DISCOVER YOUR PURPOSE

(Discover the Meaning of Life)

MEANING OF LIFE

We all spend a lot of time analyzing our finances, our entertainment, our friends, but do we actually spend time analyzing ourselves and what we are made for?  Do know really know what God has created us individually on earth for? What is truly the meaning of life?

Many cemeteries are filled with people who never tapped into the potential God had given them through Yeshua.  Some stumble through life and miss it.  Some end up doing their purpose part way or at the end of their life.  For some it is pretty obvious what their purpose is, but for many we discover as we go.  This website program is designed for those on the road of discovery.

It has been used to help many people discover their purpose through a series of soul searching questions. This was designed by a Christians like me, who spend many years wanting to know what their purpose was.  Reading the scripture, listening to countless speakers, praying and fasting often – then after many years discovered the answer by looking at the prophets and the disciples.

GREAT COMMISSION

Yes ultimately all our purpose is to Glorify God by sharing the good news of Yeshua to others. But how we go about doing this varies.  For example, Peter went to the Jews and Paul to the Gentiles.  Also how they approached it varied by culture and experience, for example Paul addressing those at Mars Hill.  Where do we start – this is what this program is about?

 

WHO ARE WE

World changers.  We are a group who love the body of Christ and want to see everyone do what God has called them to do.  We also understand that the body is diverse and everyone is unique.  Not everyone is called to the pulpit.  This group of believers paid for the development so that those like you get it for free.

 

CONFIDENTIALITY

The information isn’t shared with anyone, nor is it reviewed nor do we have the time.  This is all about helping Christians be all God has made them to be.  Feel free to download the excel version of the purpose document.

 

DOES IT WORK

Absolutely.  It is like climbing to the top of a mountain, the more you climb the more you can see.  If taken seriously it will be a great tool to help navigate the person to ask the right questions that they never asked themselves before.  We personally do this exercise every 1-2 years to help establish and evaluate visions.  This helps us prioritize how we spend His time and resources effectively for His Kingdom.

 

IS LIFE SPONTANEOUS

Think of it like this, some things are planned and other things are spontaneous.  Even in the Kingdom of God.  Yeshua was laser focused to go to Israel, minister in the surrounding cities and finally went to Jerusalem but this didn’t stop Him from being spontaneous and helping those God puts across His path. Meaning of life is Yeshua.

8 Comments on “YOUR PURPOSE

  1. I just went through the entire “Discover You Purpose” section and it was beautifully automated and it summarized everything so cleanly at the end. This is time very well spent! I’m looking forward to acting on the goals I’ve set.

  2. The purpose document is incredible. After completing it I went back and revised it and my advise is to not take it lightly (as I did the first time round). It is a challenging document, and one that requires a lot of thought. However, if you put the time in – you will be well rewarded with some great answers as to what you can be doing to work toward what you are passionate about in life. More importantly, you’ll be able to purposefully move forward when working for the Kingdom of God.

  3. Focus on the family shared an article that is worth repeating – it sums up finding your purpose. There once was a man who netted three trout from a mountain stream and carefully placed them side-by-side on a thick patch of grass. Before he removed them from the water, they were like a liquid ballet in motion. Fluid. Graceful. Vibrant. Alive.

    After he netted them, it was another story.

    As the trout lay on the grass, they were motionless. Their eyes were fixed. They gasped for air, and they looked — and acted — stupid.

    The man noticed they seemed unhappy, so he talked to them, hoping that his encouragement would change them.

    “Little fish, don’t be sad. You’ll like the grass. Just try it out for a while.”

    No movement. No response. No change.

    A few more seconds passed. The man’s neighbor walked by. “Hey, Bob! Come and check out these fish!”

    Bob sauntered over and the man explained that he was certain the fish could adjust. “I’m sure they could prosper here on the grass. Don’t you agree?”

    “Why not?” Bob replied. So he also tried to tell the fish it would be good if they learned to like the grass. After all, he liked the grass. Why shouldn’t they?

    Still, the fish didn’t blink. They just lay there looking dumber by the second.

    Finally, a little boy approached exclaimed, “What are you doing? Put them back! They can’t be all they’ve been created to be when they are out of the water.”

    Finally convinced, the man carefully placed each fish back in the stream. After splashing for a split second, all three swam away effortlessly. Again, it was like a liquid ballet. What ease! What grace! What beauty!

    In that moment, the man realized that no matter how long the fish lay there they would never adjust to the grass, and would never be satisfied — no matter how much he (or anyone else) told them otherwise. Even if the fish tried to convince themselves they could learn to like the grass, they never would, and they would never prosper. In fact, they would eventually die.

    Do you feel like a fish out of water? Your prolonged dissatisfaction, God-given gifts, passions and the voices of others could be telling you that you were created for another purpose. And like these fish, if you feel like you are dying inside, listen up. It could be just what you need to push you into another, more satisfying ocean.

