Are you excited about your life? Or do you feel as if you’re merely existing, drifting along from day to day without any sense of purpose or direction?
Through the years, I’ve met countless people who’re living what I call a “settled-for-life.” Somewhere along their journey, they became complacent and content in their circumstances. They settled for what they believed was adequate or satisfactory instead of exerting the effort and work necessary to living a life that’s truly excellent and outstanding.
The truth is, it’s easy to find ourselves settled and complacent in life. And there are many reasons we can feel stuck, discouraged, or adrift; lose our enthusiasm for life; and forfeit our hope, sense of purpose, and peace.
In my opinion, the foremost reasons are because many people have lost sight of who God made them to be and what He designed them to do. As a result, countless people are not actively, intentionally, and purposefully pursuing what the Father has planned for them.
If you truly want to pursue your purpose and reach your full potential in life, then you must face up to these two truths:
- Truth #1: God has placed more within you than you realize.
- Truth #2: You likely have settled for the life you’re living now.
You must remember that your heavenly Father sees you through the eyes of love and forgiveness (Eph. 2:4-5). He sees where you are, but He also sees the person He made you to be. God sees all the awesome potential and possibilities He’s created you to fulfill.
