· Life Quotes,Life Journey,Personal Development,Spiritual Journey,Testimony

In a person's lifetime, there are many opportunities to grow, and attain "self actualization," a term coined famously by Abraham Maslow, in his theory called the Hierarchy of Needs. Essentially, a person seeks to find the meaning of life, maximizing their growth potential to experience an ideal lifestyle. However, how can one truly know what the "ideal lifestyle" truly is if there is no blueprint to pattern after? Is there such a blueprint? In the Creationist Worldview, which documents the creation of the universe and the world we live in six days. We are introduced to the Supreme Being, Almighty God "Yahweh," the Creator of "Heaven and Earth, the stars, all living creatures, and mankind. The Holy Bible documents the entire Creation Account in Genesis 1-3 , as well of how the story of all life forms unfold throughout all sixty-six books, from Genesis to Revelations. Among the Holy Scriptures, we also find lessons and word of wisdom to help mankind grow spiritually and ultimately find the true meaning of life in the Book of Proverbs.

The Meaning of Life:

An post on JW.org says it perfectly:

 

The Bible’s answer:

The question of the meaning of life may be asked in many ways, such as Why are we here? or Does my life have a purpose? The Bible shows that our purpose in life is to build a friendship with God. Consider some of these fundamental truths that the Bible reveals.

  • God is our Creator. The Bible says: “It is [God] that has made us, and not we ourselves.”​—Psalm 100:3; Revelation 4:11.

  • God has a purpose for everything he creates, including us.​—Isaiah 45:18.

  • God created us with a “spiritual need,” which includes the desire to find meaning in life. (Matthew 5:3) He wants us to satisfy that desire.​—Psalm 145:16.

  • We fill our spiritual need by building a friendship with God. Although the idea of being God’s friend might seem far-fetched to some, the Bible gives us this encouragement: “Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you.”​—James 4:8; 2:23.

  • To become God’s friend, we must live in harmony with his purpose for us. The Bible states this purpose at Ecclesiastes 12:13: “Have reverence for God, and obey his commands, because this is all that we were created for.”​—Good News Translation.

  • In the future, we can experience in full God’s original purpose for us when he eliminates suffering and grants everlasting life to his friends, those who worship him.​—Psalm 37:10, 11.

So, the meaning of life is to acknowledge its origin through the supernatural handy work of our Creator out of love, and to learn how to fellowship with God our Creator and one another. By reverencing God and obeying his commands we fulfill our calling and need to exist. There is no need to look anywhere else, feel lost, or depleted because we are wholesome and complete in God, for everything was created for us. Hence, we lack nothing. Our name is tied to a "holy nation of people" created by a loving Father.

Personal Testimony:

On his Journey, a young man by the name of Ernest Lemuel Waith, recently expressed his need to do a complete name change. Listen to his personal testimony here:

Well, we just heard about young Mr. Waith's reason for changing his name to Ernest Lemuel Waith. He asserts in his video that there was such trauma and negativity surrounding his parent's marriage and divorce, which spewed into his own life. This is really sad for such a young man and countless others like him to experience such a meaningless life. It is really brave and noble of him to express to the world why he found no use in the name given to him at birth. Name's have meanings and can also affirm a person's behavior. With a new name comes a new way of thinking, a lifestyle and purpose for living. Mr. Waith has exemplified why every human being should seek to find the true meaning of life and their own individual purpose.

Mr. Waith is also a graduate of Liberty University, and is a champion for those who don't have a voice. His work extends into personal ministries, non-profit management, screenwriting, filmmaking via Youtube, web development and digital marketing for major companies. Most of all, Mr. Waith is a man devoted to God, a beloved son whom his mother instructs, brother and friend. You can follow Mr. Waith professionally on Linkedin, and listen to his wise sayings on Instagram and all social media handles.

Call To Action:

What are you going to do today to change your life for the better? Are you on the path to finding the true meaning of life? If not, why not? If not now, when? If not you, then who?

Love and Light,

Be very careful, then, how you live ---not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. ~ Ephesians 5:15-16 | NIV
