How Do I Know What I Am Supposed To Do With My Life?

By Beth Hitesman

Everyone has a purpose in life"a reason for being. Somewhere deep inside we know this; we can feel it. God, in his wisdom, gave us our own unique talents, gifts and callings. We were created to share those gifts with the world.

Isn't it fascinating? In the history of the whole world, there has never been a person exactly like you, nor will there ever be. You are the only one who can fulfill your purpose "and you only have one life to do it.

Unfortunately, no one can tell you exactly what your specific life purpose is-- the answer is yours to uncover.

However, fortunately, we have a God whose deepest desire is to show us the way. We don't even need special abilities"the only ability God requires is availability!

Here are four quick strategies to help you find and live your purpose.

First, ask God to reveal his will in your life (He loves to do this)! Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:46

Second, look for the dream that keeps coming back. It is your destiny. God puts his desires in your heart. The things you love to do and want to do--these are your callings"trust them.

Third, watch for direction and guidance. Rarely does God swoop down from heaven in a brilliant flash of light and etch our life's calling onto a stone tablet. Instead, He speaks through the everyday world around us, "I will instruct you and lead you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. (Psalm 32.8)

Fourth, believe that God has the power, strength and desire to work in your life. After all, his whole point in creating you was so that you could have a close relationship with Him and fulfill your destiny. (He created the whole world, don't you think he can handle your life)?

Remember, only you can live the dream God created for you"only you can fulfill your purpose. Have fun finding it and living it!
