Feeling Aimless?

Beth Jones

"So I do not run aimlessly…." 1 Corinthians 9:26, ESV

Are you running aimlessly? Running in circles? Running towards no particular target? Are you just killing time? Cruising through life? Going through the motions?

Summer (we’re almost there!) is usually a good season to reevaluate and recalibrate. It’s a great time to talk to the Lord and ask questions about your life – the past, present and future. Where are you heading? What are you shooting for? What God-given goals are you reaching for?

After running hard in ministry for 30+ years, celebrating our 25th anniversary as a church, celebrating 30 years of marriage and launching The Basics With Beth TV program around the globe…I have been asking the Lord to clarify, crystalize and bring into clearer focus His target for me for the next several decades of ministry, marriage and life. I want to run with His purpose in clear view. I want to keep up the pace He desires for my life so that I stay in my lane, hit the tape and finish my course with joy. How about you?

We need to check up on ourselves from time to time. It’s easy to spend your life “running aimlessly” by focusing on important, but insignificant things. It’s easy to fall into the trap of going nowhere and ending up in the same spot year after year. It's easy to find yourself living a life that consists of nothing more than answering emails, keeping up with Facebook and Instagram, pleasing people, checking off boxes, washing clothes, mowing the lawn, eating food, watching TV, and sleeping. Sounds pretty aimless doesn’t it?

So, c’mon – what is your purpose? Why are you on the planet at this time? What gifts, experiences, expertise, know-how and knowledge do you possess that others need? What are you doing to empower others? What kind of influence are you having? What type of impact is your life making? What matters to you? To God? 

Today, why not take some time to think about the answers to these statements...

I believe that I exist to:

I am experienced, gifted, knowledgeable and an expert in these things:

I am empowering (helping, blessing, teaching, encouraging) others in these ways:

I am impacting eternity through these things:

I am influencing (motivating, inspiring, modeling, multiplying, reproducing) influencers in these ways:

The God-given targets I see in front of me look like this:

Then, run towards the target! Don’t run aimlessly – run with purpose. Run for the prize. Go after the high calling of God in Christ. Don’t waste your life – spend it! Aim and then run.

“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:14, KJV)

Say This: “Father, I do not want to waste my life. I want to spend it in meaningful ways. Help me to run my race with purpose! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

P.S. - If you want to go deeper into discovering your purpose, your mission, the vision God has for your life and more, I invite you to check out my online course The Inspired Life: Living The Life You Love. I launched this course late last year and have seen hundreds of people find their “target” in life by going through the 25+ video lessons, downloadable worksheets and of course, the help of the Lord. I’ll even let you in on a special promo code that we’re using for our TV show that will give you 50% off the course - just use BASICSTV when you register. Learn more at thebasicsuniversity.com
