Purpose Simplifies Destiny…


Have you felt hopeless? Hold on! Wonderful changes are going to happen in your life as you begin to live it on purpose. Remember God says “I know what I am planning for you…” I have good plans for you, not plans to hurt you. I will give you hope and a good future. “.

I don’t think I will ever stop writing about one’s purpose in life and I love the quote of Steve Job” Things don’t have to change the world to be important”. We need to realize how important we are for us to be able to to change the world and make it a better place.”You are of no relevance to the world, if you don’t believe you are relevant”.

Knowing how important we are is simply identifying our purpose in life. Knowing what we do and what we don’t do. Our purpose becomes the standard we use to evaluate which activities are essential and which aren’t.

Without a clear purpose you have no foundation on which you base decisions, allocate your time, and use your resources. You are liable to make choices based on circumstances, pressure, and your mood at that moment. People who don’t know their purpose try to do too much and this often cause stress, fatigue, and conflict.

It is impossible to do everything people want you to do. You have just enough time to do God’s will and not the will of the world. If you can’t get it all done, it simply means you are trying to do more than God intended for you to do. The truth is, living a life of purpose leads to a simpler lifestyle and a saner schedule. Sadly, many people are like gyroscope spinning around at a frantic pace but never going anywhere.

Without a clear purpose, you will keep changing directions, jobs, relationships, churches, or other externals, hoping each change will settle the confusion or better yet fill the emptiness in your heart. You probably think “Maybe this time it will be different”, but it doesn’t change or solve your real problem(s) .

When light is focused even more as a laser beam, it can cut through steel“. There is nothing quite as potential as a focused life, one lived on purpose. Get focused and find your purpose today!

  1. You’re right we need a clear purpose. I know focusing on ourselves will never reveal it. We were made by God so that might be a good starting point to find our purpose.
    Thanks for keeping it simple.

  3. You wrote so much about living the life with purpose, adhering to it and then rest will follow. I completely agree with you, but can you please explain what to do if you are unsuccessful in finding the purpose of life. Juts in my case, I am ready to do anything to find my purpose. My present job for sure is not what I want to do my while life, but what else is my purpose. How to find it and implement it?

    1. Thank you Vishal4u for reaching out.

      I am grateful to the hundreds of writers and teachers both classical and contemporary, who have shaped my life and helped me learned these truths I’m about to share with you. There are many angles to answer your questions from but I will choose the biblical angle or perspective.

      Dear Vishal4u, to answer your questions as to what to do when you are unsuccessful in finding your purpose in life, and how to implement it when you find it ; First, you must understand that it all begins with God. He’s the only one that can connect all the pieces of your life to fit together. Having this perspective will reduce your stress, simplify your decisions, increase your satisfaction and most importantly prepare you for eternity.

      The best way to discover your purpose in life and be successful in it, is to allow God to speak and direct you himself. The Bible says in Romans 12:2″ Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what He wants you to do”. This can only happen when you have a personal relationship with him. God still speaks and directs, the only problem is that we’ve chosen consciously and unsciously to hear our own voice and the voice of the crowd instead of his.

      Dear Vishal4u, all hope is not lost. You can still discover your purpose in life and do great things but I need you to understand that the purpose of your life is far greater than your own personal fulfillment, success, peace of mind, or even happiness. It is far greater than your family, your career or even your wildest dreams and ambition. If you truly want to know why you were placed here on earth, then my dear you must begin with God. Talk to Him. You were born by his purpose and for his purpose. He will surely show you your abilities and also make provisions for the accomplishments of every visions as well.

      Bertrand Russell a British philosopher and self-ascribed agnostic once said “Unless you assume a God, the question of life’s purpose is meaningless”. The Bible also says “It is God who directs the lives of his creatures ; every one’s life is in his power.

      Rick Warren a renowned writer wrote in his book” A purpose driven life”, “I once got lost in the mountains. When I stopped to ask for directions to the campsite I was told” you can’t get there from here”. You must start from the other side of the mountain “. In the same way, you can not arrive at your life’s purpose by starting with a focus on yourself.

      The job you have now may not be what you want to do but you got it for a reason” there are no accidents my dear” do it with all diligence and be faithful. But to find the next right path, you’ve got to try and seek the face of God and listen when he speaks. The answer you will get or the path he may show you may not be convenient or good to you but be rest assured that it will be good for you.

      I hope I answered your questions. I wish you all the best, happiness and success in the world as you begin to discover your purpose in life.
      Thank you for stopping by have a great day.

      1. Thanks a lot for understanding me and for all the effort you took in replying me. Believe me this means a lot to me. I now do know one thing, that I need to connect myself with God. Yes I accept today, that I am drifted far away from him in last 10 years. Even I have realized it, but was not acknowledged by me.
        Once again I thank you and will remember what you said and will follow it too. I need to build up my faith.
        I will for sure. ❤️❤️❤️😊😊😊

  4. Great read and I agree with the above comment I was wondering if you could do a follow up with ways to go about finding your true purpose, maybe how to know you’re on the right track etc. I’ve watched a few YouTube videos and read other blogs but I’d love to read your input on it if you get the chance✨

    1. Thank you Lee for reaching out. I shared this response to a wonderful friend of mine and I will be sharing it with you too.

      Dear Lee, all hope is not lost. To know you are on the right track; First, you have to follow Gods direction and dutifully do what he reveals. Obedience is better than sacrifice. This also means you will stop doing things your own way. Keep a firm grasp on his teachings and your character.
      Focusing on yourself will never reveal your lives purpose.
      Contrary to what I have heard many people say, to what many popular books, movies and seminars tell us , we won’t discover our life’s meaning by looking within ourselves. You’ve probably tried that!
      Without God life makes no sense but with him, you’ve got all the success you will ever need.

      Bertrand Russell, once said “Unless you assume a God, the question of life’s purpose is meaningless”. The Bible also says “It is God who directs the lives of his creatures ; every one’s life is in his power.
