How would your life change if it was an open book? You have stories and secrets you haven’t told anyone…and everything would be different if you were honest with yourself and others.

“What do you want to have spent your life doing?” I wrestled with that question all day Saturday. Sunday came, and so did Pastor Craig’s sermon about where we go (the bad place? the good place?) after we breathe our last.
“I want to go home” was all I could think for three years — the whole time I lived in Africa! “If I was at home right now, all my problems would be gone. I’d be safe and happy with my friends and family.”
When I lived in Africa — I taught missionaries’ kids at an American Christian school in Nairobi, Kenya — I was the loneliest, most homesick “missionary” I knew! I didn’t consider myself a missionary at the time, but I was definitely struggling with a bad case of homesickness.
Are you searching for God’s will for your life? You want to follow Jesus but you’re worried you’ll miss the mark. You’re starting to overthink every decision, step, future plan…and you feel paralyzed by indecision and anxiety.
I couldn’t decide if I should call this Blossom Tip “How to Stop Wasting Your Life Doing Meaningless Things” or “How I Wasted a Day With the Devil.” As you can see, “meaningless things” won! Which title would you have chosen? I’d love to know what you think in the comments below. Do you prefer 1 (How to Stop Wasting Your Life Doing Meaningless Things) or 2 (How I Wasted a Day With the Devil)?
