This can be a loaded question that can come up pretty often in some circles.Which if you do not have an answer to you may feel insignificant or that you have missed something. Do not worry you do not need to know your purpose down to the last detail. I do recommend you take some time to examine your passions, hobbies and what stirs your heart and think about your purpose or what you would like to accomplish. Your life is valuable and you have a lot of potential. Whether you are old and young it is not too late to leave a legacy that can live on for thousands of years. seemingly little things have a BIG impact
Whether you think you know your purpose or not, prayerfully reflect on a couple of things for me.
What are you good at?
What hobbies do you enjoy?
What about those hobbies do you like?
Make a list of things you would enjoy doing for a living if you could live comfortably.
Make a list of things you would enjoy doing if time was not an issue.
Do any commercials, movies or books make you cry or stir something up?
What is it that makes you emotional? Really take your time here.
Is there anything you feel would like to do in response? (Google s your friend here! You can look up organizations, facebook groups get creative!)
What do you feel unqualified, not good enough to do, but you might enjoy?
Is there something you feel like keeps coming up, you cannot seem to get it out of your head or get outside reminders?
What would your dream world look like? Think about more than just your life.
These questions are to get you to examine yourself, clarifying what is important and enjoyable for you. Your purpose will have a mixture of things you are good at, enjoy, feel like you cannot just leave things the way it is and something that is big a scary that you cannot do without God. There will be an intercection of a bunch of things that may not make any sense, do not worry if you cannot "figure it out." God has it figured out be open to something unique and different that you feel unqualified to do, God will do the heavy lifting.
Be comforted that you have a purpose, it is just the way you were designed. It will reveal itself as you take the steps.
Praying that you know your worth and value!
