Man Sitting In Valley

What am I here for? What am I supposed to do with my life? Why does it seem like I can never get out of the place that I am currently in?
These questions are not easy to face, especially when we are stuck in a place in life where it does not seem like we are making much progress. It can be even more difficult experiencing this in a generation where we constantly see our peers posting images on social media that show off how magnificent their own lives are. It seems as though everyone else has it all figured out, and are having the time of their lives while doing so. You may ask yourself why you are the one that is missing out. Here is the key to this uncomforting feeling that is brought on by these thoughts: everybody else is in the same position as you. Everybody, especially at a younger age, is going through the same questioning of their purpose here on Earth. They may see other people on social media, so they want to display the same self-assuredness, but hidden behind the flashy pictures and updates is the same uncertainty and self-doubt that you are facing.
Now, you might say there is no way that I am going to discover my purpose, I am stuck in a rut and do not know what to do or where to go. It seems as if you have been in the same place forever and nothing is coming your way. Life is full of peaks and valleys, and just because you are currently facing what may seem like an endless valley, know that God sees the peak that is on the other side. He knows the troubles that you are facing, and He has purposely placed you in this situation because He knows that it will help shape you into that person that you will ultimately become. There are no mistakes or wasted moments, you are exactly where you need to be right now. It is on us to look around at our current situation and learn whatever we can from it. Take every opportunity that you can to grow as an individual, and once that happens, you will start to notice yourself becoming a stronger, wiser and more capable version of yourself that you never knew existed. It is then that you will be able to continue on your path to fulfilling your purpose here on Earth.
It might be scary wondering if you will ever be able to overcome whatever obstacle that you are facing, but it is intended that way. Putting your faith in God will provide you with the courage to face this fear. God purposely places the best things in life on the other side of fear, so that it is through Him that you are able to attain it and become the best version of yourself.
So do not get down on yourself whenever you see others who seem like they have everything figured out and are somehow getting more out of life than you are. Remember that you are exactly where you need to be, and you will make it through this because you have made it through every obstacle that you have ever faced. God does not waste a lesson. Faith will help you take that next step, and you will see that what God has in store for you is greater than anything that you could imagine for yourself.
