Tomorrow I will be turning 27! An age where I used to think my life would be “figured out” and I would be doing some great thing to change the world. Now I look at my life and ask myself, have I achieved what God has wanted me to achieve so far? Am I doing what I was born to do? I’ve always been a dreamer (I even wrote a song about it) and I sit and ponder (as I do every time I have a birthday); I ask myself these tough questions and I really don’t want to make myself feel better. I just want to be honest.
Am I making a difference in this world? Am I living life to its fullest? Am I leaving a legacy that I will be commended for when I die?
We are 2 weeks into this adventure and right now I am feeling like I have a lot of questions I need to ask myself honestly so that this adventure doesn’t waste itself. To be honest, I don’t know the answers to the questions of my specific purpose (if you do then please share because I would really like to know!) but I do know a few things: I know that I am made to love people like Jesus did. Without an agenda, without needing to be loved back, the kind of love that doesn’t fail.
I guess if I start with that then that is a big enough challenge of its own right! If you feel like you are living your purpose then please share… I’d really love the encouragement in knowing that people are actually able to find it!
