The Meaning of Life

What is life all about? Is the life we are living the life that God wants us to live?

Most of us care less to ask ourselves these questions when all is good and everything is going our way. We are preoccupied in enjoying ourselves with that we have and we never bother to really meditate about life’s meaning. A lot can distract us from asking the big question in life, like “What is my life all about?”

All of us have experienced hardship and trials in our lives. If you haven’t, then you must be dead. Only then, can you rest in peace. Trails can help us to find our meaning in life. If we let them.

I believe God sends us trials for our own sake. Sometimes God uses trials to get us back on track. Maybe to grab our attention. Don’t run away from them. Many of us try to escape our trials of life, only to catch up with us at the end. We all need a reality check once in a while.

If a person thinks that life is all about wealth, and he loses his wealth, he is forced to think about life in a different way. The real way. Sometimes losing his riches is the best remedy for him.

For a man in addiction to be sober he must be cut off from his drugs. We are the same. We also need to be cut off from the distractions that poison our soul and prevent us from finding our meaning in life. In other words to achieve sobriety.

Even though sometimes we don’t understand why God permits bad things to happen to us, we have to put our trust in Him.

Trust Him! Keep your eyes on Him! He will pull you through.

We need to let God show us our meaning in life. For as we trust Him in our trials God can use the difficult trial to mold us, to mature us.

Lets not waste the trials we are given. Let us use them as an opportunity to really grow in Christ. Only then will we find our meaning. Our days are numbered, lets not waste anymore.

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kind, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish it’s work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything” - James 1:2-4


  1. I was just thinking about 'life' the other day too when I was walking to school! But I was thinking more of how time was like in heaven,someone told me 1 day here is equivalent to 100 years there? I don't think anyone would know though. And that what we want, doesn't matter at all to God. All we should want is him and not a car or whatever.
    Very nice post!

  2. Alesa, I sometimes catch myself thinking about the same thing. I cant wait to spend eternity with our wonderful Father! Oh what fun!! Yay!

    The Bible doesn't actually say “To God one day IS a thousand years and a thousand years IS one day.” Apostle Peter actually wrote “Beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is LIKE a thousand years, and a thousand years LIKE one day” (2 Peter 3:8)

    The concept of time is not the same to God as it is to humans because God had no beginning. I think Peter was just trying to say that God doesn't have time. He doesn't rush like we do. No schedule. Just eternity. But then again you're right... We just don't know. I hope that makes sense.

    A friend of mine told me "Yes! God cares about what we want. Do you know for certain what you want and is it consistent with what God's will is for you here on earth? ... I believe him. Sweetie, its not bad to want. Shoot, I want a lot!

    Take care my dear,
