Lately, I’ve been driving through life feeling as though I’ve lost my purpose. Like I’m not getting to it quick enough. My mental gas light is on and I don’t know who to call. I have reached a point that I feel like I’ve been riding around aimlessly and my $19 fill up is just about through. (Yes, only $19.)
Have you ever reached a point in life where you have become unsure of which direction to go? Like your destination is oh so far away? My life currently. If you said yes to any of those questions then I speak to both you and myself when I say, it’s time to fuel up.
We have to remember that sometimes God sends us down longer roads because we aren’t mentally ready for our destination or simply because that is just not the destination He has intended for us. With that, we can’t just put on our hazards and pull over to the side of the road. Keep driving.

It takes a strong person to remain steadfast, even when times are hard and trials seem endless because it is in those moments that you want to give up. You have to have unwavering courage and faith. Now I get that sometimes a pit stop is needed to get back focused, but don’t stay too long. Be hopeful, not hopeless. Buckle up for it will definitely be a ride. Everyhing I want to accomplish seems so far out of reach and what bothers me the most is that I feel as though I’m doing the best I can. But am I really? Are you? Honestly, I’ve been doing more doubting than taking action. It’s time to switch into overdrive, time to attack life at a different speed. Don’t beat your self up because your gas light is on. Hey, we all have to fill our tank every now and then. (I’m sure Iyanla has moments when she needs her own life fixed.) Hit cruise control and trust in the Lord to be your guide. Be your own source of positive energy and remain steadfast. Your destination awaits you.
Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. (1 Corinthians 15:58)
Headed to the gas station,
