I talk a lot about personal development and creating a life that you want to wake up to each day. In order to have the life that you dream of there are things you will have to do to make it happen, however, there is one thing that is most important but gets overlooked. The one thing that is necessary in order to live the life that you dream of, the life filled with purpose, the life that brings you joy and fulfillment, is living the life God has planned for you. Trying to live life any other way will not give you what you are looking for. It just won’t work.
How do I know it’s true? I’ll ask you, how is living your life sans God working for you? You see, you can live life on your terms and things may feel like they’re going well for a short while. Eventually the emptiness will seep in and you will start getting restless. Some turn to drugs and alcohol to fill the void, some change careers, relocate, go to psychics, people try just about anything. Why? That gaping void continues to grow and it becomes unbearable. That void was meant to be filled by Jesus Christ. Nothing else will work.
So, if you want to have a life full of joy, adventure, and purpose I want to encourage you to first surrender your life to Jesus (just say Lord, I give my life to you), take some time to seek Him concerning what His plans are for your life (they’re good, Jeremiah 29:11), and then OBEY. You have everything to gain by following Him. “O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.” Psalm 34:8
