I believe a life without a purpose is no life at all… Still I’ve always struggled to find (to know) why I am, what is the purpose of my life. What am I meant to achieve (to do) with this life that has been given to me. With my logical and analytical self I tried to find it through discovering my strengths, talents, and the likes – though all these can be a guide and can help find success, they can’t give me, explain or tell me the essence of my individuality (purpose). Success is great but that’s not what I was searching for.
During this discovery the one thing I have come to find is – who best to know why I am, than the one who created me. When I buy a product I usually read the manual to know how to use the product and (or) what the product is all about. Now!! a manufacturer does not need this manual because he wrote it. So imagine not only having an access to the manual but the manufacturer. And at that moment Everything clicked. The one thing I had struggled so hard to find was just right there at my disposal. I not only had the manual (The Bible), but also access to the manufacture (God) who is willing to give me any information I need.
***Personal thoughts – It baffles me when people believe there is no creator (God), wouldn’t that In a way mean our life’s have no purpose (no meaning, and we are living a worthless life) ****
I came across the scriptures which says “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10 ESV and “Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.” Proverbs 19:21 ESV
Through all this confusing moments and scattered thoughts I have now come to know that Only through God can I truly find the Essence of my individuality – for he is my one true manufacture, and he knows his product well.
THE ESSENCE OF MY INDIVIDUALITY- IS IN GOD.
