Each one of us was born to look for "that place" where we can fit in. From childhood to adulthood, and even until today, regardless of what the situation is, we are all looking for that "niche".
A child in a playground looks around to see who he can approach to play with. A student in school sizes up other people who will accept him. This same student is led to a path for College education to find that specific course that would lead to his career goals. A person looking for a job searches for work that he will be able to do with the skills and experience that he has. A businessman creates a business plan that identifies his target niche. A politician comes up with a political platform that will be well-received by the people he is looking for support. A man looks for his help-meet, the woman who is designed for him. It is all about finding that fit, isn't it?
Finding that fit is ingrained in us because we were created for a purpose. None of us is created for the heck of being here on this planet. Each one was created by God to fulfill a specific purpose that connects with His entire purpose for humanity, not only in this lifetime but in the life to come.
Knowing your purpose goes beyond finding your fit. However, finding your fit is the path that leads to the discovery of your purpose. Where you fit in is related to the purpose that God has for you.
Discovering your purpose is a journey that does not happen overnight. It begins by knowing who created you and what His plan is for His entire creation. Knowing who created you will reveal you to yourself the way He created you. It will connect the dots of your past to your present and to the future that He has in store for you -- dots that include your past experiences, both the good and bad. It will bring healing and closure, and finally release you to your God-given purpose, giving you the peace and security that you have always longed for.
Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained
This vision is your purpose. Without knowing what it is, there is lack of restraint, meaning lack of control or direction. This is the reason why some people get depressed, turn to drugs and alcohol, and develop unhealthy habits. It is because of the lack of "restraint" brought about by not knowing their purpose.
Your purpose is bigger than being a wife, husband, mother, father, businessman, politician, philanthropist, pastor, teacher, architect, etc. These are simply avenues to fulfill your purpose.
Once you discover your purpose, you will see yourself in a totally different light. You will have that AHA moment. You will have the motivation and passion to do things that you've always wanted to do but never knew how to start or put into practice. You will experience restoration in all areas of your life. You will have a clearer path to follow. The clouds in your mind will dissipate and you will begin to see very clearly.
Discovering your purpose begins by saying, "I want to discover my purpose. I am ready."
And if you are ready, then I am ready to help lead you to the DISCOVERY OF YOUR PURPOSE.
