One day at a time I pray for wisdom.

Proverbs 20:1
Wine is a mocker,
Strong drink is a brawler,
And whoever is led astray by it is not wise.

The trees and fields don't frustrate themselves asking what God is up to, neither does the ocean. There is no desperate yearning to know the purpose of life. They just rejoice in what they were created to do. It is a good example to follow.

1 Chronicles 16:31-33
Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad;
And let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.”
Let the sea roar, and all its fullness;
Let the field rejoice, and all that is in it.
Then the trees of the woods shall rejoice before the Lord,
For He is coming to judge the earth.

I have had nights like this.

Psalm 77:1-3
I cried out to God with my voice—To God with my voice;
And He gave ear to me.
In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord;
My hand was stretched out in the night without ceasing;
My soul refused to be comforted.
I remembered God, and was troubled;
I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah

You work so hard, but somehow it is just not satisfying. God knows, you may be fishing from the wrong side of the boat.

John 21:5-6
Then Jesus said to them, “Children, have you any food?”They answered Him, “No.”
And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish.

I can lose my perspective so easily. Nothing encourages me more than reading the Bible.

John 16:33
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
