Today, my daughter walked across the stage at California Baptist University to receive her Masters degree. Every where I looked I saw the tag line, “Live Your Purpose”.
I thought about those three works for quite a while. It occurred to me that many people do not have, or do not seem to have, a real purpose in their lives. They get up, go to work (if they work), toil all day, go home exhausted, do what is required at home, sleep and then do it all again the next day. If they had a real purpose and if they were living that purpose, they might discover real happiness.
Living for Friday is not a purpose, and neither is living to see the next sunrise. Purpose gives life meaning, and the pursuit of that purpose can provide a sense of satisfaction, achievement and happiness. Perhaps they have a purpose, they have just lost sight of it.
If life seems like an endless cycle, like an assembly line that never stops, then perhaps it’s time to examine your life, change your circumstances and find a purpose…a real purpose.
Perhaps you need to change your environment, your circle of friends, or just the path you are walking. Consider this–Matthew 19:26, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Maybe it’s time to reach out to Him, or reconnect, and seek His wisdom in helping find your true purpose.
