One of Those Days

Ever feel this way?
Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun— all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labor under the sun.
I wasn’t focusing on the ‘life with your wife’ part, but the ‘all the days of this meaningless life’ part. The writer here is Solomon – supposedly the wisest man ever. Not sure if he was wise because God gave him wisdom or he was wise because he experienced life and learned the hard way.
Anyway, the dude was hurting when he wrote this! Bad day, bad week, bad month, bad year maybe. Yet, in his negativity, I think he speaks for where many of us find ourselves often. We look at our life and think, ‘Is it worth it?’
Got to admit having one of those moments this past weekend. Why God? What is the purpose of all of this? What is life all about?
These are the days we have to look for inspiration from somewhere – your friends, your spouse, your kids, etc. I know when I get to those points in my life, I have to look towards God. No one else can make me ‘feel better’. I have to reach out to God and say, ‘This is where I am, now lead me.’ And in those times, I find God leads me in ways I never expected…

  1. Amazing how we get our messages! I have been trying to avoid the moments of “make me feel better” this week/month. And, as stated above “God has lead me in ways that I wasn’t expecting!”
