Inspiration for finding and fulfiling purpose.

{jcomments off}

identityHave you ever asked yourself the question, "why am I here?" or "what am I here for?" Self awareness is a natural phenomenon that dawns on an individual as one steps into teenage years, and in some cases, much earlier. We  become more aware of what people think about us and how we are perceived, and most times we try to align our actions in a manner that presents us in good light.

The downside of living our lives trying to impress others is the fact that we quickly loose our sense of individuality and consistently pursue outward acceptance which often leads to frustration. I came to a conclusion that one of the most difficult feats in life is trying to please everyone. You will easily become exhausted and frustrated trying to do this, rather work towards being the best you can. This simply means you strive for excellence in all things whilst accepting yourself just the way you are. 

Psalm 139:14 says You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Before you were formed in your mother's womb, God knew you and packaged you for your world Jeremiah 1:5. Don't try to be someone else. Be all God has purposed you to be.

Decide today to follow God's blueprint for your life and you will live a fulfilled and blessed life.
