I welcome you to this glorious time in God’s presence. This month, we shall be looking at: Single and Purpose. In this segment, I will be sharing on Living a Meaningful Life.
The discovery of the reason for your existence is what gives meaning to life. Finding what you are created to do and doing it, will make you a single with value and positive distinction.
Man, apart from all other creatures, is a seeker of meaning. Without it, life feels empty and provides no genuine satisfaction. Power, wealth, or pleasures are hollow in and of themselves, leading to nothing but a craving for more. It’s only when they come as natural by-products of our will and passion to create, to give, and to serve that they truly enrich us.
When you have a clear purpose for living and walk in its consciousness, you feel enriched and eager for each day.
Purposeful living gives us a sense of direction. It lets us spot opportunities to express ourselves in ways that give us feelings of satisfaction and self-worth. When we know what is meaningful to us, we face our days with courage and see them as offering us yet another chance to experience life’s challenges with strength and a determination to be the best we can be.
Many in life are not fulfilled, because they are yet to discover their mission on earth. Remember, life is a journey and only those with definite destination ever get there.
One way to drill down to the attitudes and values that mean the most to you, is to assess your personal strengths. Is it important to you to be courageous, creative, kind, authentic, and a strong leader? Then, knowing your top strengths will give you guidelines to follow, when you’re faced with a choice about how you want to respond to the world. It allows you to choose in a way that’s meaningful for you.
Take the time to identify what’s most meaningful in your life, then commit yourself to it with all your heart. Not only will you feel a heightened sense of self-worth, purpose and direction, but you will touch the lives of others in meaningful ways, too. That’s just the way it works. Isn’t that beautiful? You will get there!
Living a meaningful life is having Jesus in your life. This entails confessing your sins and accepting Him as your Lord and Saviour. Are you ready for this new birth experience? If you are, please say this prayer: “Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today as a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. I believe You died and rose on the third day for my sins. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”
Congratulations, you are now born again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary. All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you in Jesus’ Name!
