It’s time to move forward but remember...you must focus on a destination, or you will inevitably end up in the wrong place. Where do you want to go in life? What is your personal purpose?
I’ll never forget my big transition at the age of twenty. My personal goal was to play professional hockey after getting a college degree. My dad always insisted that I get a degree from a university. He knew an injury could ruin an athletic career, so I needed something to fall back on. Thanks, Dad, you were right again. Apart from those pearls of wisdom, I didn’t receive a lot of wise career counseling. Life was simple: play hockey in college and then go to the NHL. It seemed simple until it wasn’t. The more I achieved, the emptier I felt. There was something missing in my journey.
Is there something missing in your journey?
Eventually, I started looking into different religions, philosophies, partying, and whatever new thing came along. Until a few young men came into our dressing room after hockey practice and shared about a personal relationship with Jesus. They spoke about the abundant life, and they told us that Jesus was knocking on the door of our lives.
Relationship? Abundant life? Were they speaking a foreign language? I’d never heard about this stuff. One week later, my eldest brother told me the same thing.
Are you in a relationship with Jesus? Is He your focus?
Hebrews 12 encourages us: “looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2, NKJV)
My prayer for you today is that you will start a relationship with Him or renew it. Get your focus on Jesus because He’ll help you find purpose and significance.
We have a wonderful promise in 2 Corinthians: “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 3:18, NKJV)
The journey with Jesus helps you become a miracle.
