I have been thinking a lot about my purpose here on this earth with New Years resolutions and such….I have been raising kiddos for many years yet I still feel that I am not “enough” much of the time. Why is that??
As I think through purpose I know deep in my soul that God calls each of us differently..to different places, people, ways…..but what is my purpose???? Raising kids, being a good wife, mother, friend…maybe a writer some day???? I feel that it must be much deeper than that….perhaps the purpose of our soul not merely how we spend our days in the minutia of duties???? Does this even make sense?? We must spend our days in all that minutia yet it has to be deeper right?….
As I get older the days seem to be passing like shadows….if I’m not careful they will be gone and I may not have found my purpose??? It is in that thought that I know the purpose of this life is not for me and what I have to offer……it is only about God and what he chooses to do with and in me…therefore I will listen more intently….
“He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace” (2 Timothy 1:9).
Gosh I have been wrestling with this too! Maybe it is age? I have been asking God and trying to sit and listen….let ya know when I hear something! 🙂
