Sometimes life just has you in a rut. You feel as if no one cares, or no one listens. Maybe you even feel like the path you’ve taken isn’t the right one for you. I go down that road from time to time. Although, I don’t wonder what I’m supposed to be doing with my life. I always wonder how am I supposed to be helping others with what I am doing.
How can I maximize my potential?
Do I have something worth offering to others?
Am I alone in thinking this way? I don’t think so.
Not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others. Philippians 2:4
To be honest, that was the reason I started this blog. I needed an outlet, a way to allow myself to be heard – even if only by a few people. So, thank you, friend, for listening, for allowing me to feel that I have something worth sharing, something that others could benefit from.
And, I think I’m right. I think we all have something to give, something to share with the world. We can all maximize our own potential. The first thing we need to do in this journey, though, is realize:
What I find absolutely shocking is that when I look at my own daughters, I realize that they talk and talk and talk. And, sometimes it doesn’t even matter if anyone is listening because they think that what they say is valuable. As adults, we seem to lack that same self-confidence that we had as children. Why? Where did it go? Can we get it back?
I believe we can. I believe the source of the problem is that the older we get, the more we follow human ways.
And, unfortunately, that is much easier said than done. We turn to our neighbors and worry about what they think of us, and what they’ll say. Instead, we should focus on what He thinks of us, what He will say when the time comes to meet Him face to face.
