"Where does your identity come from? It's easy to base success off of people, grades, appearance, possessions, wealth, social-status... and so on. Yet all of these things, including life, are fleeting.
Elementary school to high school focuses on the importance of college. Of which college intensifies your efforts on finding the 'perfect' job or career. For which you can earn a salary. And pay for food, a house, your children to go through the same process. And then. We die. So what really is the point of this? Happiness? It seems even taking the efforts to connect with friends is only self-serving. Talking with people just to receive the intrinsic short-lived happiness of having communicated with a human being. So really, what is the point? Where does God come in to play? Does your life show that you're living for Him?
The only constant in life is God. Yet, we tend to turn to Him only in times of trouble.
A prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for Your everlasting love. You are always with us. Fill our hearts with Your purpose for us in this world. Let us long for the joy of Your Presence and the promise of Heaven. Let us not depend on earthly objects for satisfaction. Instead of worrying if we are doing enough, let us find comfort in the fact that You love us regardless. Our identity comes from You and You alone. Not our abilities. Not our accomplishments. From You. Remind us that Jesus died for us, and for that we find our value.
In Jesus's name I pray. Amen.
1 John 2:15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them."
