This thought, or way of living, has been on my mind for some time now.
When we live for God we're living our lives properly, rightside up. However, when we live in sin (or what the world will tell you is normal: Ref Romans 1:18-23) and seperate ourselves from God's love that's upside down.
You see, we we're made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26) and to live for God and through God. Then and only then do we live life the way God intended.
Confusion. That is the number one thing I see in people not living for God. Always pursuing what they desire and want. But this is fleeting. Time rips apart the "well laid plans of man" and the things that we build or lives on. Confusion sets in. The questions begin to flow and the wonder of something greater or more meaningful arises.
God offers zero confusion when we live for His glory. The world gives nothing but confusion.
