Purpose—A New One Coming

For a long time I have been trying to figure out what my purpose is for this time in my life. I haven’t been able to come up with anything. One day I was thinking about my purpose and I realized years ago I knew what my purpose was then but it hasn’t fit in my life for many years.
My purpose then was to minister to my husband and children and the children in the neighborhood.
A part of my purpose was aborted because of divorce. I still fulfilled the part that included my children and other children. Today my children and grandchildren are grown and live in another part of the country.
Where does that leave me as far as a purpose? I don’t know. I haven’t gotten a revelation of another purpose so far and that concerns me.
I heard someone say that passion and purpose are partners. So what does that mean to me? I now wonder what my passion is. Could it be my painting, jewelry making, and cake decorating— what? At the time I was delving in those crafts I had a passion for them but that is long gone.
I’m still struggling with this issue today. Until I get a clear picture I’ll just keep moving forward in the things I do daily. Maybe one day my purpose will be apparent.

Do you know what your purpose in life is? Are you fulfilling your purpose?

  1. Keep your mind on God and he will keep you in perfect peace. You did not get a divorce from God but from a man. Your purpose has been and always will be to give God the glory. Continue to minister to everyone as you come across them. As you do this, your purpose will become clearer to you.

    • You have encouraged me in the past. There is much inside of you that God is trying to bring to the surface. As you continue to trust God, God will give you the desires of your heart. So be blessed and don’t let go of his unchanging hand.

      • I will continue to hold tight to His unchanging hand and keep my eyes on Him to know the direction I need to go to be His light in a dark place. Thanks for encouraging me. You have a heart of an encourager.
        Blessings,
        Emma
