There are many avenues to explore when it comes to discovering your God-given life purpose. Unfortunately, the process of finding it isn’t easy and nobody else can find it for you. Since your life purpose is unique from anyone else’s, it’s a mission that you – and only you – can complete. But don’t fret there are ways to make the journey a little easier.
Here are three ways you can discover your God-given life purpose:
Write about how you feel
Try journaling with a pen and paper, or grab your laptop and just start writing. Write about how you truly feel and what you want out of life. Remember that no one is going to read this other than you, so don’t be afraid to express your thoughts. Go back and reread your entries every so often. Many times this process can bring you new realizations that you didn’t think of when you were writing it in the first place.
Pursue your passions
If you’re passionate about a certain subject, maybe you can make a career or hobby out of it so that you can engage in activities that are personally meaningful to you. This way, each day of your life will feel like it matters and you will have a life purpose.
What better way to find your God-given purpose than to talk with the Father. Ask that he reveals His purpose in your life. Humble yourself and open yourself to hear his voice.
Another way to help you discover your God-given purpose is to explore your Spiritual Gifts. What gifts have God blessed you with? You can do this by reading the sections of the bible talking about Spiritual books, one of the many books out there about spiritual gifts and/or taking spiritual gift assessments. For those of you interested in taking action today. Here is a link to a free online Spiritual Gifts Test. You can also sign up for my Unwrapping Your Spiritual Gifts email series.
Remember in your quest for purpose, concentrate on enjoying the journey itself. Sometimes when you stop stressing about your life’s purpose, it falls into your lap! By using these strategies on your journey you’ll realize that you’ve found the one feature of your life that makes everything worthwhile.
“Now I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, while the men who were with me did not see the vision; nevertheless, a great dread fell on them, and they ran away to hide themselves.” – Daniel 10:7
Starting and running a business isn’t easy in a world stressing six-figure incomes, being a person of influence, and implementing “formulas” for success. Often when we work through the “vision of the world” we end up feeling like a failure because we only made $100 last month, have one or two faithful customer and the formula that worked for others (i.e. everybody else) isn’t working for us. By trying to be like everyone else we are missing the greatest gift…serving God’s purpose for our life!
Before reading on, take a moment to think back to the moment the vision for your business was revealed to you..How did you feel? Did think success would happen overnight? Was it about the money? Was it from God?
If you already have a business…What changes have you made since day 1? What keeps you going each day when things get tough? Is it of God?
Your answers to these questions can offer some great insight into where you have been. Now let’s look ahead. As you take your next step forward, the most important thing you can do is to shake up your journey and start seeing your business from God’s perspective so your vision aligns with His vision.
You need to realize your business is to run based on God’s will not yours. In order to receive the riches you won’t have room enough to receive you need to work under His law not mans. Also, acknowledge when you are using God as the reason for moving forward with your desires not His….
So with each step forward be sure to:
Have faith and continually pray
Persevere and don’t let defeat or fear derail you
Be patient for it won’t happen in your time but in God’s Time
Be Disciplined and do what needs to be done to make things happen
Today, I am continuing to work on the vision God has given me. I am excited about what has been placed in me. I have made my plan for K. Gaskins Consulting and I am working the plan to make sure my place in God’s Story is told.
