I was on phone with a friend a while back and i was telling him of how i can’t leave people knowing there’s something wrong, i always want to help you know just be there for them atleast and he ofcourse laughed （guys always do this！can i get a witness？）then said something about purposeful living that i really can’t remember at the moment but yeah this really was me just giving you the gist of the phonecall, lol please stay with me, don’t vex now, not yet lol
Today i want to answer questions thats constantly on people’s minds and thats, whats my purpose？how do i find purpose？and the likes.
Purpose…..oh dear purpose is the very thing that causes people to be aware, you just feel a sense of knowing and you question things you’ve done before you got to that point. Well to me, and with the help of the holy spirit i have discovered that:
- purpose isn’t a vocation or a destination
- purpose is your life and what you do with it
- purpose isn’t a constant variable
- purpose is continuous, it spans across the whole existence of a being
Sweetheart there’s nothing like ”oh my purpose is making smoothies” or something silly as that. You can be the best at something but its not the totality of your existence, it is only a pointer to something greater.
Don’t sell yourself short by thinking ”i’m only good for A so i leave DEF for someone else to do. You are to grow into full potential. Turn your bible real quick to Matthew 25:14-30, its quite a read but the story is a very interesting one and it would help you understand better.
I have a few pointers to purpose, （i can see your face beam on reading this, yes you）so how do i know i’m living a purposeful life？this is how,
- purpose glorifies God
- purpose is enjoyed by the fulfillee, make no mistake purpose is enjoyable
- purpose changes lives. its no longer about you but about people and situations you’ve positively affected
So when you can check these three off the list you’re good to go bu ultimately, purpose is found in God！I beg you today to submit your life to Jesus, He leads the way to God and He’s just amazing to have.
As i go off to other things, i suggest you get a book written by my sister, Jesunifemi Ogundipe titled when purpose lives, amazing book trust me(you can always send a mail or leave a comment and i’ll help you get the book if interested) I love you always and thank you for reading this, i really believe that you are being blessed by it.
