Living on purpose is the path to peace.The greatest tragedy is not death, but life without purpose.
My personal purpose/mission statement drives, excites and motivates me every day. Every morning, I never fail to recite and declare it. It’s a good way to start the day. It makes me excited about the day. It is something that I look forward to every day. It serves as God’s reminder for me that I have a great job and responsibility to do every day. It helps me simplify the things I have to do and focus on the essentials. All areas of my life revolve around and are anchored on it. Without it, I can’t find meaning in everything I do. Without a purpose, I am not living, but simply existing.
My Personal Purpose Statement:
To help people to know, love and serve God more by inspiring them, touching their hearts and transforming their lives in my words and deeds, through my simple, fun, creative and meaningful ways
There are people who misunderstand me and think that the driving force in my life is the approval of others. I have my limitations and shortcomings. I personally and humbly admit that sometimes this is my reason and motivation in performing my tasks and fulfilling my responsibilities. I want to be affirmed, appreciated and recognized. I am hungry for the approval of others.
However, I want my personal mission/purpose statement be the driving force in my life. I want God to use me for the purpose He created me. I want to do things for the greater glory of God and in the service of my fellowmen.
“You, Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in You.” Isaiah 26:3
Lord, give me the strength, perseverance, humility, faith and courage to fulfill my purpose in life. I believe You have entrusted this specific mission to me, and to no one else in this world, because You believe in me. May I not fail You. Amen.
