Have you ever asked, “Why am I here?”

I have.

There have been many times when I have wondered why I was here on earth, especially in my times of failure.
Often failure can lead us to believe that our existence here on earth is a waste of time.

But when you understand that regardless of your circumstance, God has created you for a purpose, you will learn to press past tough situations and overcome the mistakes that can hinder you from discovering your purpose.

For many women, we often base our purpose on who we are with, how we feel, or our strengths. While some of these things can help us to discover our mission, our ultimate Indicator, and standard for getting a clear sense of our purpose are God.
He will give us direction and guidance for discovering our purpose if we seek Him.

However, some mistakes can hinder us from discovering and walking out our purpose if we’re not careful.

These mistakes include:
• Not understanding or receiving God’s unconditional love for us. It’s important to know that God loves you, unconditionally. So many times, we base God’s love for us on our human relationships or current circumstances. But God loves you on a bad hair day, whether you can fit your clothes correctly or not, or even if you just broke your brand new stiletto! He still loves you — no strings attached. It is essential to understand.

• You are not grateful for the blessings God has already provided for you. When you learn to appreciate the benefits God has already given you, it lays the foundation for Him to provide more guidance, direction, and resources to help you fulfill your purpose.

• You are not hearing God’s voice. Hearing God’s voice is key to getting a clear direction for discovering your purpose. If you can’t hear God’s voice, you will listen to voices that take you off track from your goal. It’s so important to recognize God’s voice and decipher between His voice, your voice, and the devil’s voice.

All of the above items require you have a genuine relationship with God. However, when you don’t have this relationship in its proper perspective, you will miss God’s heart and mind. Ultimately, this could cause you to lose sight of God’s plan for your life and never discover your purpose.

Do your part to find your purpose by:
• Understanding and receiving God’s love for you
• Becoming grateful for what you already have
• Learning to hear God’s voice
