Question

I get so confused about my life, where I am, where am going and things I should be doing. What can I do about this?

Answer

Thank you so much for your question. Life can be very confusing and so many people have different ideas. As a Christian I believe that God is our creator. He has made and designed us.

O Lord , you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. (Psalm 139:1-3)

He knows us completely and so His word, the Bible. should be our guide to life.

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. (Psalm 119:105)

The Bible tells us clearly that we are all separated from God because of all that we’ve done wrong.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23)

Continuing on this course will lead to death judgement and ultimately hell.

But God loves us: He sent Jesus into this world to save us, to transform us and enable us to have life with him that we were created for. Jesus said,

"I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it abundantly". (John 10:10)

If we turn from our wrong ways of living and thinking against God and trust in the wonderful work of Christ for us we can have eternal life.

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)

We can have a relationship with God. Our ultimate destination is heaven, to be in the presence of our God, free from sin in perfect joy forever.

This doesn’t mean that everything in life is always completely clear; sometimes things can be confusing, but I trust in God who incredibly has a plan for my life and knew me and loved me even before the world was created.

In summary, it is only through trusting in what Jesus has done that our lives will ever make sense. We were made to be in relationship with God and this broken relationship is only restored through Christ.

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me". (John 14:6)
