A Wasted Life?

It Is Written, Jeremiah 29:11, for I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
It is common for people to look back at their lives and feel that it was wasted. Feeling that life was wasted has different meaning for different people.
Suppose you feel that your job has no meaning. You think that if you had a more fulfilling job, your life would mean something. Maybe your dreams for whatever, never even came close to fulfillment. You think if they were, you would feel like your life was not wasted.
Sometimes it is hard for people to grasp what life is all about. The reason is, we do not look at our lives, the way God sees them. Life is a journey, designed by God, to get us back to Him. He allows some trials in order to test us. His instruction manual ( the Bible ), tells us exactly how to do that. Among other things, it tells of the importance of trusting God.
We have a choice. We can believe in and trust God, or not. Those who trust God, let the Holy Spirit direct their lives. If they do, problems still come up, and disappointments still happen, but God helps us through them.
If we choose to do everything our way, things will usually go wrong, and get worse. satan is happy when we do it our way, because we are following his plan, for a wasted life, and ultimate destruction.
If in your life, you succeeded in finding Jesus and salvation, you did not waste your life. You are the child of God who can call God, Father. You have won the ultimate prize, and fulfilled the destiny that God had planned before time began. God bless you and your family. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
