“A common mistake we make is that we look for God in places where we ourselves wish to find him, yet even in the physical reality this is a complete failure. For example, if you lost your car keys, you would not search where you want to search, you would search where you must in order to find them.” ― Criss Jami,
One of the most important tasks in our human existence is knowing who we are and what we were created for. This is the difference between existing and living, or to take it one step further, living with purpose.
It’s easy to get distracted by the external and internal pressures of life. Trust me, I know.
I am a firm believer that we are all created with a divine purpose. The foundation of that purpose is quite simple. We were created to love and to be loved. To fulfill this purpose we were given special gifts, talents, strengths, and (whether we like it or not) weaknesses that will help us live out our purpose.
I find myself slowly floating away from my purpose from time to time. I loose sight of who I am and what I was put on earth to do. I start to get distracted and loose sight of my destination, next thing you know I am heading all the way left. I find myself lost and then searching for God in a place where He clearly didn’t send me.
