I've always found the question "without God, how do you have meaning?" really odd. Aside from not really seeing how God creates meaning to begin with, those who ask it don't dedicate their lives to God. Apart from believing in God, it's hard to see how their life really differs from mine or anyone else's. The only real functional difference is in the potential for an afterlife and that if you do the wrong thing God might give you brain cancer. Beyond that it's the same reality we reside in. So unless life is dedicated to God then the simple answer is "the same way you do".
