“What am I doing with my life?” is an age old question that surfaces at least once in everyone’s lives. For some, it entraps them in the forces of depression and discouragement; for others, it enlivens the possibility of life- that the teamwork of joy and purpose would set them apart. Hence, this question is the check-up and examination of who we are ; it’s a moment to wade into quiet waters from our turbulent settings.
However, recently, I’ve framed my perspective to ask a different question: “What is God doing in my life?”. I’ve been learning that I am the ark of the covenant- measured and bound by His love and reinforced through my testimony- that I have been placed at the Mercy Seat. At this seat, I imperatively declare that God is doing awesome things in my life. It’s my praise and affection for Him- while it’s hard to justify that I am changing the world or creating a plateau for myself, my thoughts are more imminently pressed for His kingdom: “God is awesome”.
