Can you define in one sentence the purpose, goal and drive of your life?
Paul knew his sentence–read Colossians 1:24-29 and Colossians 2:1-5 in which he identifies his calling and purpose which drove him to give his all.
If you would like the clarity that comes from being able to articulate your “sentence” and to go along withÂ the questions I posted–try these questions.
What do I find the greatest joy in that also brings God the greatest glory?
How have my past experiences (my background–family ofÂ origin, education, events) and my present abilities (God given enablements and gifts) positioned me for future impact?
What activity or type of relationship, not focused on me, replenishes rather thanÂ depletes my emotional energy tank?
Where might God want to use me that does not seem to fit in with my experiences, education, events and enablement? Â What can I learn about myself for the future from being obedient in the present?
Having clarity–on who you were created to be (gifts and abilities), how God has crafted and can redeem your past experiences and background, along with your God given desires–gives freedom and motivation.
