Last night I listened to a short clip on YouTube and it was how to find out what your purpose is with 5 easy questions.  I dont know who the man was that spoke.  It appeared to be a secular meeting of some type and not a church setting.  This is what he said.  I was surprised this guy automatically assumed that everyone's purpose seemed to be about serving.  

I tried to apply the questions to secular jobs/ skills/ talents, etc and it seemed to fit life in general.  A lot of people use their talents and skills only for self-purpose of money and self-satisfaction, but the bottom line is that God Himself gave everyone their gifts, skills, etc. and He has a purpose for them. 

  • Who you are.
  • What you do with passion.
  • Who did you do it for.
  • What those people wanted/needed.
  • How they / life changed as a result.

I'm currently searching for my "calling" or purpose in life, so this post speaks to me. I have noticed that God sometimes uses weaknesses, not strengths, perhaps finding the weakest vessel to be the most willing -- and least able. The weakest vessel is forced, by her/his dis-ability, to rely solely on God. That makes the weakest the strongest.

I happen to have a set of abilities in the teaching/writing area. These are my strengths in the natural, in the flesh. I'm not at all sure that God wants me to continue down this path. I'm still waiting to hear His voice, to get his guidance as to what I should be doing and how He wants me to serve Him. 

What I'm trying to get at, obliquely, is that the speaker heard on television who emphasized natural gifts for service is seeing the glass half-empty. What matters is the calling. God enables the least likely, at times. 

Hi Kristin, what comes to me is that God created you for Himself.  Your calling is HIM.  He loves you with passionate, unending love.  For you - every road, detour and dead end will always will lead to Him.  As you concentrate on drawing closer to Him and searching for Him, strongly clinging to Him, He will make your calling and purpose on earth very clear.  

God's kingdom is God's domain, His will in heaven to come to earth.  First within us, then that results into the earth.

Matthew 6:33-34 But seek you first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for tomorrow: for tomorrow shall take thought of the things for itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
