For we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how people say that God has some purpose for every life that he created and he will show what that purpose in his time. I don’t feel like God has shown me what his purpose is for my life yet, if he has maybe I just wasn’t listening at the time, if so hopefully he will give me a second chance and show me again, but I just don’t feel like he has revealed it to me yet. I know that in part my life is meant to serve the roles of daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, aunt and friend and I pray that I am doing a decent job in those capacities but I always feel like something is missing, like I am meant to do more with my life. I want to have an effective voice in this world, a voice that has a positive impact on others, even if it is just through my writing. I want to feel like I’ve helped others and my living isn’t in vain. I want my life to be a blessing to others. For anyone reading this who knows me personally, no I am not sad I am however always questioning my place in this world and I figured I’d write about my thoughts on purpose and share them, that’s all.
I am always looking at people who seem to have it all together and are doing something with their lives, seemingly walking in God’s purpose for their lives and I wonder how does one know when they have found their purpose. Is it something that you can just feel? Does God send you a sign at a certain age or point in life letting you know what his purpose is for your life or do you have some sort of an epiphany suddenly figuring out what you are supposed to be doing with your life? I also wonder if once one has figured out the things that they’re supposed to be doing with their life, does finding purpose equal finding complete happiness and fulfillment in life or do you still want more out of life? Does God’s purposes for our lives change as we age? I guess I just have to keep living to get the answers to all my questions about life and purpose.💜
