“Majority of people are doing everything else apart from living their God given purpose.”
This is sad but true that majority of people are so busy doing other things or chasing after things and not living true to their purpose. Most people and out of researching are likely to be unsure of whether they are living a life of purpose or not. They try everything they can in this life thinking it will give them the happiness and satisfaction they so much desire. They wake up early in the morning to go to work, to a job they hate with people they don’t even like just to earn a living. They derive no pleasure whatsoever in what they do. Their lives are full of misery and they are never truly happy. Could this be you? If that is you, then you might need to re-evaluate your life now.
Your life should be full of joy if at all you are doing what you are meant to be doing, if at all you are living and fulfilling your purpose. How many people find themselves working in high end paying jobs not because they are happy working there but because of the money alone. They even say if it is not the money they are earning, they couldn’t ever want to work there. Well, their argument to support this is, “You know, I have bills to pay, I want a better life, I have mortgage to pay off”, and so on and so forth. While all these may be valid reasons to justify their argument, this is not the will of God for you and me. The will of God is for you to be happy doing whatever it is that you are doing whether you are getting paid for it or not. Your job should not make you miserable, it is supposed to give you not only pay check at the end of the month but also satisfaction and fulfilment.
Majority of people find themselves in this situation. If you are one of them you need to have some quiet time with yourself, and ask yourself the following questions:
1.Why am I not happy?
2. What job could I possibly enjoy doing even if it is paying me less?
3. What makes me feel enriched and fulfilled or what do I enjoy doing?
We always want more in life and we feel the more we have the happier we become, but more is not always the solution to our problems. The solution to our problem is understanding the reason why we are here and discovering our true purpose in life. True happiness can only be found when we are living and fulfilling our divine purpose, otherwise we will keep chasing the wind to no avail. Let us desire to do what makes us shine in life instead of just wanting to accumulate more and more and we end up miserable and frustrated.
