7 Keys for Finding Your Purpose in Life
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:12 -14 (NIV)
Finding your purpose Is the key to living your best life. You don’t have to choose between having success, wealth and prosperity and living a meaningful life. You will find that the more purpose you have, the more success and fulfillment you’ll have as well. Scripture says the Lord's purpose always prevails.
Proverbs 19:21 NIV Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.
There are seven strategies that can help you reveal or find your purpose so you can begin living a more meaningful life. Now let's take a look at the strategies.
1 Donate Time, Money, or Talent
2 Listen to Feedback
It can be hard to recognize the things you feel passionate about sometimes. After all, you probably like to do many different things and the things you love to do may have become so ingrained in your life that you don’t realize how important those things are.
Fortunately, other people might be able to give you some insight. There’s a good chance you’re already displaying your passion and purpose to those around you without even realizing it.
You might choose to reach out to people and ask what reminds them of you or what they think of when you enter their mind. Or you might take note when someone pays you a compliment or makes an observation about you. Write those observations down and look for patterns.
Whether people think of you as “a great teacher” or they say “you have a passion for helping the elderly,” hearing others say what they notice about you might reinforce some of the passions you’ve already been engaging in.
Make this affirmation: The purpose of the Lord is prevailing in my life.
