Everything has its season, and every part of creation has a purpose.
I believe there is a higher power whom I call God, giving everything created in this universe a purpose. Scientific evidence may be explanation enough for some, but there is a curiosity indwelling inside of me that speaks of a power greater than you and I, giving instruction to the realm of creation in which we are a critical member of. This power, telling the sun when to rise and set every day or when the seasons of the year are to be rotated, fills me with curiosity and excitement. Every human being, tree, flower, insect, animal, foul of the air, and creatures of the sea has a purpose.
I watched the movie “A Dog’s Purpose” and while the movie is classified as a comedy-drama it was like viewing a “Hallmark” movie. The premise of the movie involves a dog who is reincarnated multiple times, trying to understand the meaning of his existence. With each new birth, he is introduced to a new family, with varied lifestyles. Some good, some not. In the end, as the dog narrates his multiple journeys, he remembers certain smells and associates them with familiar circumstances and people. In the end, the dog discovers his purpose: “Be here now!”
Whatever ‘here’ is and wherever ‘here’ maybe, just “Be here now!” That is sometimes all the purpose you need to do what must be done in this present moment.
