Last time, I talked about cakes and the fact that they are not made by accident nor made by themselves. And it’s the same thing with people. We are not made by accident, nor can we make ourselves.
So, our topic for today!
Can a cake decide a purpose for itself?
Of course, that’s not possible, right?
The purpose is cherished in the heart of the person who created the cake. A cake may be created for different purposes- to make others smile, to earn money, or just because it looks cool- but the purpose is not decided by the cake itself.
In the same way, a person who was created by someone cannot decide the purpose of his own life. Instead, that purpose is cherished in the heart of the One who made him.
So, what on earth are the thoughts of the One who made me!?
A good patissiere (my definition lol) makes the best cake with a good purpose to make others happy and to make others smile. So, how about the One who made people?
Even if the times change, or the sun goes out, or countries disappear- no matter what kind of disaster happens- there is one thing that will never change. And that is this: God is a good God.
And, the One who created us- the only One who can create people- is that God!
In other words, you are created with a good purpose. Like a patissiere who creates a cake with the utmost effort and intentions like, “I hope people who eat this will smile,” our good God created you with His utmost effort and intentions like, “Through this child, I hope that the world will be brighter.”
That’s why it’s okay not to put all your effort into searching for or creating your own purpose for your life. Because that purpose is already cherished in God’s heart, and that purpose is something that is way more amazing and exciting than the purposes we can imagine.
Let’s go and find that!
