I have been thinking a lot about purpose. I, like many of you, have struggled with the question, a question that ultimately becomes the center of our existence. “What is my life purpose?” Granted some people know who they are and what there purpose is early on in life and some of us struggle. The thing is I was living in my purpose and was clueless to my gift. For example ,whenever I shared my perspective on purpose, self-awareness, love, growth, it brought me joy. I felt like I was contributing to society. The thing I learned is whenever I was in services to others it gave me a sense of purpose. Once I figured out being of service gave me high vibes I knew I was in my purpose. Take a look a look at your life what makes you smile, laugh and bring you joy. I guarantee those things will lead you into your purpose.
What holds you back? The thing that holds you back are the things that hold most people back, SELF-SABOTAGE. We tend to focus more on the things not moving in the direction we prefer. Negative self-talk and thinking prevents us from stepping out in faith and pursuing the things God puts in our hearts. I noticed that when I am not distracted and stressed, I tend to focus more. My thoughts are clear and I am more productive. I have learn to relay on the word of God when moving in my purpose. I now completely understand this scripture.
(Romans 12:2) “Do not conform to the pattern of this world , but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what god will is- his good, pleasing and perfect will”. It reminds me to stay discipline and and focused.
This fall is all about purpose, ridding yourself of all the things that weigh you down. Things, people and the way we speak to ourselves. Lets focus more on the good things. Let’s practice loving ourselves speaking positively to ourselves and others.
(Exodus 9:16) “But I have raised you up for this very purpose that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all earth”.
