What is my purpose?
Updated: Jan 18, 2022
When someone asks me what their purpose is, here’s how I respond...
To be happy.
I believe we are God’s children. And as a parent, what do you want most for your child?
For them to be happy.
Happy means something different for everyone.
It’s not only fun, which too much can be destructive. It’s not only service, which too much can make you forget about self-care. It’s not only work, which too much can be habitual.
I believe your purpose is found through experiencing. Find what makes you happy and do more of it.
Jesus is called the Prince of Peace for a reason. It’s unnecessary to be anxious when you know how much you are loved.
I asked God once: “God, can you please protect me from people who want to hurt me?”
He responded in action with this: “Lauren, I’ll build you from the inside, so you will learn to protect yourself. I’ll teach you discernment.”
Religion is different than a personal relationship with Him. Your relationship with Him is yours alone… in your own room…
6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.
8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
