Sometimes it feels like I'm just trudging along- reminding myself to face each week as it's own set of challenges. So that's why my answer was "I don't."
Well, low and behold I was talking to another friend of mine and we came upon the subject of purpose. Christian's especially tend to look to the future with excitement. And of course, usually a bit of fear. But how many of have heard a fellow believer say, " I can't wait for the Lord's return." It seems like we are typically the first ones to scoff at our time here on earth. But think about who put us here in the first place. Does God ever do anything that doesn't fit within his plan? Of course not! God put us on this earth for a reason, and that is where purpose comes in. Life here isn't to be wasted. We are supposed to be seeking the Lord's will and carrying it out. We are here for a reason.
The phrase, "I don't" should be replaced with, "God does." It's important for our focus to always be directed onto Him. We within our own strength cannot make it through life on our own, if we are to do His work.
"And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation."
