Put me in my place

Many of us feel we simply do not fit in. It doesn't matter where we are, who we are with or what we are doing when it's all said and done and we are left alone once again something seems missing in our life. It might be a sense of fulfillment or accomplishment we lack but yet we seem to be busy enough. Many of us have substituted activity for active involvement.
We feel like spectators in our hearts even while we are players on the field. Your problem might be in suiting up for the wrong game. God has for those who walk with Him a place. It is one of both acceptance and fulfillment, one of destiny and desire. God has called us to a place by Him to work with Him that we may ultimately be found in Him. The opportunities limitless, the challenges exciting, the blessings unmistakable and the rewards eternal.
The Apostle Paul said, "Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives with liberality; he who leads with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness." I would encourage you until you feel you are where you are suppose to be in the Kingdom of God that your daily prayer would include these words, "Lord put me in my place."
