I dare you to read this blog;

So I write this blog every week, pretty much without fail.

Many of you may well be thinking that I could surely make better use my time by earning millions and singing Karaoke Bieber? Because that’s how everyone spends their day off right? 

Or perhaps I could be true to Gloucestershire and become a farmer, spending my days on a combine ‘arvesterrrrr whilst passionately chewing straw.  I’d watch the world go by and greet everyone that passes with the phrase, ‘Alright, me loverrr’ Combine Harvester

But no – Not me. When not blogging, one might find me working with teenagers, performing comedy magic or tweeting nonsense. But there is one thing that underlines all of this, I’m living for an amazing God, who created the heavens and the earth.

These days, everyone has so much to live with, but nothing to live for – And I believe that this is why 75% of the UK say they lack purpose and meaning in life.

I came to recognise that you and I are no heavenly mistake but we have been created for a specific, unique purpose. Each of us should aim to be a first rate version of the person God made us to be, not a second rate person of someone else. The creator of the universe has given us a role to play because he values us as individuals. That alone is an incredible thought, because without the intention of the creator, the creation has no purpose or meaning.

We all have passions and dreams and it’s important to recognise that God honours them. In fact he created them. The bible says, ‘Take delight in God, and he will give you the desires of your heart.’

I’m not set to live a life of boredom or restriction, but I am passionate about spending every second of my living moments to fulfil a God given purpose.

What about you?

Do you have a sense of purpose and meaning?

Do you believe that God can give you the desires of your heart? 

Whether you believe in God or not – I’d like to offer to pray for anyone who reads this blog. Why not email, message, or text me with your request. All requests will be kept confidential. (info@laughingwithtom.co.uk)
