You are not a hamster on a wheel – spinning faster everyday while trapped and on display for the world to watch you. Yet sometimes it might feel that the days, places and people meld into a blur and that the treadmill of life is on its steepest incline – and you wonder why you are here, in this time and in this place. Questioning our purpose – the heart of why we are here – is central to human nature. Our purpose – when we know in our core what it is – anchors us, it is our true north.
For those of us who have relationship with the Lord, we have an opportunity to learn and grow in the unique purpose he has for us. We also know God’s Holy Spirit helps us grow and fulfil that purpose when we walk with him.Living as our authentic selves gives us a life of meaning. Purpose grows from a place of caring for others, seeing a need, and knowing we can meet it.
For some of us that meaning is in that might be raising a happy and connected family, for others it could be developing a skill, product, business, or service, and for others it could be about driving positive change in the world around us.
… The purpose of a life is a life of purpose
