Have you ever been presented with an idea & then found yourself thinking so much into it that somewhere along the way you got irritated, frustrated & lost in what first began as an inspiring concept?
This is what happened for me when I was presented with having God as my only goal.
I've spent the greater part of two weeks trying to figure out 1) how to function without goals & 2) only seeing God as my future.
I can see where there can be & is value in functioning this way for many people.
However, at this time in my life, I have come to the conclusion that functioning without goals makes me of less value in serving the world than when I DO have goals.
With goals I am focused, present & have a great sense of achievement when something is accomplished.
Without goals I feel like a wanderer. A drifter. My negative self-talk increases. My irritations & frustrations are greater & more than anything, I am left with a great, overwhelming sense of confusion about what to do next.
It was as if when I threw my goals out the window, my sense of purpose left with it.
With that said, I believe there is a time & place for everything.
In another era of my time here, it may very well be true that functioning with God as my only purpose will serve me greatly.
But for now, having goals & conquering them excites me.
What I will do is to seek God in the goals I choose to pursue. I will take notice of resistance & choose surrender, always. God will forever be infused into my choices & actions.
But hey, maybe that's what the concept was hinting at all along, aye?
