When you make the decision to prove your purpose the first step is to become an expert in that area. How is that achieved?… By retrieving knowledge. However, knowledge of a topic, issue, or situation does not make you an expert its the ability to act out the know-how. Information often inspires us to get into action. For example, when we find out how much we weigh (information) we take action to rectify the weight to where it is healthy, in most cases! That information gave us the knowledge or insight that we were in an unhealthy physical state. However, if there is no action the weight remains and we remain unhealthy. If you do nothing with the information you receive for your passion it is just more information, but with action it becomes purpose. Everything we are passionate about is not always what we are only purposed to do. For example, I’m passionate about the educational system but that’s not my overall purpose. Our passions often intertwine making them always relevant to our purpose.
Being a life coach for 18-25 year-old women the discussion of purpose is often discussed. A passion is always a point of reference, but not necessarily the answer. These young women have many passions but its usually one area that they find that they can do for free and enjoy it greatly. That is usually where they begin to discover their purpose. What is it that you love to do and would do it for absolutely free?
If there is no action the purpose is often forgotten, mis-placed, overlooked, or just not pursued. What God has inside of you is for more than you so MOVE IT!
“just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:28).
