The mentality with which I grew up with was- study a ‘they pay them well ooo’ course, graduate, get a good job, get married and have kids. I use to tell myself, “I just want to have a comfortable life, a loving husband, four kids… a set of twins in between”….that has not changed much though. I still want all of that, what has changed is that I want to do more with my life. I want to BECOME MORE. This brings me to the term ‘PURPOSE’…
I went for a talk sometimes ago, the speaker talked alot about purpose that I was so ignited/fired up in my spirit to determine my purpose that same day. As soon as I got to my room…I hit google hard, opening post upon post on purpose, trying to understand and grasp that term. As I filpped through the – 5,7, 13 ways to find one’s purpose…I beacame more and more confused and eventually got exhausted and resolved to live life whichever way it came.🤣🤣🤣🤣 What a decision!
Really…what is purpose?
Purpose- the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.
Even though I knew the above, I still did not know why I existed or what I was supposed to do. I then concluded that maybe purpose was for some set of people…you know maybe God handpicked some people for purpose.😆😆🤣🤣…Whichever category you happen to fall into..I want to tell you today that everybody…I mean everybody has a purpose for which they were created. No one is a biological accident and there is much more to our lives than going go school, graduating, getting a good job, getting married and having kids..(great sturvs!)…but THERE IS MORE.
With the increase in societal standards, social media identity, advent of slay queens and slay kings(no offence meant)…it is very easy to lose sight of who we are and where we are going. Hence, the need for this post. My greatest desire is to help ladies discover who they are, the uniqueness of their gifts, to help them live up to their full potential and the freedom that comes from living a radical life for christ via my blog posts and my life. I hope to help one lady discover how great she really is and how much God given talents she has and fully maximize them.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.John 14:6
The staring point is God…Quit religion and pursue a genuine relationship with God. Talk to him, listen to him, desire to know him. Because you can only find your purpose/ become more in him. No amount of google search can reveal that to you.
WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT YOU- “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5 vs 14-16.
The world is waiting for YOU.
You are an answer to someone’s prayer. Imagine a mulititide of hungry kids crying and tugging at your shirt all at once…crying and beckoning on you to come save them or a large crowd of people standing, shouting your name and clapping for you to come take an award and you did not show up…this scenarios set me in motion every single time…Yes! The world needs your gifts, talents, skills, potentials and all of you.
