It is rainy. It is cold. My feet are freezing….which reminds me that I need to take my iron pill (good’ol anemia), and I am in no mood to rhyme at the moment. I woke up this morning talking myself out of a self-inflicted piety party. Why? Because I let my heart loose, free range. (Sucka) I know better than this. Have I not learned wisdom in scripture? Yes, indeed! However, this flesh……….those eyes. (And then there is Coy Wire on “Morning Express”) God makes no mistakes!
I will not get into all of that….so moving along.
Have you ever felt like you had no direction in life? There is a spark or a small flame in your heart but you do not know what to feed it in order for it to grow. We have all been in that position. This can often make you feel unimportant or inadequate. Understand this fact first: you were not created without purpose. If you are here right now, it is because God has intentionally placed you here at this very moment, in this very year, this very day, at this very hour. Discover what it is that you have a passion for. Try things out. If it is not for you, at least you’ve tried it.
Writing may not be your only purpose. What can you use your writing for? How can you help someone with your words? The second fact is: Our words have power. Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” These “words” also come through our pens, pencils and wpm. How will you responsibly use them? Finding your purpose can be as simple as you jotting down ideas, who you are, what you want in life.
*What am I passionate about and why?
*What do my relationships look like?
*Where have I been in life? (Remembering where you came from, will help you figure out where you are going.)
*What do I need to reach my destiny?
In the words of Bruce Lee……..
“If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.”
Get it done! One step at a time, you will discover your purpose, as long as you make moves towards it. If you do nothing you will get nothing.
