A Life of Significance

On the way home from LA today, we were stuck in traffic on the 405, also known as the largest parking lot in LA. I have been thinking a lot about the future lately. I think a lot of people my age struggle with a sense of significance. I do...

And as the lane we were in wasn't moving, and the cars on each side of us were driving past us, I had this thought "I don't want to become complacent or stagnant in my life while everyone else is moving forward. I don't want to stop because I can't figure out the next step or don't sense significance in what I am doing..."

I want my life to have significance. But I don't even know what that means. I know that I don't want to do a job just to do it. To wake up 20 years from now and wonder how I got in the job I am in...

What I think it comes down to is I want to do what God desires me to do. If that means an office job, being a stay at home mom, running the country...then I will feel or sense that what I am doing is significant. I want whatever I do to benefit the Kingdom of God. And that is possible just as much in a secular job as it is working at a church or for a religious non-profit.

And for now, I continue working at The Bridge. I love my job, but there are times that I sense there is something else to come.

What does living a life of significance mean to you?

Hey babe, Great post. I have always thought that there was more for you than what you are doing. But I am excited that you are a major part of the Bridge, and the direction it is heading. But, I will continue to pray for you, and continue to challenge you to not be a car on the 405 freeway... =)
