You are lying in your bed, eyes closed, breathing really heavily, trying to sum up the strength to get up. “Where am I going?”
You are staring into space, shoulders weighed down, and your heart too heavy to even think another thought. “What should I do?”
You are looking at your work screen, wondering when it will all ever end; where is the light at the end of the tunnel? Does it exist? If it does, when will it become your reality? “Who should I be?
Your life flashes before you, and you see how much and how hard you have tried to fit into this world and its system, but you have exhaustively concluded that after all the mental, emotional and physical torture you have undergone, tried to do everything the “right way”, but you find yourself asking, “What is the reason for my existence on this Earth?”
Money couldn’t fill the emptiness, relationships, jobs, did not take care of it, and certainly no material gain fulfilled you. They may have at one point, but it was temporary fulfillment; it couldn’t, it wouldn’t, last, and you are left wondering, “Which path should I take?”
Your spirit is suffocating.
You have read many useful books and watched knowledgeable videos illustrating how to do this and that, to become truly happy and fulfilled. You’ve joined many groups, talked with friends and family, listening, sharing, and seeking answers, but alas, even though you have gained some insight and wisdom, you find yourself back where you had started pondering, “What will my end of life look like?”
Whatever situation you find yourself in now, whatever people have labeled you as, whatever you have labeled yourself as, whatever guilt, shame or insecurity, you are unconditionally loved. You are so deeply loved that a divine blueprint had already been laid out for you; for the prosperity of your soul, mind and spirit. Before anything that has ever happened to you, that is happening to you, or will ever happen to you, happens, an appointment was already set for you, one that only you can fulfill. Your unique appointment bears and carries your purpose, and you are restless because your spirit is crying out to fulfill your appointment. You are not a mistake, you are chosen.
“I chose you before I formed you in the womb; I set you apart before you were born. I appointed you a prophet to the nations…” – Jeremiah 1:5 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
Nothing else can curb that empty restlessness you are feeling. Your appointment is close. Your appointment is here. All you have to do is call out for it, and it will come.
Call to me, and I will answer you. I will tell you great and mysterious things that you do not know. – Jeremiah 33:3 (GOD’S WORD® Translation)
