes it. I’m speaking of something greater. I’m speaking of something far more significant.
Paul reminds the church at Ephesus in Ephesians 2:10, “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”He says in Ephesians 3:20, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us…” Don’t buy into the lie that your life is pointless.
It’s Sunday night and I love Sunday nights because they represent the launch of a new work week. It’s a fresh start. It’s a new beginning of sorts. I invite you to join me in making this next week a week of purposefulness and meaning. Not for your glory but for God’s glory. Be encouraged and keep moving forward.
How is God encouraging you today?
