It’s important to know why you are here
Life can challenge you more than you’re prepared for so many times. And it can be easy to give up hope…if you don’t have a firm foundation and an eternal perspective. In other words, if you don’t have something (and more importantly someONE) to look forward to, it’s easier to give up. And that’s why you are here. To learn about and talk about how you got here. You’re not a result of some lightning striking a pond of primordial goo. You are you because you were created on purpose and with love.
You might not know how you be of any use to others…yet. Or maybe you don’t know what skills, gifts, or talents you have. But that doesn’t mean you don’t have a purpose for being here.
Why you are here matters…
…even more than the fact that you ARE here. And the reason you’re here, like I said before, is to talk about how you got here. Put simply…God created you. He’s so creative that you’re unique from all the other seven billion people on the planet. No one else is quite like you. And there might be hundreds, or thousands, or even millions of people who would like to hear you talk about how you got here. There are probably some people who don’t believe in God that could only be influenced by you and the way you share His love. Imagine the possibilities.
I encourage you to find your creative skills…whether it’s talking, writing, singing, signing, drawing, hammering, painting, driving, or any other “ing”. Then use those skills to share God’s love with anyone who’ll listen. You’re not responsible for the results. Just take action.
For example…I use my skill of making words rhyme to share the many reasons to believe and trust in Jesus.
I believe it’s why I’m here, and…
Here’s a sample I shared a few years ago…
Why is the sky blue? Why is the grass green?
Why is the sun gold? What does it all mean?
Why is the air clear? Why is the ground brown?
Why does the earth float and never fall down?
Cause God made skies. He made them blue.
He made the world for me and you
And all because it pleased Him to.
God loves us through and through.
Why is a horse fast? Why is a snail slow?
Why does it get cold when Northern winds blow?
Why is the sea green? Why is the sand white?
Why is the day day? Why is the night night?
Cause God made creatures big and small,
And sand and seas; He made them all.
And even if we trip and fall
God helps us to stand tall.
God’s love is always there.
His love will never die.
And so you can trust in Him
For all your questions why…
