5 Secrets That Will Restore Your Passion And Purpose.
“Who knows if perhaps you were made Queen for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14
This passage is the most famous in the Book of Esther…. But for good reason.
We sometimes wonder why we are even here. Why were placed on this earth at this time?
Does God even have a plan for me?
I know we have all thought those thoughts at one time or another.
And just like Queen Esther, we don’t know how many more days we have left on this earth.
Now I am not telling you this to be a downer and start thinking about the end of our lives here but think about it you don’t know how many days we have left as the women God created us to be here on the 3rd rock from the sun.
Even if you knew for sure that you had thousands and thousands of days left why wouldn’t want to fill those days with passion and purpose?
No, you were born to be the Queen of Your Life and you were created for a purpose.
So how? How do you find your purpose and your passion?
You hear about it all the time and people throw this around in some circles but when you look around you see that they aren’t very many people out there who are really choosing to live the life they were created for. I often wonder how people in this world can day after day goes down the path that doesn’t full fill them. They commute to work day after day doing the same job that they think is the right thing to do. But the thing is my beautiful Queen is that you were created for more. To have more in life, be more in life and do more in this life.
You deserve a life that fills your soul with passion and excitement every single day! You deserve to wake up every single morning full of wonder and excitement about what is going happen this day. How are you going to have more, do more and be more on any even given day when you are still going down the path of unfulfillment?
The thing is you are amazing. God gave you so many gifts and talents to be used to glorify Him. He wants you to use those gifts and talents to live an extraordinary life! To use those gifts and talents to make a living. Yes, huge shocker, I know but you are to be living your life every day with passion and using the gifts that God gave you, to do otherwise is really sinning against God. When you aren’t sharing your gifts and talents with the world then you are not glorifying God.
So how do find out what your gifts and talents are?
Here are 5 ways to get you started on how to find out what gifts God has given you…
What Are You Good At?
- The first one is really simple and yet so hard for women to answer, I even still have a hard time answering this one… but really the first question you need to answer is …
What are Ridiculously good at?
I know so simple question yet pack full of unknowns… but really take time with this. Take some time to spend with God, quite and ask Him what I am ridiculously good at? What are the gifts you have given me? What do you want me to share with the rest of the world?
Journal out write as much that comes to mind… there are no wrong answers here. This is all about you.
I will wait…
Ok good, you do it?
I am just going to assume that you went and wrote out all the fabulous things that you are ridiculously good at….
- What type of legacy do you want to leave behind?
What do you want your grandchildren and great-grandchildren to say about you? How do you want them to feel about you?
Once again take your time with this. If this isn’t something that you haven’t thought about before because you knee deep in diaper and bottles and can’t possibly be thinking about grandchildren then yes you need to this. Take time to see what type of legacy you will leave behind. What do you want people to say about you 100 years from now?
For me this my grandkids knowing that I lived a life full of passion, adventure and truly deeply love for Jesus Christ. I truly lived my life full of love for all those around me.
The Things that You Care About:
- What do you really care about? Like really truly deeply care about?
When you find that you are living your dreams and passion every day you find that you start to really care about what is going on around you in your everyday life. At the very heart of what you want out of life is what you give your attention to. If you are not giving your full attention to the things that you truly deeply care about then you are not living the full passionate life that you were created to live.
Take time to journal out what you really want to focus your attention on.
The Way it Should Be:
- What makes you feel that everything in your life is just the way it should be and you are living the life that God created for you? What makes you feel like you are not living the life full of passion and purpose. Write out everything that you want to be, what you want to do and what you want to have in your life. Your feelings and desires. Go wild, don’t worry about if you are getting the answer right. There are no right or wrong answers here, this is your life, your purpose and your gifts no else.
Go back and look at everything you have written down in your journal, do this quick little exercise to work out the top 5 things, your feelings, and desires….
Here is how you go about doing that:
When you look at your list of all the feeling you want to have in your life take the first one and compare it to the second feeling you have written down. Don’t think about too long but which one matters more to you? Cross off the one that matters less to you.
Then keep doing this with all of the things you want in life, all the feeling that you want to have and all the desires you want to have until you come with your top one.
Then go back through the list and do this again about 4 more times until you have the 5 things you want to BE, DO and HAVE in your life.
This is really what your dream life and what your purpose is based on. When you feel good about your life and where your life is going – which is to say you are aligned with what God created you to have, be and do in your life, then you are on the right path, and this what living your dream life is all about.
- What does the world need?
When you take a look around you, in your neighborhood, your city, your country, your content, and the world what do you see? What problems do you see that you could help fix? What does your soul see when you see someone in need? What are the type of things that you could help with? Now, this is really anything, once again there are no right or wrong answers here. Let me say this again….
THERE ARE NO WRONG OR RIGHT ANSWERS!
If you have a flair for fashion or design and you can help women make their homes look better or help them dress better… then is just a powerful as helping with world hunger. God gave you gifts and talents to use to help everyone in the world. So own what you are ridiculously good at. Photography, crafting, blogging, coding, designing, leading, speaking, writing, it is all awesome and worthy of praise. You have a specific purpose to use to Glorify God. For example, my life’s purpose is to empower women to know that they were created for and that is more than OK for them to live their dream life. And I can do that in many different ways, and that purpose has evolved over time and your will too but the key here for today is to just start. Start moving forward into the life that God has created for you. Even if it is for 5 minutes.
So take time spend to look around and see what the world needs and to fulfill that need. You can have your dream life and make all the money you want doing what you love. You don’t have to fall for the lie that you have to be poor in order to use your gifts and talents that God gave you. You don’t have to be that starving artist. Or a starving writer. Remember though that you only get the dream life you want and have all the things you want to be, to have or to do when you do it from a place of service.
When you are serving God and others then you will get the life you were created for.
Each Day, take the morning to ask yourself to create one or more of your top 5 priorities in number 4, as a reality in your life this day. You don’t have to do everything at once, and stop worry if you have gotten everything right. Just focus on one thing at this moment about how you can move closer to your dreams and your purpose. Really that is all you have to do every day and just watch how your life changes over the course of 3 months 6 months and year. Start today!!
Remember You are the Daughter of the Most High God
