4 Ways To Discover Your God-Given Purposes

Discover your God-given purposes, discovery your gifts and abilities
From my vantage point of almost 64 years of life, let me give you some suggestions for finding your role in God's kingdom:

1. Try new things!
Don't limit yourself, especially during the first 40-50 years of your life. Doing a variety of things, even things out of your comfort zone, teaches you important lessons.  (How, Not What).

2. Humbly learn from others.
I once edited submissions to a devotional blog, and I learned that many mediocre writers refuse suggestions or edits while most good writers want them (Proverbs 4:13, Proverbs 23:22, 1 Peter 5:5).

3. Never stop learning.
There's always something new to learn. Regularly seek improvement (Colossians 3:23, Waste or Invest


4. Set your mind on God's plan.
Despite the popular saying that we can do whatever we set our minds to do, we can't and we shouldn't. We need to seek God's will, not ours (1 Peter 4:10-11, You Can't).

  2. This is so true, and so beautiful about finding ourselves. I might add, that at ages between 50 and whenever it is also go to revisit what we enjoyed earlier in our life. I was once very depressed and burned out. The realization came to me that I didn't promise anybody to do the same thing forever . I volunteered at a hospital and it took the depression away. How could I feel sorry for myself when so many had so little to be grateful for. Of course I had help from God too! We were all created with this little voice that says yes, yes, when we are happy doing something. We need to listen to that voice and be thankful we can make changes (I am 71 now and look forward to many many years of being creative and enjoying it with all the little people in my life and my family and friends)
