If your purpose isn’t about you and you shouldn’t look to others to find your purpose, are you wondering how you’ll ever find it?
Your purpose will be found mostly in the everyday, as we’ve mentioned before. From the moment your eyes pop-open in the morning to the moment you crawl back in bed – there is purpose waiting for you.
For all of us that purpose is different. So many times our season of life — college age, young married, young parents, employed, unemployed, healthy, sick, aged — will guide us into the area of purpose God wants us pursuing at the moment.
If we don’t live our everyday lives with responsibility and with Godly stewardship of our time, then how can we expect God to open doors for us to pursue something bigger for Him. Take it from one who got caught up in this rut for years. I spent so much time complaining to God about my everyday ordinary life that I’m sure He wanted to smack me one!
Be faithful in the little things of life and He will give you more as your obedience increases.
By. The. Way. What constitutes a little thing?
Why do we consider aspects of our life “little”?
If you’re going to college — that’s HUGE as it opens doors for tomorrow.
If you are home raising young children — that’s HUGE as you’re raising Godly leaders.
If you’re caring for the elderly — that’s HUGE as you minister and love on them.
If you’re caught up in a low paying job — that’s HUGE as you have a job and can move up from there.
Who dictates what “little” is?
Lord, forgive me for seeing the everyday routines as “little”. They are certainly HUGE! They are where you can use me. They are your moments and each of those are HUGE! Thank you for making the little things not so little, but HUGE.
