Do you ever wonder what you’re here for? Why you are here on Earth? Why do you exist? What’s our purpose? Before answering those questions, let’s find out what purpose actually means.
Purpose is the aim or goal of something. It is the reason why something is done.
Now that we’ve got that sorted, let’s get our heads focused on this topic. Many people have already found their purpose, but many are still struggling to find their calling. I am one of those and if you are too, you are definitely not alone. I’ve met quite a lot of people who have their whole life planned out. They know what college they would like to go to, what course they’re going to take, and what job they want to have in the future. As for me, I have absolutely no idea.
There have been plenty of times where I question my existence. I would wonder if I was made to do great things or to just be in the sidelines. It was only recently where I genuinely felt like my life won’t go anywhere, but God spoke to me. He gave me an answer through a Christian Living lesson. He told me everyone is created for a reason.
God gave us special skills and abilities and we should never hide them. We must use them to bring Him glory. Now, this is what struck me the most. We are not called to succeed all the time. We may fail, but we shouldn’t lose hope. Being a golfer who started quite late, I tend to rush things. I want to be like those golfers you see on TV and on magazines, but I know it won’t happen immediately. The reason why this hit me is because I tend to make so many mistakes on the golf course and get upset about it. I have to keep reminding myself that to get to the top, I have to endure obstacles first. I will fail, but I won’t give up. I will fall, but I will thank God for each trial. Once I finally have a victory, I will praise Him. Through everything, He’s been by my side no matter what.
We may not realize what life has in store for us now, but we shouldn’t worry! God has a plan for each of us and we shouldn’t lose faith.
