Purpose

Purpose. Is finding your purpose hard to find? I think we like to believe it is. We like to believe that God hasn’t shown us our “job” yet. But is that really true?

What if you do know your purpose? Do you feel better? Are you as lost?

It’s my belief that our purpose stares us in the face. Yes, it seems hard because usually when we find it, it’s almost like we run from it. Well, to say “we” is unfair, so I will focus on me.

I prayed to know my calling. What God showed me was that I should be involved with the youth. And now that I’m a little older, now that I’ve had a few jobs doing that, I have to honestly say I’m wondering is that still my calling? I’ve begun to wonder was that my calling for that time or is it for my lifetime?

We all have a purpose. If you’re alive, you have a purpose. I guess I’m just wondering how do I allow myself to get so sidetracked when I know all of this? How do I have one bad experience and question them all? How can I be so wrong?

Knowing that God has given me a purpose makes everything automatically worthwhile. No matter how bad the job, experience, pay, etc. So the real question is, why have I not treated it like it was enough?

  1. During a time that I had an hour long commute to and from work I prayed one day asking God what He wanted me to do to serve him more. His answer to me as clear as though He was speaking aloud was, “Love my people.” I knew that God did not just mean believers, but, all of the people He has given the breath of live that I would encounter in my life. Sometimes it is difficult, but, I have to look at others keeping in mind how God views them. So many are lost and it is my job to show God’s love to them through loving them unconditionally myself.

  2. Thank you for sharing. This is the first time I’ve had a job that wasn’t at least a 35 minute commute. I will say this, the commute time I’ve had always made my relationship with God stronger because I was just talk to Him the majority of my drives.
