What is your destiny? I'm sure we've all thought about that. We've wondered if we were doing the things that would eventually lead us there. We all want to find it. We all want to know what that means to each of us, and how we can obtain it.
What is the fullness of that thing God placed us on this earth to accomplish? It’s hard to really know. How can we ever be sure? I've discovered that there is one key step that will put us on the pathway that leads to our own individual destinies.
What's that step?
Purpose. We must discover our purpose. You're probably thinking, how the heck do I that Chicki? Well, my lovely Gem, that’s a task in itself. I believe that finding your purpose is based on first discovering the gifts and strengths that God has placed inside us.
What are the things you love to do? What are the things you are just naturally good at? What are those things that truly don’t seem like work? In those things is where your purpose begins.
God has given us all special gifts and talents. They are not for us to keep to ourselves, but for us to share with others and the world. You don’t know how many people you can inspire and bless with your special gifts. I know that sometimes we feel like there is nothing really special about us. We feel like others can definitely do it better than we can. The thing is, they can do it good but they can’t do it quite like you.
You are special.
” I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalm 139:14.”
It's right there in the word. You are in fact, fearfully and wonderfully made. There is nobody else in the world like you. There is nobody else in the world that talks like you or puts things together the way that you do. Nobody is exactly the same. There are some people that would love how you do something and not really be into the way another person does it. So many people out there would be in awe of your gifts and talents. That’s why we’re all important as individuals. We all have a place and purpose in this world.
On your road to discovering your destiny, start with your purpose. Discover the things that you are naturally drawn to. Most importantly, don’t leave God out of it. Speak to Him about the concerns of your heart and let Him lead you. When you listen to His direction and begin to use the gifts and talents He blessed you with, your purpose will become clearer. Allow it to lead you to your destiny.
