Have you noticed the confusion, which seems to pervade in our world today? People seem to be going in all different directions. Many have no aspirations to pursue. There's no direction to their living. There's no reasoning to their works. They appear to be in a hurry, but are rushing to what purpose?
If you don't live life with a purpose, you live life by accident. You could end up wandering from side to side down the pathway of life, never knowing the bounty that could be yours.
Take time to think deeply. Listen to God and your inner self. Be patient and understand your unique gifts and know the reason why you are here. There are many opportunities along the way to serve your purposes.
Your highest purposes should be in giving and serving others. You don't need to expect anything in return. You will truly know the blessings of life when you can give of self, desiring nothing but the satisfaction of a job well done.
Be true to yourself. Don't confuse yourself by living for God on Sunday morning and living for self the rest of the week. Don't confuse yourself by trying to be someone you're not. Don't confuse yourself by following the wrong people. Your living isn't to be compromised. God created you for a purpose.
Find out that reason; pursue it tenaciously, and live your life with purpose.
