Since starting my public sector career, I knew serving others was my passion. Not just serving but truly making a difference in the lives of those that rely on municipal services. Lately however, I've found myself questioning my purpose and asking if this is my DIVINE purpose.
2 Corinthians 1:17 reads, "When I therefore was thus minded, did I use lightness? Or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be yea, yea and nay nay?
I interpret this scripture to question whether or not our self professed purpose, identified initially perhaps out of necessity, or because it makes us feel good, or because of the attention high profile positions or projects receive, is truly our ultimate God ordained purpose. Are we truly stretching our abilities capable of pinnacle? Are we unconsciously settling because we may feel our purpose has been fulfilled? Is FEAR keeping you from questioning your true divine purpose?
In a world that has undoubtedly changed and has exposed the need for us to change with it, should we question (again perhaps) our purpose in the hope that it may reveal a wonderful, fascinating, divine, fulfilling and reimagined plan for our lives? I don't know but it's certainly worth exploring!
