So what's on my mind?? This, this is what has been on my mind a lot lately.. Purpose, what truly is my purpose here?? Well although I will say I am still constantly praying and seeking guidance, what I do know is...my purpose here in this life is to love and help others.. and I have such a passion for that.. whether it be my husband, children, co-workers, students, friends, plexus customers, acquaintances- I simply want to help them... And by that I feel I am loving them or vice versa- loving them may simply help them through that day or valley.
What sometimes is so hard and I struggle with so.....is I often have to accept first of all I am not always right, so what I feel someone may need- they may not want and I have no control over that. Also I have to understand- I can't do it ALL and my loving husband is so kind to remind me of that sometimes!!!! Man that's a hard one for me. Am I the only one who wants to do everything and address every need and then gets discouraged when that can't possibly happen? I am only human after all.
As a mom/ teacher I can do, say, teach and train all I want and at the end of the day my children/ students as well as all human beings are given free will and can therefore choose whatever they want, will act or react. Also so hard to swallow sometimes.
What I have learned through the journey of fulfilling my purpose here this... I will continue to love and help others. Sometimes it's hard, not viewed as helpful, being done out of love or even wanted. But I will make myself available for purposes higher than me. And though somedays and weeks are hard, filled with dissapointment, exhaustion and discouragement, I'll be right back for more the following week, why?? Because I know this is my purpose, not to live a self seeking, self loving life. But to live a purposful life through Christ. I was reminded so many times in the last 6 months how precious life is and how short it also is, even if days feel long... Life is short, and for many, far shorter than anyone expected.... No one knows when your time will expire. I hope you find your purpose in life, and ROCK IT!!!
If you know your purpose, I'd love to hear it.
