Welcome to “Sunday Inspiration,” a bi-weekly devotional for those seeking spiritual encouragement in the pursuit of their passions. Each post comes from an outside resource (as referenced). I hope these posts will inspire and motivate you in your life and career in addition to our weekly original blog posts. Enjoy!
In the ninth chapter of the book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon writes about the importance of seizing life, living in the moment, and learning to enjoy each day.
Which introduces the question: what are you waiting for? To graduate? To get married? To have children? To retire?
Life is about the journey, not the destination!
Your life is here and now, your family is here and now, your marriage is here and now, your career is here and now.
The journey takes place every day, and you can find meaning when you search for a greater purpose. You can find small joys every day if you have eyes of faith.
Solomon recognized that ultimately we all end up at the same destination-the grave. The only difference lies in how much we enjoy the journey.
Instead of obsessing over the things you can’t control, focus on what you can control and leave the rest to God.
Phil Cooke writes:
“I have to believe that God’s in control, and for me to always demand answers is to assume His role. I’ve decided to sit back and let Him be God and let me be me.”
That’s a philosophy we would all do well to adopt!
