What's the Point?

Posted on 28 May, 2022 at 9:45

It was as if the breath was stilled in the room. Twice I heard this question this week, “what is the point?” I had to pause as I quieted the same internal question and sat with hurting people. I’ve asked that question more than a few times in my life. It’s a question asked at times of sorrow, confusion and frustration. A legitimate question when we are overwhelmed with the unexpected or challenging turns of life. I’ve asked it when sitting with teenage girls in detention, offering them what little I can. I’ve asked it when my efforts to change a hurt or a system are rendered useless. I’ve even asked it in small things like, what’s the point of this exercise.

As I wrestle with that question I hear the underlying need to experience “meaning.” A core human need is to know that our life has meaning. And we typically measure meaning by visible results that say we have succeeded.

Living a meaningful life is not dependent upon what you accomplish. I suggest to you that living a meaningful life means you “show up.” Independent of results, you show up. You express and live out of who you are. That expression is exactly what God needs and designed you to express. And the richest expression of a meaningful life is seen through connection.

  • The artist who painted the picture that connects to my heart – showed up.
  • The singer who releases his passion in that song that reminds me of hope – showed up.
  • The person who sent me a card saying they thought of me today – showed up.
  • The friend who looked deeply and directly into my eyes – showed up.

All simple connecting expressions that bring meaning to the giver and receiver.

Go show up today! Your life and the connections you make by showing up are the point!

I want to express my thanks to the writer just for rescuing me from this type of difficulty. Just after exploring through the the web and seeing principles which are not helpful, I believed my entire life was done. Living devoid of the approaches to the difficulties you've solved through the guide is a serious case, as well as the ones which may have negatively affected my career if I hadn't discovered your web page. That training and kindness in maneuvering all areas was invaluable. I'm not sure what I would've done if I hadn't encountered such a step like this. I am able to now look ahead to my future. Thank you so much for the specialized and results-oriented guide. I will not hesitate to propose your web blog to any person who should receive direction about this area.

I intended to write you this very small remark to finally give many thanks over again regarding the beautiful knowledge you've discussed in this case. This is so shockingly open-handed with you to offer openly precisely what many people would have marketed for an ebook to earn some profit for themselves, particularly considering the fact that you could have done it if you ever desired. Those ideas also served like the good way to know that other people online have the identical dreams the same as mine to learn more on the topic of this issue. I'm sure there are millions of more fun times up front for folks who find out your website.

I must show thanks to you for rescuing me from this type of predicament. As a result of surfing around through the world-wide-web and meeting advice that were not pleasant, I thought my entire life was done. Being alive devoid of the strategies to the difficulties you have resolved as a result of your posting is a crucial case, as well as those which might have in a wrong way damaged my career if I hadn't come across your web blog. Your actual ability and kindness in maneuvering all the pieces was vital. I'm not sure what I would have done if I hadn't discovered such a step like this. It's possible to at this point relish my future. Thanks a lot very much for your reliable and result oriented guide. I won't think twice to suggest your blog to any individual who needs to have support on this situation.
