What is My Purpose?

Linda Evans Shepherd:

If you have ever wondered, ‘What is my purpose?’, you’re moving in the right direction.  Did you know that people who discover their purpose are happier, less likely to harm themselves and more likely to live fulfilling lives than those who never work through this question?

So, if you’re feeling down, confused, or just stuck, it’s a good idea to take some time to explore your purpose.  And yes of course you do have one — you have a purpose for good, not for evil and God agrees.

Ephesians 3:20-21 (AMP) says,

Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams.]

What this means is that through God’s power working in you, God will superabundantly use your life in ways even better that what you’ve prayed, desired, thought, hoped or dreamed.   And it also means that even if you’ve never even desired a goal or dream for your life, God can surprise you with a powerful purpose. But it might help you to pray:

Dear Lord,

I’m praying now for purpose, and I’m asking that you give me the dreams and goals that you have for me.  I also ask for your supernatural ability to follow those dreams and goals —  in your power.  Make my life count Lord, with purpose, your purpose.  And the best of it is, I know that you can take my past mistakes and turn them around into wonderful purposes like helping others through the same difficulties I’ve survived.

But whatever Lord, I’ve decided to give my live for  you and trust you with my future.

In Jesus name,

Are you still wondering, ‘What is my purpose?’.  I suggest you take a peek at the YouTube below with Ophra and Bishop T.D. Jakes who says, “We may not be perfect people living in perfect situations, but we all have the ability to ignite our passions and find our true purpose at any age.”

  1. I have attempt suicide twice and have been hospitalized both times afterwards. I am currently on medication for depression and anxiety but still feel like dying much of the time. I am not in therapy because of insurance, or lack there of, issues. I, along with my family, pray that medication is enough for now.

      Hi Lynda,
      Bless you! I’m so sorry that you are going through this and I want you to know that I care and that you are in my prayers. I would also encourage you to read my article, I Need Hope Now. Please print it out and every morning, if you will, could you read the scriptures and pray that prayer? The thing that can heal you is the understanding that God loves you, has a purpose for you – a purpose that will make a difference in the lives of others. I believe there is hope for you, and meditating on those scriptures and praying the prayer in this article, will help break through the darkness.

      I know what I’m talking about because I too was once where you are now, and today I am living through the hope and love of God – and passing it on to others. I find that it’s people like us that the enemy comes after with his grief, depression and darkness — because he knows we have purpose, work to do – and that God has great love for us. The enemy is the one who would love to stop us from finding that hope and purpose that God has prepared for us.
      I believe in you. I believe you will break through the darkness.
      Love you!!!
