Not long after I became a Christian, at the age of 12, I started having a burning desire for more of God. I wanted to serve Him in anyway I could and by 15, at youth camp in Alvin, Texas God spoke into my life of a Destiny. He planted a vision in my mind so BIG that I have felt restless to find it. As luck, a.k.a God would have it I recently started reading a book that I bought years before. Restless by Jennie Allen, is a book about finding your purpose in God. Not far into the book I am struck by Jennie’s words, “No unique purpose for your life will fill your soul. The only thing that will fulfill and settle your soul is God himself.” Here I am with this aching for purpose and I have it in my hands the whole time; God. It was so simple, but I’ve been missing it. My soul has been so focused on fulfilling God’s purpose for my life that I missed the fact I have already found it in God. God is my purpose.
So I might not know how exactly my life will pan out, but I know that God is real. God loves me and has a plan for me. God is coming and as heaven draws near I want to take as much part in God’s epic story as I can.
“If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.” – C.S. Lewis
