Created For a Purpose

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

This week’s blog is pretty short and sweet, but perhaps one of the most important.

You were created for a purpose. You are God’s unique design, that He created to do things only YOU can do.

It may not feel that way all the time, but there are things that only you can do. You have something different, something that for whatever reason, whatever life has thrown at you, where you are from, or what particular skills you have, it makes you special.

And that specialness, that uniqueness, that particular thing you do is why you here on this earth.

You know what it is. You know the thing that you do, that you can’t help doing. That talent, that creative or natural skill. It is just what you do.

It’s not chance. It’s not happenstance, or coincidence.

You were put here for a reason. So whether you believe in God, the universe, or the freakin’ Force, it’s time to quit denying it, putting it off, or not making the time.

“I believe that God has put gifts and talents and ability on the inside of every one of us. When you develop that and you believe in yourself and you believe that you're a person of influence and a person of purpose, I believe you can rise up out of any situation.” - Joel Osteen
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)

Have a great week!

  1. It was all good until you quoted Joel Osteen.
