Living A Fulfilled Life … A Life of Purpose
“The way to achieve fulfilment in your life is to devote yourself to loving God, loving people around you, and be committed to creating something that affects lives positively. All these will in turn give your life purpose and meaning.”
What is your purpose? What were you and you alone put on this earth to do?
We all have one, you know—a purpose. We’re all here with a call and a work to do. Allow me to prove it to you with these wise words: “If you are breathing, you are still alive. If you are alive, then you are still here, physically, on this planet. If you are still here, then you have not completed what you were put on earth to do. If you have not completed what you were put on earth to do…that means your very purpose has not yet been fulfilled. If your purpose has not yet been fulfilled, then the most important part of your life has not yet been lived…”. No matter how old or young or tired or sad or busy or lazy or whatever you believe yourself to be, you have a work to do, my friend. We all do.
Have You Felt The Essence of What You Were Created to Be?
As one author writes, “True success is to discern the essence of what we’re created to be and to follow it relentlessly”.
Have you felt the essence of what you were created to be? If not, what is standing in your way? Is it lack of desire? Is it failing to get “still” enough to hear the whispers? Is it allowing the distractions of a busy life to keep you in a routine until your life is living you? Whatever is holding you back, hear this:
“You will never feel at home until you discover, uncover, or recover your divine purpose and make it the focus of your life”.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I; to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates other
Let Your Light Shine
The Bible teaches, “Let your light so shine before men,” and warns us not to “light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick,” so it “giveth light unto all that are in the house”. We are all candles and we have brilliant light to share. Only we can hold ourselves back from giving light to all.
Don’t hold yourself back. Embrace your light. Seek your life’s mission. Live your purpose and your life will be full of meaning and joy.
