The Purpose of Your Life

Thought for the Week

We are not the only creatures on earth who look up at the stars.

But we are the only ones who look up and ask, “Why?”

“Yes, your life has a purpose.” said Rhema.

“What?” Gina replied.

“It is what you wanted to know, and the answer is yes. But you must understand, and you must promise to tell your brother that…

The purpose of your life did not begin with you,

and it will not end with you.”

    Finding and living out our purpose is the most rewarding, most exciting and at the same time most scariest adventure we embark. It always ends on our knees, either in desperation or in awe.

    Amen. I never thought about it that way, “The purpose of your life did not begin with you,
    and it will not end with you.”

    It’s very paradoxical but beautiful that the purpose of our life was given to us, yet we must use our own free will and abilities to discover just what that purpose is so that we can fulfill it.

  10. “The purpose of your life did not begin with you, and it will not end with you.” This leads me to think that our purpose is much larger than us and is not simply an individual endeavour.

    What a thought provoking post! 😊
