Dear old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers–
Happy Monday! I hope you all are doing well and that you’re not deflating under the Monday Blues.
Anyways, I believe that we live in a world where people crave for something meaningful. We desire for our lives, relationships, careers to hold meaning and to reflect some type of value within our society. Think about it, would you choose your job if that position held no meaning within society: whether that is power, prestige, honor, etc. What about your perfect guy or girl? Do the characteristics they possess hold any weight within our value system? Even think of the homes we reside in, are the aesthetics one of “esteem” held within our society fixated on beauty and volume. What if for a moment, we found meaning in just being the person we were created to be? Marrying the spouse duly suited for our life and love goals? Living in the home that we perceive to be best for us? Working the career that we are passionate about and that changes a majority of lives?
Isn’t that meaningful?
Society teaches us that meaning is in our possession, accomplishments, and assets. God, however, teaches us that meaning is within Him and as we find ourselves within who He is, we automatically hold meaning, value, and worth within society. This value and meaning hold regardless of our looks, career, education, home aesthetics, and relationships. Our lives are meaningful because we are meaningful, just as we are.
Until next time,
