A  family that is close to my heart lost someone this week.  This man died doing what he loved.  He loved the Lord and he shared this with others he met.  This challenged me to think am I doing what I was created for and what in my life stands in the way of my relationship with my Creator.

In college, it became clear to me what my passion in my life is and what drives me to get up in the morning.  My passion is to help people see the light at the end of their tunnel or to be the lantern in the tunnel until they reach the next lantern.  This light I am referring to is hope.  Hope will get you through a lot.  Hope is what you turn to when life is messy and you are not sure what to do next.

We can count on Lord God to provide the best hope for us because He is sovereign and sees the whole picture.  This does not mean that life will always be smooth sailing and we wouldn’t any trials along the way.  Because we will and when we do if you have a relationship with your Creator – Lord God then we do not have to do life alone.  Doing life alone is hard and a life filled a void that only your Creator can fill.  And life is hard sometimes even when you are doing life with your Creator.  But you don’t need to do life alone and He provides hope in His promises in the toughest moments.

Are you doing what you love?  Are you in the purpose you have been created for by our Creator?  And what hope can you offer to others in your life?
