Who am I?
What should I do with my life?
Am I living up to my full potential?
Should I be doing more? Should I be doing less?
What are my talents, and what should I make of them?
Am I channelling my energies in the right direction?
Am I doing what God wants me to do?
How do I really know what His will is?
God… are you there?…
Questions are good, but they can also stunt our growth.
We can ask ourselves so many that we end up in circles, more confused than when we started.
Sometimes life just doesn’t make sense. The answers about our future aren’t clear or linear.
Drifting and circling can become a state of being.
But at one point we have to stop… and look up…
Lord, are you there? Are you really there…? Because I know you care about all these things. You care about who I am and where I am and what I’m going to be. You say you have a plan, and I really want to believe you.
Lord, I’m willing to give you my hand. I can at least do that. And I can ask you to lead me. Would you do that for me Lord? Would you show me the way? I know I can trust you… You’ve never let me down before…
Thank you that the questions are just part of my journey with you, Lord. Help me not to start and end with questions, but to truly seek your answers. Help me to listen… to truly listen… to what you’re saying to me.
Show me who I am. Show me where to go. And show me your way. I will go wherever you lead, my Lord and Saviour…
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.” (John 14:6)
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
