There is something deep inside our souls, intentionally placed there. It’s a desire to be connected to something bigger than we are, a longing for the feeling of home, or something we can’t quite put our finger on. We crave this magical, wondrous, butterflies-in-your-stomach, exhilarating, yet absolutely safe feeling, but it’s like trying to grasp a cloud. We want to be a part of something beautiful and meaningful, but if we get caught up in our daily routine of to-do’s, we don’t see how we can. We also start looking at others and become jealous of how seemingly amazing their lives are, and think how measly our lives are in comparison. This jealousy causes us to feel worthless, so we stop, and then our joy and desire seem to dry up. But we must not allow this to happen! We can’t bury our desires and talents out of fear or because we become too busy. Our lives only will have meaning and worth when we use the gifts our Creator has given us alone.
