My Life Has Purpose

“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge, nor wisdom.” Ecclesiastes 9:10

The greatest purpose for living is to serve God. He has work for us to do.

We are God’s workmanship (masterpiece) created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God has prepared (chosen) for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:10)

Be faithful in small things.

No work is small when done with great love,” said Mother Teresa

Brother Lawrence, a monk who lived in France during the seventeenth century, saw His work for God as serving in the kitchen. He would stop his work and praise God for the privilege of knowing Him and serving Him this way. His book ‘Practicing the Presence of God’ is still being read today.

Nick Vujicic born without arms and legs determined to find the purpose for his life. Against tremendous challenges, he’s become an international motivational speaker, founded his own company, and speaks about his “ridiculously good life” in his book Life Without Limits.

He writes,

“recognizing your purpose means everything. I assure you that you too have something to contribute. You may not see it now, but you would not be on this planet if that were not true. I know for certain that God does not make mistakes, but he does make miracles. I am one. You are too.’ (Life Without Limits page 31)

Father, we thank you that every life has a purpose. I want to live my life for your glory.
