Purpose

Advertisements

Your path and destiny upon the earth are wrapped in two words—divine purpose! You are not an accident, an afterthought, or a mistake. You are part of God’s plan.

Three things you can do to help you understand your purpose and achieve it are:

  1. Define what you are passionate about. Generally, we are driven internally by a purpose given to us by God. What is that thing that wakes you up at night or the first thing you think about when you get up? Many times, our purpose is connected to what we are most passionate about.
  2. Define what you are good at. There is a difference between a hobby and a purpose. Many of us love to do things but may not be the best at them! When you sit down and really look at your talents and abilities, that’s where our life purpose is most often seen.
  3. What trusted feedback do you regularly receive from others? When we surround ourselves with the right kind of people, they often give us solid feedback on who we really are. I am not saying to listen to everyone, but who do you have in your life that has experience and wisdom. I (Joe) have experienced that when I spend time with the right people, they actually see my gifts in ways, that I did not see in myself. I would not be where I am today without this encouraging feedback in my life.

It is important to have a firm grasp on both our general and specific purpose as we go through life and its many storms. These can act like an internal GPS to keep us going through the ups and downs that we all face. You were crafted for purpose. Identify it and put it to work for God’s glory!

Think About It:

  • Divine purpose has tools. What gifts, talent and dreams do you have?
  • Divine purpose is very valuable. It needs to be protected at all times. Have you had any struggles with who people said you were or weren’t?
  • Have you ever experienced lost hope, lack of purpose, or loss of earthly direction?

Legacy Lifter:

When you turn your life toward God’s purpose, your dreams, goals, and desires come alive. You begin to see how important you are in God’s eyes.

I'm a perfectionist, I work the details to the dots in the i's And I believe if we fall and keep breathing we can always arise. Sometimes I wonder, 'if I'd become everything I wanted as a girl, Would I be better than this or caught up in a different whirl?' I close my eyes and hear the voices of those who look up to me, The hopeful eyes in their pictures.....I think I can see what they see, I want to wake up one morning and see the people I care about happy. I'm a perfectionist, I work the details to the dots in the i's And I believe if we fall and keep breathing we can always arise. I pretend I'm not hurt even when I am, 'Cause when fighting ain't an option,the least we can do is keep calm. There're times when I feel terribly overwhelmed, But bless everything through which I've helmed, There's been God, there's been you, to pull me through. I oft'n worry that the things I so believe in may not be true, And you can trust me to cry at the idea of failing in what I set out to do. I'm a perfectionist, I work the details to the dots in the i's And I believe if we fall and keep breathing we can always arise. I understand that it's hard to please everyone, But if I could, there's nothing I'd want more than to see a smile on the face of every man. I believe and so say everyone deserves a second chance, I judge not...at least never at first glance. I dream of the day when I can look at my life and say 'this is where I wanted to be. I have, I do, I always will try the best in everyone to see, And I hope at the end of my life, I will not have left a trail of broken hearts behind me.
