Are You Skimming?

jugglingTake a moment to think about your typical day. What do you spend your time on? Are you running all day long? Are you stressed out just trying to make through the day?

Today’s society is running every which way, just trying to make ends meet. Yet, it seems like we all have time to watch television, play on the computer, be glued to video games or watch our cell phones, twitter accounts, snapchat or facebook for 24 hours a day to make sure we don’t miss something that someone is doing.

These days it seems like there’s an app for everything. People like to take selfies or tweet about every moment of every day; feeling like they are a part of something big. But what does it really accomplish? Do you truly feel satisfied or are you just going around in circles until the next app hits the market?

We all have experienced times in our lives where you question your life’s worth? You question what does our lives really stand for? You question if you are truly making a difference. You question what your true destiny is. You question if this is all there is. You question the trials of life. You question the “what ifs”.

Every single one of us has a true purpose in life. Yet in the Bible, God makes it very clear that very few find their true destiny. But why is that? We all want to grow and succeed, so why is it that so many come up short and not live in their true calling?

“My people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4:6)

“This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:3-4)

skimmingOne of the biggest reasons…we tend to skim the surface of the Bible but don’t really dig deep to have a true and real experience with God. Now, don’t go shaking your head at me. Sure, there are alot of us who can quote scripture or explain who Jesus is. But head knowledge is not the same as heart knowledge. Heart knowledge is the very thing we all need in order to walk in God’s destiny for our lives. Heart knowledge is when you are spending real time with God, allowing Him to bring to life the very purpose He has for you. It’s allowing Him to speak through His word into your Holy Spirit. It’s allowing Him to guide your steps without all the distractions or concerns of this world. It’s allowing Him to birth the very, real purpose He has for you that you have prayed and hoped for.

God is searching for real relationships. He doesn’t want you to be filled with head knowledge just to quote scripture. No, He wants you filled with heart knowledge to walk out your destiny. The only true way of finding out what He really wants for your life is by spending time with Him. Don’t just skim the surface. Start today to dive into the word, allowing God to wake up the passion for your true calling. He will make it very clear if you’ll stop the distractions and get to know Him in a real way. God doesn’t want us running to and fro; “trying” to make a difference. NO…He wants us to spend real time in a real way with Him.

If you are willing to get rid of life’s distractions and truly spend time with Him…He will guide your footsteps, help you accomplish much more than ever expected and you will find yourself having more time to complete your daily tasks. He is the creator of time. So there is absolutely no reason not to give Him your time. The more you dig into a deeper relationship, the more He can put all the pieces together to help you fulfill your destiny. It will be your ultimate purpose coming to life. And with that, you will find that you are filled with much more happiness, joy, peace, financial prosperity, and knowing beyond a shadow of any doubt, that you are exactly where you are meant to be!

As you do, you’re life will become clearer than ever before. God bless!
