The Destination Is There

A few people just started a new job at a retail store, they are going to be working the back room breaking down loads and sorting freight besides unloading trucks. They have no idea what they are getting themselves into. They start to walk towards the back room and to their horror it is such a mess. They are second thinking about even working.

What can they do, where do they even start? All they can do is complain to each other, they almost decided to quit but decide if they won't do anything, who will?
They decide to start somewhere, they know that starting is better than doing nothing. Soon they find themselves making great progress. After a few days the backroom looks great, it's so organized and has even caught the attention of the store management. They both get a bonus and a nice promotion.

In life, we seem to find ourselves in similar situations whether it's in a job or at home. We feel overwhelmed by what's going on in life, we don't know where to begin. We end up just sitting back and letting things get worse. We just need to take the first step and find that destination that is there. We always think that we can do it without the Lord, we end up getting discouraged and failing again and again. We just need to let the Lord lead us. It can be anything relating to our lives, if we don't have Jesus in our lives we will continually feel pressured to give up on everything. Remember, we can do nothing apart from the Lord.

There is a destination in everyone, they may not see it. They may just let it pass them by each and everyday. God has a great plan for our lives, if we choose to ignore it we will miss out on the oportunity to do great things.

We each have that destination that is there, it's upto us to take that direction towards something great. We have to set our sights on the promises and go for what the Lord has intended us to do. We can choose to think that we don't have a gift, but we all do. We just have to search deep down and find what makes us special.

God wouldn't put it in your spirit if it wasn't there, you just have to believe in yourself and take the first step. Ask the Lord to lead you in that direction which will ultimately make you a better person, a greater joy you will enjoy as well.
