In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it’s easy to fall into a routine where we merely exist, going through stereotypes without truly living. But life is a precious gift from God and it’s meant to be cherished, experienced, and explored to the fullest.
God wants us to live in our purpose and impact our world. He therefore puts somethings in place which can be very helpful for us to achieve purpose. To explore meaning to our existence, the first thing God gave us is passion. Living a life that’s more than just existing begins with identifying your passions and interests. What excites you? What makes your heart race? Find what you love, and make time for it. Pursuing your passions is a key ingredient in making life meaningful.
The second thing that God put in place for us to have a meaningful existence is the mental ability to create goals and dreams. Having aspirations gives life direction and purpose. Whether they’re big dreams or small goals, they provide you with a sense of achievement. Remember, dreams can be your guideposts on the journey of life.
A meaningful life can not happen in our comfort zone, therefore, God makes sure that there are challenges around which can push us out of our comfort zone to where we can explore the destiny in us. Embrace new experiences, take risks, and challenge yourself. This is where you’ll learn and discover more about yourself and the world around you.
Life’s richness often comes from the relationships we build. God created man as a social being, He wants us to have relationship with one another, He knows that through that, we can affect ourselves positively. Invest time in nurturing connections with family and friends. Share your experiences, joys, and challenges with those who matter most.
Being present in the moment is a powerful way to truly experience life. Mindfulness allows you to savor the little things and appreciate the beauty in the ordinary. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, it is part and partial of life programmed by God to keep reminding us that we’re humans and not God. Mistakes are also opportunities for growth and learning. Embrace them, adapt, and keep moving forward.
One of the best advices that Apostle Paul gave to Timothy is to take care of himself. Taking care of your physical and mental well-being is essential for a fulfilling life. Ensure you make time for relaxation, exercise, and self-reflection. Balancing work, personal life, and leisure is crucial. Finding that equilibrium ensures you don’t just exist in one aspect of your life while neglecting others.
“Don’t Just Exist” is a reminder to live a life filled with purpose, passion, and presence. It’s about embracing the beauty and opportunities that life offers. So, take a step today to break free from the monotony and start truly living your life to the fullest as God willed.
