Hello everyone, this is my first time posting on here and I have a question for the community..
I'm going through a difficult time in my life right now, and have lately found myself questioning the purpose of life, to counter my depression I've been focusing on hope for the future and the gift of eternal life which brings me to my problem..
I've filled my self with so much hope for heaven that all I can think about is doing what ever it is God want's of my life and then moving on to heaven and the next life as quickly as possible, life in our fallen world is depressive and difficult and all I have is hope for the future. I don't see the purpose for living in this world beyond doing what God wants of me.
I can't see any experience or pleasure in this world that can't be experienced in heaven and the next life. What does this world have that I can hold hope for that will encourage me to keep struggling?
It seems wrong to just focus on doing what God wants as soon as possible and moving into the next life with as little time spent in this world. What are some thoughts and helpful tips that I can use to stop being blinded into just focusing on the reward of eternal life and watch where I put my feet in the present?
I feel like; as I am now, I might miss the reason and purpose God put me on earth!
Sorry if this comes off confusing, I can try and elaborate more if needed.
