God Makes Everything Meaningful

Peace has been on my mind for a while now. I look around and it makes me sad at the chaos in the world. The discord between spouses, family members friends, countries. It makes me sad to know that people can feel disconnected from others. It makes me sad to see people hurting no matter what they may have done.

I find myself dissecting my actions and reactions and others actions and reactions to situations. Maybe I think too much. I don’t know. I find myself wanting to find answers to why people tend to find themselves in loneliness, in confusion, in searching for something more then what they have. I find myself wanting to help others in a marriage crisis because I never want to see a relationship hurt. I find myself thinking about what I can say to help people, but honestly where I use to think I had the answer to help them, now I don't feel like I do. I don't have any to the point answer to solve the situation that they may be in at the moment.

Saturday I was writing some thoughts out, and I was thinking about Solomon. The smartest man known in the bible searched out what is good. In Chapter two of Ecclesiastes he said this, "Come now, I will test you with pleasure to find out what is good." He said he did not deny himself anything. Throughout the book he talks about how he bought vineyards, houses, wives, etc. Everything he did he said it was meaningless. Yes it brought joy, but only for a time. After it was said and done he said it was meaningless. At the end of Ecclesiastes he said this. "Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil."

No matter what relationship he was in or what he accomplished, he noticed it all came back to one thing. God. God is the creator. I had a point for writing this about Solomon's insight. Earlier I said I have this heart to help people in distress. People who are sad. People that may have lost themselves for awhile. Maybe we do lose ourselves in money, fame, items, jobs, relationships sometimes. I believe that is a reason that people get confused. They get discontent. When we take the creator out of the equation, there is not purpose to the equations then. It's like chasing after the wind, and the wind overtakes you. It causes damage from the storm. You add God into the equation, then you get to walk through the wind unharmed. You get to walk into the promise land, you get to see the scripture lived out. You get to see the purpose for everyone in your life and everything. God is the one that gave every single person and thing a purpose. He wants to give you purpose, love, joy, and peace. I will end this post with this. You have purpose. Let God lead the way through every situation. Let the scripture be your map, and the holy spirit be your guide. Then, you will find the peace you long for.

One more point before I close. I do believe God desires for you to enjoy your time on earth. He wants you to have nice things because you are the King's sons and daughters. We just need to be careful to no let the thins consume us.
