Purpose?

Jasper Speaks:

There are days (and it seems like a lot of them lately) when I wonder what I am here for. Is there a real purpose to my life. I seem to screw up all the time. I can't please people. I can't provide for my family the way I would like. I can't honor God in all things. I can't love enough. It is stressful. It is hard and frankly, life stinks.

My own goal and vision for life seems to sometimes be in a direct opposition to God. It is hard to maintain a positive attitude in these situations. As I search the Word I take comfort in the promise that I am not in control.

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord“And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earthso my ways are higher than your ways
and my thoughts higher than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9


Glad that God has a way but sometimes I am frustrated that I don't always understand.
