It is not about YOU.
This campaign of searching for YOUR purpose, is not about you.(Wait a second,don’t freak out.)
Why? BECAUSE IT IS ABOUT GOD!
In the book, there was an example that goes like this: If you have seen a new invention, you can’t tell its use right away. You need the INVENTOR and the OWNER’S MANUAL for you to be able to know. Same to us, if we want to know our origin, identity, purpose, significance, and our destiny, we have to look for the ONE who created us. And who would that be? GOD! He created you, so He’s the only one who knows what is your purpose, who you really are!
We have this tendency to have ourselves as the STARTING POINT in finding our life’s purpose. Rick Warren stated the usual faults we do: We find where we are good at, what are our greatest dreams and ambitions, our passions and the likes. But our PURPOSE is more than that. It is more than anything. We have the power to choose in many aspects of our lives, but our PURPOSE is already there, like a default program in a PC. If you have succeeded in your own goals, or you are considered successful by worldly standards, and still not able to fulfill your PURPOSE, then you are not successful after all. You haven’t lived life to the fullest!
This search will be a long journey, but as Warren said, God didn’t left us to guess or what. Our INVENTOR has handed us our own MANUAL which is the Bible. There, the five purpose of our lives are clearly communicated. You know what guys and gals, I’ve got this advice that if you want to have a better life, start memorizing verses from the Bible. In the end of every chapter, I’ll mention a verse that you have to memorize and ponder upon. You may as well write it on an index card, and bring it to wherever you go for you to remember it. (This is what I do.)
Please do remember that,
Everthing is created by Him for Him.
Everything is formed through His purpose and for His purpose.
And when I say everything, I mean ALL!
The world right at this very moment is already tragic. You have to be brave to sought after Lord’s will. “Don’t sway with the world. Be different and change your mind for you to see Yahweh’s will. What is good, is pleasing to Him and is absolute,” as the Bible says. Don’t use Him for your desires, because it is FORCING TO CHANGE THE NATURE. We must be used by Him, not the other way around.
Bros and Sis, find your PURPOSE, because IT IS YOUR ESSENCE. And think about this, isn’t it right to work hard to know your purpose and accomplish it, also as a way to thank Him for having us this GIFT OF LIFE. I know life is full of fucking shits, and sometimes you may think of ending it all, but we all know that, all in all…
Life is astoundingly magnificent.
Hope you folks learned some from this blog post. If you have concerns, feel free to comment and I’ll answer you. By the way, these are to be noted:
- POINT TO BE CONTEMPLATED UPON: This is not about ME.
- VERSE TO BE REMEMBERED:
Colossians 1:16 (NIV)
(For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities;all things have been created through him and for him.)
- QUESTION TO THINK UPON: Despite the deceitful advertisements all around me, how can I remind myself that life is all about living for God, and not for me?
