Meaningless! Chasing after the winds of vanity we move at the speed of light following a path not known hoping to find purpose. Suffocated we run, thirsty we run a million miles towards fulfilment but find none.
We search so desperately, so much we indulge in ungodly behavior by drinking up our misery, dancing in the tune of adultery, pouring our frustration on others and why is honesty long forgotten?
Like fools we search leaving no stone unturned, we dig so deep we can’t climb out. But do we ever find it? This reason for living? We try so hard but every turn leads us back to the same spot we began.
1) Who am I?
A question so many ask but are too afraid to admit. So we put on a good show, our lives seem perfect but if you look a little closer you realize it’s all a sham. Lost we all seek our identity and without it we are like a boat at sea tossed back and forth by waves unknown.
2) What is my purpose?
Why am I here? We search but in vain to find meaning, so we try
The sermon is nice, the leaders are okay, the word is true, the family is the perfect example of love but something is missing.
Day and night we read to gain knowledge but the void still remains.
We surrender our body to it for a good cause hopping to find meaning
A life with no ties no comment no responsibility. We get wasted partying every weekend but Monday morning is a reminder that the meaningless cycle begins all over again.
3) What is my destination?
There is nothing more frightening than the great unknown, chasing a life not known wondering if tomorrow you’ll be or back to your maker you returned in HEAVEN. But still you wonder…who is worthy to stand at its gate…
“It is vanity we are chasing, meaningless living. “
We try so hard to find (Ecclesiastes) except the one place we can truly find (IN CHRIST ALONE) meaning, purpose and worth.
