When you hit bottom, when dreams give way to disappointment, when all you’ve worked so hard for goes to pieces, you are tempted to despair. In extreme situations you may be tempted to just give up and stop trying.

That’s when you must remember that you were created for a purpose, and that purpose isn’t a single, one-time thing; it’s multifaceted and complex. As long as you live, there will be something more you can accomplish, something more you are meant to accomplish, and there is always more to learn in life. The end of one path doesn’t mean the end of all paths. Just as the seasons come and go in their cycle, so periods of success or setback, fulfillment or disappointment, and emotional highs and lows come and go. You may be on the down end of the cycle now, but that won’t last forever.

The sooner you come to Me and share all your concerns and cares with Me, the sooner you will find new inspiration and purpose. The best may be just around the corner, but you’ll never know if you stop here. Take My hand and let Me lead you into a new season of fruitfulness and fulfillment.
