Each one of us carry within us a seed of greatness or a vast potential that is just awaiting to be unearthed and unleashed.
This can be represented mainly through our dreams, passion, talents, desires and aspirations.
Don’t lose sight and connectivity
The harsh reality is that in most cases, this seed or potential never get to see the light of day and are left buried in our graves.
Somehow as we grow older, we get caught up in the humdrum of making a living. We begin to sub-consciously or even consciously to do the things that we feel we have to, instead of doing the things we love to.
Gradually, we lose sight and connectivity with our dreams, passion and aspirations. These possibilities eventually become ideals and fantasies.
Our purpose in life is a life of purpose
On the onset, our purpose is not to live a life of self-indulgence where we use our God-given potential and talents only for our own benefit.
Our true purpose is to be a blessing by serving others by contributing to human society with what we have been given.
For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
We must understand that each one of us were created for this purpose, and the responsibility is on us to discover it. Unearthing and actualising this would ultimately bring us true fulfillment as we live a life of destiny.
Do all that you can to live it out
From the day we were born, our purpose have been calling out to us. As mentioned earlier, it is revealed through our dreams, passion, talents, aspirations and desires in our hearts, and as well as through the circumstances that have trained us to become who we are today.
The challenge is for us to keep stretching ourselves out from our comfort zones and to be courageous in charting towards the direction God is leading us. If not, dogma, people’s expectations, trends and status quo will define what our life purpose is and lead us towards a life of mediocrity.
As it is, we must do all that we can to keep those dreams alive by staying connected to them in all that we do and see as we draw closer to God through His word and prayer.
Only through Him can we be empowered to live out our purpose and to fully actualise our destiny as it is He who planted the seed of greatness and eternity in our hearts and minds.
