Are you in your right place?
If unhappy at work, one might wonder if they are in the right job.
If unhappy in a relationship, one might wonder if they are with the right person.
If struggling to fit into a certain community, one might wonder if they should move to a different one.
Finding our right place is an important part of living happy and healthy.
If you’re wondering whether you are in your right place or not, take heart. There’s hope! You can find your right place by taking your thought to the right place. With God! God is an all-knowing Mind that knows your right place.
Right place is a state of Mind. It’s not of the human mind which fluctuates, is unpredictable, and often promises good one day and takes it away the next. Right place is knowing what God knows, seeing what God sees, and living true to what God wants us to be doing.
For instance, if one is moping around at work, feeling sorry for themselves, and radiating negativity, their thought is not in its right place. It’s in a dark place that is unpleasant, and it’s no wonder that person feels misery. Their thought is in the wrong place. But change that attitude from one of self-pity to being Love in action, and a negative experience can immediately turn into a positive one.
When our thought is in its right place, our experience is much better.
If you’re struggling about your right place, start your quest for the right place with prayer to see if your thought is in its right place.
When your thought is in its right place with God, you’ll hear God’s direction and know whatever you need to know to discern your right place. If an outward change is needed, it will become apparent how, when and where. If a greater appreciation for what one already has is warranted, that will become apparent too.
Right place begins with God. Start there, and anything else good will follow.
“Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts” (I John 5:21, NLT).
