Looking around at all the people I know there have been times that I've felt jealous of other people's lives and wished mine could be as successful as theirs appeared to be. Lately in my life it seems like all the people I know are going out into the world and becoming "adults" while I'm just trying to get through the week breathing. It seems like everyone I know is finding their perfect mate whom they'll spend the rest of their life with while the closest thing I have to a romantic relationship is cuddling up with my stuffed animals at night. Yeah, I know, it's sad!
This world isn't about what I become and how far up the chain I get, it's about living a life for God that shines on others to want the same love that God has given me. I just feel like so many times people keep focusing on all the things we are "supposed" to be achieving and being people living for God is not one of them. One day when I reach heaven I hope that maybe just one person would come up to me and tell me that God used my life in such a way to touch them so they realized they wanted the same love I showed them through my life and they decided to follow Jesus- to me that would be more successful than being the most famous person in my field out there. I want more meaning to my life than just a job title.
Today look at your life. How is your life impacting others? Do you see a life that is touching others for God or do you only see your focus on your job, interests or yourself? We all get caught up in the things of this world and it's hard to remember why we're really here. It's never too late to start re-focusing your life on what really matters! Nobody can live the life you are living and nobody can use your life to touch others -but you and God can!
