Living your life for a Purpose. What's yours?
Do you ever sit back and wonder how things would have been if you were someone else? Or where you would be in your life today if certain situations in your life had never happened? Well, that is the line of thought I was having on Thursday when I had the great honor of meeting a young lady who made me change my perspective of this life we live. She is a young woman, in her late twenties but when she narrates her story to you, you will be forgiven for thinking she’s lived for a century.
I need to share a few things with you about this woman to help you understand where my message today is stemming from. She hails from Kagera and was born in a humble background in a family of seven. She is the only girl in their family and as a result her father thought she would be better off living with his brother and his wife here in Dar Es Salaam, where she would supposedly be exposed to more opportunities. What he did not know is that his decision to send her to Dar Es Salaam was bound to scar her life permanently, literally.
Once again you've read my
Once again you've read my mind.Thank you for sharing because i'm soo encouraged. i don't know yet what my purpose in life is but i know that God will reveal it in good time. Indeed i believe that my future is greater than my past and recently i learnt sadly after the demise of my Dad that i had earned his respect after so many years of heartache.I was greatly humbled. Now you have just confrmed by sharing this.
I can only say thank you.You are blessed and you have been placed here for such a time as this.To be a beacon of hope to the faint-hearted and for those who have been looking for direction, acompass to lokk up to and to have the courage to start all over again.All in the name of finding our purpose in life.Be blessed my dear.

The point could not have been
The point could not have been more clearly expressed; find your purpose and fulfill your destiny! I do however want to emphasize on the part of doing it without expecting "remuneration". As you said, in this day and age, the slogan of choice is "scratch mine I scratch yours". So when you set out to do a good deed, people around you are asking "what's the catch?". They can't believe that you can do it just cause you want! You get labels like "goody two shoes", "Mr. Philanthropic". So when you set out to do good do it using the slogan "do it as you would for Jesus!" This is the key to fulfillment and blessings.
