You were created to glorify your Creator. Yes. You.
You were created to fill a place in this world that was made just for you! You were created on purpose, not just to hold your breath and wait for the end, but to revel in your life, to bring a smile to your Creator as you find meaning and joy in the journey He laid out for you.
Feel like you're banging your head against the wall? Feel suffocated and squeezed?
Pause. Calm down. And look up.
My favourite book says, "I will lift up my eyes to the hills, from where my help comes."
Help is standing by. When you feel overwhelmed, look up. When you feel bogged down, look up. When it feels like you're going under, look up!
You were created to reflect awesome beauty; to live in a state of peace. That doesn't mean that everything around you will always be peaceful and beautiful. We do get those perfect moments, but even better than that is that the same One who made us has also made it possible for His beauty and peace to be reflected in and through us.
We weren't put here just to grind out our days in frustration and misery.
Take a breath, look up, Help is there. And get ready to bask in the joy that you were made to reflect.
