First, lets look at this throwback workout. It came from a summer softball conditioning program from the University of Central Arkansas, and I still use it.
Lately, on Twitter, Lynette Lewis has been tweeting about the importance of knowing your purpose. She might always tweet purpose driven tweets, however the past three days, (since this is when I decided to utilize Twitter more), I have been drawn to four in particular.
When I look at these tweets I am motivated, and at the same time overwhelmed. I want to say Lynette! How do I know, for sure, what my purpose is?! I struggle daily with this question. How do I know which direction I should take my life? How do I know if I am supposed to be getting my masters, working part-time at a cupcakery, and volunteering at Whispers of Hope? My go-to answer is to just keep going. Keep moving, because standing still is worse than going know where. Purpose may not always be defined by a job title, but is always present where you are.
Driving forward with my doubts, forces me to look up. Looking up to thank God for his provision and to ask Him to fill me up with His joy. The Joy gives me passion, hope, and sometimes reveals a purpose.
Deep down, I think that your passion is where your purpose comes from. What gets you going? Makes you want to do a funky dance or run a marathon?What fills up your cup?
Unfortunately, the things that make you most excited, can sometimes look the most out of reach. Seeing a clear path to success, has little to do with your purpose. Your purpose might be on the top of Mount Everest, you know it is there, so you just keep climbing.
Lynette says, that “regardless of the hurdles you face, you can be deeply, richly satisfied, as you do what you are made to do.”
Do you ever question what your purpose is? Regardless of how plausible it may seem, what do you dream about achieving?
I question my purpose all the time, and then I am reminded of what I am good at. Then my passions are revealed causing ideas to overflow! I want to write books, build websites, make life easier for people, train horses and be a woman of influence.
