Every person has the desire to find the reason that they were placed on this earth. Often they try to figure it out themselves by trying different careers, experimenting with various careers, majors in college and multiple relationships in their search for happiness, contentment and success.While we are searching we are unaware that we only need be still. The Lord created each and every oneof us for a certain purpose. Despite the fact that we are impatient He is patient. He knows what we are going to do and He has given each of us free will because He knows that we need to experience certain things (good and even devastating) in order to lead us to the purpose for which we were created.
All of our successes, failures, experiences, “chance” meetings, relationships, disappointments and tragedies are designed to make us into the person that the Lord created us to be. We only need listen to Him, pray and continue the path that He has set before us because we were each created and made for the purpose that the Lord has chosen specifically for us.
The Lord also gave each of us the desire to know our purpose. So we stumble along trying to figure it out when He has already given us a detailed map. Our journey is that map of interconnected experiences that we rarely pay attention to as we go through our lives. I discovered this when I found myself unemployed and I reflected on my life. This is when the Lord gave me the title of the book and I began to write, not knowing where He was taking me, but knowing that He wanted to reveal something to me through the book.
What I learned is that our lives are masterfully designed by the Lord to lead us toward the reason that He created each and every one of us. There is no one like you. So when you allow yourself to feel that you have no direction, value or importance check yourself. God does not mistakes, and you are of great value to Him and those whose lives you will affect. Look back at the chance meetings, people in your life, the difficult times and the incredible “coincidences”, and you will see that you are not only important, but you will find that these were not coincidences at all. You are an important part of God’s master plan.
