12 verses that give meaning to our life


Waking up aimlessly is incredibly disheartening. Yet you know that God has something good in store for you. You know that God created you for a purpose. So how do you keep this truth in mind when you feel like a lost ship adrift at sea?

God is God and He does all things for good, including your life, according to His purposes. Nothing can happen without God commanding it. If you feel aimless, ask God for wisdom and guidance.

It is written in James 1:5:

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all simply and without reproach, and it will be given to him. "
