Before the world was made, God had you in mind. I know it is hard for us to even believe this, but the Bible says it is true. God called the prophet Jeremiah and told him that he had been chosen before the foundations of the world had been set. The same is true for all of us. The life God has for us was laid out in eternity, in the heart of God.
You were always on the mind of God, and he wants you to experience the life he has for you. Before you can begin the journey in finding this life, you have to believe it is waiting for you. Too many times we buy the lie the world tells us when we believe there is nothing special or unique about us. We begin living a life of mediocrity. We simply try to get by. We exist, but we don't truly live. We get overwhelmed and stressed out by the minor issues in our lives, and when major challenges get thrown in our face, we are tempted to give up on hope.
Be encouraged because you are breathing....there is a reason why you are here! Maybe you have given up on ever finding purpose in life. Perhaps you think it something out there for others...but not for you. Maybe you are surrounded by chaos but the loudest noise you hear is the screaming in your soul for something more. Answer that call, because it is from God.
Even if you haven't thought about God in a long time, he has always been thinking of you. You story starts in his heart, and it began in eternity. The journey begins with you believing you actually have an extraordinary life to live. Choose to believe.
