What is the Point!?

Monday, June 17, 2013

“What is the point?” This question has been on my mind today. I woke up with the Monday blues. I have been working so hard lately to lose weight, so that I can become healthy, so that I can live longer. I was thinking today, what is the point of living longer. I will have more bills to pay. I will still be stuck in the same place I have been for years. Seems like things change for everyone around me but, I am always stuck.

I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and to look to the vey source of HOPE. I realized GOD is the point. The very reason I breathe every day because He is the one who gave me breath. I am not writing this for pity, for anyone to feel sorry for me, or because I am trying to preach to someone. I am writing to possible reach someone else who feels the same way. Everything we go through is ONLY temporary. The trials, the struggles, the pain, the sorrow, the loneliness, the sickness. It is only TEMPORARY! God has a plan. If we could just fully rely on Him, He has already made a way of escape. II Corinthians 4:18 says, “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

It doesn’t matter the job we have, how many degrees we can obtain, the car we drive, or the neighborhood we live in. None of these things are eternal. None of these things will take us to the next level. God is our only hope. We we’re created to worship Him and to share His love with others. If we don’t have Him, what is the point!? THAT is the Point!

This world has nothing for me
This life is not my own
I know You go before me and I am not alone
This mountain rises higher
The way seems so unclear
But I know that You go with me so I will never fear
I will trust in You
Building 429 – We won’t be shaken

    I just happened upon your blog . . . Praise God for your realization. Indeed He IS the point! Scripture says everything is for HIS own pleasure and Glory. So I keep reminding myself that I am trying to get healthy so He can get the glory. I fall short every day, but He doesn't give up on me, so what right have I to give up? "His compassions fail not. They are new every morning." Lamentations 3:22, 23. We do not know what His plan is, but we can know He has one!
    Thank you for reminding me of this tonight when I needed to hear it.

    Have a blessed night and week -

    We must all feel this way at some point. I try to stay as focused as I can. I tend to fall prey to the "eat what I want " attitude about every three months then I get back into watching what I eat. I haven't gained any substantial weight and cheating helps me realize how important healthy eating really is. After I cheat for a couple days(a whole week and a half) I tend to start feeling irregular and sluggish. So when I get back at it I feel even better about the healthy choices that I make.
