The one question that everyone is asking, and no one knows the answer to. How do you find your purpose? Living, without treading the path you were destined to follow, is a life that most people want not to become their reality, yet becomes ingrained of their daily routines and existence. How do you discover this path?Your purpose and passion, may possibly change several times throughout your life .Everyone has a purpose, but until they discover their purpose, life can seem like it is on repeat. Nothing seems to change, the days blur together from focusing on too many things at once, or nothing at all.
Purpose is something we talk about often in our houses, around our dinner table, in hospital and clinic waiting rooms, on long car rides or even in schools . It’s a topic poured out in searing tears and nights of protracted pain as many teens in their early 20s wrestle not only with finding their purpose but also with God about their purpose in life. It’s a concept fueling angry outbursts as a single straw shifts the balance and a fragile house of cards comes tumbling down. I know in the marrow of my bones that each of us, every single one of the 7.6 billion people on this spinning blue planet, was created with purpose.
As human beings we indulge ourselves in different vacations in life to seek meaning. Some of us see our purpose in the family and its responsibilities, some in their professions while some wander in the forests to seek answers. Purpose drives us on the path of determination and grit. Whether its to help those in need or to make money, there is no one out there who doesn’t have a purpose. Different people have a different take on the true purpose of life. But does it mean we will have to wander directionless in dark woods or cross seven seas to find our true calling in life, or we can find purpose here in our daily mundane chores? In my opinion, there is so much that we can do in our day to day lives which can greatly make a difference.
God speaks of it in His Word, reminding us He has a plan and a purpose for each of us, hope and a future. He encourages us to walk with Him, to love others, to do good to all, to do everything for His glory, to be still and know that He is God, and He reminds us that He will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.Having a purpose means that at some level you believe it is your destiny to do something. You are willing to make a plan, to learn the rules and to develop certain skills.If you do not wholeheartedly believe in your purpose or if you are not passionate about what it is you are doing,then you’ll be getting yourself out of the right track.There’s got to be some incentive for you to embrace the extreme work that is required in order to achieve anything of importance, because, whether you like it or not, it also takes a lot more work to achieve something than you consider before attempting it.
Finding our purpose is directly related to finding our passions and acting on them.That feeling that something is missing goes away when we lead a passion-filled life. The need to seek our purpose comes from a lack of passion. When we don’t feel connected to our lives, we lack purpose and passion and to fix this emptiness,we simply need to add more passion. It’s important to have a purpose. I have seen lives filled with loneliness and despair when no specific purpose has been embraced. On the other hand, I have seen drastic improvements in psychological well-being when people have identified a meaningful purpose.
Purpose in life is the intended result of our focus, determination, and intention. It is the entire point of our existence.A purpose sets the entire context for our lives. Without a clearly defined purpose, we are just a haphazard combination of goals and non-goals and actions and non-actions meandering through space and time. A purpose is a master plan for our life. Knowing our purpose helps us define our goals. It helps us avoid getting lost in the minutia of daily life by keeping our eyes on the target. It can make life much more enjoyable and effortless. Purpose is not something that others choose for us; rather, it is something we must choose for ourselves. It emerges from an exploration of what we value most. When we are defining our purpose in life, it is important to not worry about how we will go about achieving it. When we identify and commit to our intentions, the opportunities and methods for achieving our purpose will begin to show up.
We don’t need to waste any more time stumbling through life. We should take time to identify our purpose and strive to let our purpose express itself each day in our work, our play, and our relationships. Living life on purpose will translate to better well-being for us,our family, and our world.Life purpose is much bigger than something we need to accomplish or a job that we have. It’s the entire meaning of our being. It’s the reason we eat, sleep, and breathe. It’s why we’re here and how we uniquely see the world.
Purpose is whatsoever your hands findeth to do,stop waiting on finding purpose.purpose was not lost in the first place.It has always been with you,be it loving,be it helping,be it serving,be it caring,do all with the whole of your heart because that right there is fulfilling purpose.God is not interested in waste,so in this you can be sure,whatsoever talents,gifts,grace,enablement,passion,desire that He gave they are lined up with your purpose.Lead a purposeful life,and follow your passion because that’s the purpose of life.
