29 Dec

I have been reading a sequel of books by Penny Culliford. They are in form of a diary by a lady called Theodora who is looking for her ministry. There are three books which journal around three years of her life, from when she was 29 to around 31. She is married and has a baby and still does not find her ministry! But her life is adorable all the same.

I guess by ministry what we usually mean is purpose. I am yet to find my purpose. I sometimes think I have found it but when I think about it maybe not. We all have a purpose in this life; a way in which we could impact the world around us. I don’t want to be in my 30s before I know why I was created at this time and why I am where am at.

So the other day, I got an idea (hello sunshine after days and days of grey clouds). I know purpose is intertwined with the things one is passionate about. I was talking to someone (I have some deep friends I tell you) and they reminded me of something I was really passionate about but had forgotten. It is something I like and am very good at. It would go hand in hand with my gifts and wouldn’t it be lovely if I could make a career out of something I love. I know it’s just an idea but it feels like I have a solution to the global warming mess or the secret to ‘happily ever after’.
So what is it? I want to set the world on fire! I only have hazy pictures and have no idea how it will set the world on fire but I am putting it in God’s hand. I have no step by step plan as yet but I know in the next one year I will be in the body of it. I am sure my purpose will be clear at the end of it all.

Do you know your purpose? If not, do you struggle with not knowing? If yes, please share.

I want to set the world on fire
until it’s burning bright for You
it’s everything that I desire
Can I be the one You use?

I am small but
You are big enough
I am weak but
You are strong enough

To take my dreams
come and give them wings
Lord with you
there’s nothing I cannot do
