What On Earth Am I Here For?


I think I got that from rereading A Purpose Driven Life over and over again since sophomore year in high school.

But in truth, really, what on earth am I here for?

I see people on TV and see how they bask in fame and in money and I think to myself, what was my purpose here on earth?

I look inside of me and see all the things that I don’t have, the things that I would like to have and suddenly, I feel empty.
Every book I’ve read said that once I chase after the things I want, the career that’s most satisifying and find the love of my life, I would be okay.
I don’t understand it, if that’s all that there is to life, why am I unhappy?
Why do I lay awake at night, wondering if this is really all that there is to life?
Then I’d realize that maybe, in order to truly take life in, I have to step away from myself and stop comparing myself to other people.
I know that He has greater plans for me than I could ever have for myself and on most days, it’s difficult to take in because I want what the world has, I want beauty, I want fame, I want power.
But at the end of the day, the ones that truly make our lives rich isn’t what we receive instead it’s what we give out.
Our lives only make sense we allow others’ light to shine, when we share what we have, because at the end of the day, it comes into full circle and that’s when we please our Creator.
That’s when we’d finally know what we’re called to do.
So whatever it is that you’re called to do, cherish it and savor it.
That is what you were called to do.
If it were something else, God would have worked differently.
But He didn’t, He placed you there for a reason so grow as much as you could and Praise God that He is all knowing.
We just have to rest in His peace for the battle has been won.
