Would you agree that it's no surprise that people who exercise consistently are the ones who are in better shape than the ones who don't? And would you concur that it's also no surprise that we seldom see a sluggard person who stays with anything for any considerable amount of time? Why do you think that is? Does it remind you of a particular scripture perhaps? Namely, Proverbs 13:4, which says, "a sluggard’s appetite is never filled, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied." Clearly, one has a purpose and is willing to work at it and one doesn't, right?
I believe you're more like the diligent one -- the one on the road of purpose. Notice how you read and listen to devotionals. I would even bet that you do much more than that. You're the one who is going to become one of the fittest, because you stayed the course. You showed up. You are running your race. Yes, you're the one who God knows is working at it and you're doing your best. You're the one who believes Romans 8:28 -- that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
As long as you see yourself in great and magnificent places, then you will get there. You know the purpose God has for you. And as Romans 8:28 says, God is working on your behalf, because you love Him and that means something to Him. And He's going to ensure your purpose is manifested. So keep working, keep trying different things, keep talking to different people, and keep going to different places. Something is bound to happen for you. I'm telling you, because God works for the good of those who love Him. It's as simple as that.
