Meaning to the meaningless
Ecclesiastes 5:10 – Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. This too is meaningless.
This is just one of the many verses within Ecclesiastes, which talks about life without God being meaningless. It’s a good point – one that can make you think so hard that it causes a massive self-induced headache. It actually scares me to think what is the point of all this? What is the point in us all being on Earth? What are we all striving for here? Fame? Money? Happiness? The perfect relationship? A big, happy family?
It’s made pretty clear in Ecclesiastes that if those are the things we’re aiming for in life, we’re bound to be disappointed.
I made the point of praying specifically about this today. I have been praying that every door to every part of my life is open for God to enter. I pray that He walks in and adds meaning. That there isn’t an aspect of my life that doesn’t have Him in.
I don’t want to look back on my life one day and think that all of it was meaningless. I want God to make my everyday meaningful for His greater purpose.
It’s definitely easier said than done, but that’s when God works best. He makes the impossible, possible.
That job that you hate, and have no idea how you can incorporate God into it – don’t worry because God will do it. Keep praying and keep persevering, and you’ll see Him work little by little.
