During my seeking & praying, I began to see how “What is my purpose?” has become a desire for so many. I decided to look up “purpose” in the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary & the following definitions were provided: “1) the reason why something is done or used : the aim or intention of something, 2) the feeling of being determined to do or achieve something, and 3) the aim or goal of a person : what a person is trying to do, become, etc.”
For each of these definitions, I added “in God” at the end. For instance, “The aim or goal of a person; what a person is trying to do or become in God.” It does bring a new awareness to purpose & what we are seeking, but all of these things can be done in God. Without His guidance & direction, our purpose wouldn’t have his stamp of approval.
I, too, am one who’s looking for & praying for what God has called me to do; a lot of times, He’s told us what to do & we have to “just do it”, by stepping out on faith. For many, this faith can even be mustard seed faith---it’s the only faith that’s carried many through most of the toughest days. Thanking God for the power of mustard seed faith.
Continue to pray & seek God for your purpose in life. He’ll reveal this to all of us; we must be ready to believe, receive, & act on this IN GOD.
Until next time.
