Losing Purpose

no purposeI mentioned yesterday that this has been a boring week.

I thought about that a little today.

I said this mainly because this week has been totally out of the ordinary. I’m done with school and haven’t had the usual week of work. Because of my busy schedule during school I don’t have a lot of free time to develop some great friendships that I can give more time to when I have more free time. Instead, I tend to just turn on the tv more to burn the extra time.

At the end of the day, I think I am more than bored…I feel purposeless.

I gather a lot of my purpose from my studies at school and from my job.

I haven’t been able to interact with anyone I work with consistently in 2 weeks, I haven’t interacted with anyone in our bands in 2 weeks, I haven’t played with the band for a while, and I’ve been done with school for a week.

Isn’t it amazing how lame life can be when it lacks purpose?

Finding purpose in my job and studies isn’t bad because they are good things, things that God has placed in my life for a reason. But when they become my whole purpose then my life lacks Godly vision. And I think that is where I find myself tonight.

My prayer tonight is that I’ll submit myself to what God has in store during this month off from school.

And by the way…if you are bored too and want to hang out. Let’s do it!
