Finding Your True Fulfillment

Today’s Episode

Finding fulfillment and joy in life can be hard to come by. I struggled with this for the longest time, looking to be satisfied by my pursuits, pleasures, possessions… But my greatest fulfillment came when I followed Jesus into what He refers to as His harvest field. It’s a metaphor Jesus uses to describe serving and loving people in His Kingdom. You have a unique place in God’s mission to this world! And accomplishing His call on your life is where the joy and fulfillment comes! 

In this episode, we’ll also see that when our circumstances are the darkest we can sometimes see Jesus with the greatest clarity. I share a lot of my own personal experiences in our last episodes of the Jesus Changes Everything collection! So Join us today and invite your friends to listen along.