    Listen to your dissatisfaction

    We’ve been taught to believe that dissatisfaction is a bad thing, and that we should do everything possible to avoid it. Shove it down. Ignore it. Act like it doesn’t bother us. Take a pill. Plaster on a smile. Buy something new, or decide that misery is part of “bearing our cross.” But above all, don’t consider that God might be using it to make us uncomfortable so we’ll want to swim in another ocean where our gifts can shine.

    Don’t get me wrong; dissatisfaction can be a result of spiritual warfare (Eph. 6:10-12) and not an indication that we are out of God’s will. But it can also be a road sign that He has another purpose for us. So if you’re miserable in your current career or job, (and you have been for a long time), you’ve prayed, sought counsel from others, looked for guidance through Scripture, and you’re still miserable, consider that God may have another plan.

    Listen to others

    One of my closest girlfriends lights up when she talks about mentoring young women. She also has tremendous business sense. I’ve suggested that perhaps God may use her to start a mentoring organization or ministry. When I shared my thoughts with her, she said, “You know, I’ve heard that from lots of people.”

    Just as dissatisfaction can be a road sign from God to show you your purpose, listening to what others say about your gifts can do the same; so when someone notices or comments on one of your talents, take note. God may be trying to tell you something through His people.

    There are times, however, when we shouldn’t listen to what others say. But when what they say about us agrees with our passions, internal convictions, gifting and what God has already revealed to us, it can be a solid indication of our God-given purpose.

    Listen to your gifts

    I’ve never liked math. Whenever I come within five feet of a math problem, I break out in hives. Numbers have never been my thing and my guess is that they never will be because God created me with different gifts. Even though I can’t do math, I can write, paint, draw, sing and communicate well. These gifts are also road signs to where God is directing me.

    Have you ever considered your talents and gifts? Do you get a kick out of soccer? Are you a strategic thinker? A great listener? Can you motivate others to action with your words? Are you skilled at building things? I suggest making a list of the things and activities that interest you in which you excel. You can also ask yourself, “What’s the one thing that I do better than others?” This can also clue you in to your God-given purpose.

    The gifts God gives us are like little seeds planted inside us, but for them to grow we have to use them. This means that if you can’t identify which “Gift Seeds” God has given you, try doing new things that interest you. Through these new experiences, God will reveal more to you about who you are and how He has called you to serve Him.

    Listen to your passions

    If I could ask you what makes you angry, joyful, excited or passionate, what would you say? Take note of when your emotions are moved; these times can be a sign of your God-given purpose.

    I get fired up about the godless condition of the world. When I hear about little children being abused, I get angry. When someone tells me a story about loyal love, I am deeply moved. An exquisite arrangement of words on a page fills my heart with passion. A story of someone’s heartbreak grieves me. Talking about Christ stirs me up. When coupled with my talents, these passions point in the direction of my purpose of written and spoken communication about things that deeply impact people on a spiritual and emotional level.

    Pray. Ask God to show you the things that move you and make a list. And remember, He wants you to discover His purpose for you more than you do.

    Lastly, consider that your purpose is not just about you; it’s about what God wants to do through you. Therefore, if you ignore or neglect your dissatisfaction, what others say about you, your gifts and your passions, you are not only betraying yourself, but betraying God; because He has called you to a purpose and wants you to walk in it — for others and for your own joy.

    Also consider that since God has called you, He is completely able to reveal your purpose to you, and He will as you diligently seek Him (Heb. 11:6).

  4. God desire is that we do His Will – here are some Biblical Scripture verses on finding purpose and future. I believe my Heavenly Father, do you?

    Jeremiah 29
    11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

    Jeremiah 31
    16Thus says the LORD: “Refrain your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears; for your work shall be rewarded, says the LORD, and they shall come back from the land of the enemy. 17There is hope in your future, says the LORD, that your children shall come back to their own border.

    Psalm 71
    21You shall increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.

    Psalm 92
    12The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

    Psalm 112
    1 Praise the LORD! Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who delights greatly in His commandments. 2His descendants will be mighty on earth; the generation of the upright will be blessed.

    Joshua 1
    5No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. 6Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. 7Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. 8This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

    Matthew 6
    33But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

    1 Peter 5
    6Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,

    Deuteronomy 15
    7 “If there is among you a poor man of your brethren, within any of the gates in your land which the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart nor shut your hand from your poor brother, 8but you shall open your hand wide to him and willingly lend him sufficient for his need, whatever he needs. 9Beware lest there be a wicked thought in your heart, saying, “The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand,’ and your eye be evil against your poor brother and you give him nothing, and he cry out to the LORD against you, and it become sin among you. 10You shall surely give to him, and your heart should not be grieved when you give to him, because for this thing the LORD your God will bless you in all your works and in all to which you put your hand.

    Deuteronomy 28
    2And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God:
    12The LORD will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.

    Psalm 1
    Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; 2But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night. 3He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.

    Psalm 90
    17And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands.

    Ecclesiastes 3
    13and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor–it is the gift of God.

    James 1
    5 But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and with no reproach, and it shall be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, doubting nothing. For he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven by the wind and tossed.
