The Beauty of our lives is in our purpose: Discovering your purpose and living it
The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away – Pablo Picasso
An invention is created by the inventor to achieve an already thought out purpose. If that invention acts outside that purpose, it is said to be MEANINGLESS. The same is true of our lives. Our purpose gives our lives meaning. Our purpose is what determines a life that is wasted and a life that is invested. Our life purpose is what tells if we are existing or living. Our life purpose adorns our life.
The need always come before the solution. For there to be a solution, there has to be a need. The act of being and living as a solution to a need is what I refer to as living purpose. We are all solutions to different needs and this is why nobody is a mistake regardless of whatever circumstance that may have surrounded their birth. In Jeremiah 1:5, God told Jeremiah that he (God) knew him (Jeremiah) even before he became a fetus in his mother’s womb. Wow!!! That is beyond amazing. That means that even copulation, we have already been set apart to meet a need.
I strongly believe that the beauty of our life is tied to our purpose. Our relevance, importance and contentment is in our purpose. A spoilt bulb is tossed away and said to be useless because it is no longer fulfilling the purpose for which it was created. Our usefulness is in our purpose. Purpose spices up our lives. It gives us a sense of contribution, importance and meaning. It makes every day worth looking forward to and ever second worth maximizing, purpose energizes and electrifies the person that has discovered it and is living it. True success is connected to living purpose
There are so many rich, powerful and influential people that are miserable on the inside. Their public identity is completely different from their private reality. This is why you see so many popular figures take their lives even at the peak of their success.
How do I discover purpose?
- Go back to your creator in prayer and word study to discover that need he intends for you to be a solution to. It is a need that you are uniquely and distinctively fashioned to meet. That is why you shouldn’t be afraid of someone else stealing your spot.
- Take out at least 15 minutes daily to just meditate. There is tremendous power in meditation
- Write don you passions and likes. I have realized that we are created and designed to suit our purpose. There is no talent, gifting, passion and strong heart desire of ours that is not linked to our purpose, we have all we need to be able to live our purpose. What you don’t have is simply what you don’t need. Quit comparing yourself with others. The refrigerator was fashioned in a manner to enable it effectively fulfill its purpose. In the same way, we were all created to perfectly suit our purpose.
We wish you the best of luck as you discover and live your purpose. Don’t forget to share,
