THE DIRECTION YOU’RE LOOKING FOR
The story is told about a certain lady named Mila. Mila is working in a company for two years. Sensing other opportunity outside, she resigned from her job and grab the one opened up for her. After a year of working from this job, she again left her second job and look for a third one, then for a fourth one, fifth one and so on.
Not finding real satisfaction from her job as an employee, she put up her own business and started out excited as an employer. However, after less than a year of running her business, Mila wants to leave and go to work again as an employee.
Anyone you know like Mila? The story looks familiar, isn’t it? In fact, there are a lot of Milas in the world today, running from one job to another. After encountering a little hardship here, a little friction there with their boss and co-workers, they immediately run. A little irritation would trigger them to escape and take the shortest route. What they thought to be an easy road,
however, would actually turn out to be a “rotunda” circle giving them no direction at all.
On the other side of the coin, there are those who stayed on a job they do not like. Even if they don’t love it and are not really enjoying it, they have no other recourse but to stay on it. Their main reason for remaining is because the job provides for their needs, so they would just bear all the unnecessary stress just for them to earn a living. When opportunities arise for a change, they won’t venture out for the unfamiliar.
Both of the above cases are the condition of a lot of people today. They are really confused, burdened, dissatisfied, unfulfilled and without direction.
Just like a roller coaster they just keep on rolling and spinning in the avenue of life, going nowhere.
If you find yourself in the same condition, don’t worry! Don’t lose hope! Rejoice! It may be that the Providence allowed you to find this blog for you to find your niche in life. You see, a lot of people today have lost their track especially now that emerging gurus are proliferating everywhere giving advice of various kinds causing people to sway from what is really intended for them.
You are not alone this journey. In fact, I, myself, have the same experience
before. That’s why I’m so eager and have the courage to share with you what I did to find the right direction again.
You see each individual person is created unique and especial. Whether you believe it or not, you have a purpose especially intended for you and until you find that purpose, you’ll never find the right direction, the way towards a fulfilling in life.
Just like any gadgets you have in your house, the manufacturer has intended a purpose for each of them. You will only find the exact and complete purpose of a gadget through its manufacturer. There is no better way who could guide us accurately except him.
Just so with us as human beings. There is no other way we could ever find our purpose except through our Manufacturer, the Sovereign Lord. I might be sounding religious here but that’s the way it is. No other option could lead us towards an authentic direction.
In the book of Matthew it says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (Matt. 6:33)
I firmly believe without any iota of doubt that the Sovereign Lord, Himself, is the way not only towards heaven but also the way towards our life’s purpose, direction, and the elusive fulfillment in life.
If we can really capture this Truth, everything else in our life will fall into its proper places... Why not ask Him?
Have a blessed day!
