The Purpose of life.

The Purpose of Life is to discover your gift

(WoW!  This show is old but it’s  a POWERFUL reminder that GOD is still in control.  God has shown/showing me a lot since the airing of this show).   Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

The Purpose of Life is to discover your gift.  The work of life is to develop it.  The meaning of life is to give your gift away.

Ever wondered why you were put on this earth?  So have I.  I always believed that there are no coincidences in life. That we all serve a purpose… and, we do!

The tricky part is trying to figure out what that purpose is. But if you stand still, pray about it and just listen – you may be able to uncover “it”!

This won’t be easy, as it comes to us at different times in our lives. Just keep in mind that fear, doubt, and confusion will always keep you from it!

I figured out that my purpose is to empower young women. To instill confidence in young women who like me have been bullied, been put down, and abused once or twice in our lives.

I truly believe we can speak life to each other! We can build one another and break bad habits, unlearn the things our society has taught us.

I challenge you all to do 1 act of kindness(or more) a day with no expectation. See how it makes you feel, does it put a smile on your face? Do you notice any changes within? How do you think it made the other person feel?

I think we can all gain from an act of kindness to one another.

I leave you with this;

“When faith replaces doubt when selfless service eliminates selfish striving, the power of God brings to pass His purposes.”
