I’ve lost my purpose momentarily.
What do I do?
What does my norm look like?
It’s been two weeks of changing diapers and waking up early to the pitter patter of little feet running into my bedroom to wake me up.
The schedule for two solid weeks has been to wake up early and serve breakfast, play, make lunch, nap, play, make dinner, do baths, read stories, and then tuck into bed.
It’s only been two weeks and yet I feel lost today.
I drove home.
The house is empty, other than my dog.
What’s my norm? I feel a little lost and a little lonely too.
There’s plenty that needs tended to…there’s the yard, the kitchen, the laundry, the vacuuming, the unpacking and yet I seem to have no ambition to do any of it.
Webster’s defines it as an earnest desire for some type of achievement or distinction…and the willingness to strive for its attainment.
What did Jesus feel like when He attained all that He’d come for?
He’d beaten death
He’d truly saved a dying world from itself
He’d beaten satan
He’d achieved The Father’s Goal
He sits now at His Father’s right hand and prays for us.
I find such comfort in that.
I need His prayers.
I want to attain and achieve all that God has for me.
I need a “reboot” today.
I’ve achieved the mission He had for me in the last 2 weeks, but what lies ahead?
Jesus achieved and attained.
And yet…it’s not over yet
There is more to come. There is eternity and the new heaven and the new earth that we read about in Revelation.
Jesus has not lost his purpose.
He will never lose His purpose and His plans.
His plans are good and more than we can really imagine.
This world needs a “reboot”.
People have lost their true purpose and the reason they were created in the first place.
We were created to worship and to commune with God and to Glorify God.
I think that’s where I need to start.
I need to “reboot” and dig into God’s Word.
I need to be still and seek and listen.
I need to pause to truly hear His voice.
I’ve served and it’s been good, it’s been very good.
It’s time now to seek and to be fed myself.
As I’m fed God’s truths and His Word takes root in my being…I will then be ready to be poured out again and achieve the plans He has in store for me.
“Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
