CREATED TO WORSHIP

Worship, the primary purpose for which we were created.

One of the pursuits we all have in common is our desire to know, understand, and fulfill our purpose in life. The age-old why am I here question and man’s constant search for meaning in life.

I have found a few things to be true.

1* We were created spirit soul and body; the majority will say body, soul, and spirit. I beg to differ, without the spirit which is everlasting the body and soul remains dead, dormant unable to function.

2* When we die the spirit lives on, that’s who we truly are. The soul kept alive by the spirit is who we are, our personalities, our character our talents and our abilities are within our soul. Our mind conscious and subconscious dictates how the soul functions.

3* The body is our house our packaging. We all come in our own unique packaging,  The marvel of this mystery is so incredibly amazing that God when he created us in his vast wisdom made us different; even identical twins who may appear to look the same. Their packaging is still different; their fingerprints are not the same.

4* What we do have in common is the capacity to worship God. Man’s search for God has led to the formation of numerous religions. God is his search for a man, created in us a longing desire to worship him.

Hummmmmm?

You know I am always pushing you to think; ask yourself the question, why is it so many famous people who appear to have it all, end their lives by committing suicide. We were created with a capacity for worship; when this is left void, the emptiness creates a longing for fulfillment, completion or should I say true happiness. I did some research the list was endless; the vast volume of public figures; individuals who took their lives was alarming. Death by suicide shows no respect for age, sex, class, talent – prince, or princes. I challenge you to research it for yourself.

Actor and comedian Robin Williams hanged himself in 2014.

I can recall hearing of the death of Robin Williams, he was my favorite comedian-actor, and I really don’t like comedy but the man was good, in fact great. Who would have thought someone like that would have taken his own life.

Let’s bring this home, you need to find your worship experience, get to know God for yourself. A great place to start is by reading your bible and asking God to reveal himself; the truth, to you. This is the basis of worship. To get to know God in a real and intimate way.

Seek after God for yourself so you can pass on what you learn to your children. Let this a part of your legacy. This is the greatest gift you can leave your child, the ability to know God for themselves and worship him.

I am excited about my walk with God, he gives true meaning to life, that way I awake each day with purpose. Share in this excitement.

YOUR SEARCH FOR PURPOSE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome back to Break Every Chain; personal freedom is our desire for you.

As I think of sharing with you today, there is a beautiful song from way back in the fifties which comes to mind. Let’s look at some of those lines.

“Que Sera Sera” first recorded in 1956 by Doris Day

When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother, what will I be
Will I be pretty
Will I be rich
Here’s what she said to me

Que será, será
Whatever will be, will be
The future’s not ours to see
Que será, será
What will be, will be

It appears to the little girl was searching for meaning in life, so

she went to the best authority she knew, her mother

“mummy, what is my purpose in Life?”

What will I be?

Her dear mother’s a response to such a profound question was, “Que sera sera”

 

The story continues in the following verses; she later fell in love and ask her her lover

“What does their future hold?” his answer was the same “Que sera sera

In the process of time; she has children of her own; they ask the same question.

I am certain you can guess the answer she gave; “Que sera sera”

We all want answers

Knowing your purpose gives meaning to your life; the why of being here, of being human is a question we must all answer. In my search for the answer to this question, I was lead to discover what I call.

My PURPOSE LADDER

As a ladder has steps or rounds; there are dimensions to our lives, which must be mastered to discover and live a purpose-filled life.

I employ you to stay with me over the coming weeks as we seek to discover your purpose together. Each level will be discussed as we climb the ladder of purpose.

I can attest to the fact that having discovered my purpose; I now start my days with meaning. I look forward to waking up in the morning. without crippling fear and anxiety. Life is no longer a mystery but purposeful planning, step by step round by round to achieve my goals, dreams, and vision.

You may be searching for meaning and purpose in your life; I have six components which we will delve into to arrive at your purpose in life.

RESILIENT – That’s who you are

Resilience is survival against all odds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As long as there is a will there is a way; no one can stop you except you let them.

 

Life is all about transition, like a caterpillar processing through phases of metachrosis; we as a people are called upon to rise, to develop o change from one stage to another. It is interesting to note change is usually not a welcome experience for most of us.

It is usually associated with negativity and loss.
Should we allow ourselves to embrace change it can be seen as a positive and rewarding necessity.
After all, if the change was not something positive we will never achieve most host what w have in life.
Examine, take a moment and reflect, some time of change to place for
you to change from a baby to a puberty teenage, young adult, adult, senior
You may say to me that’s growth.

Hummmm?

 

Oh yes I will agree with you; allow me to ask you this
Isn’t growth a series of change?

 

 

 

 

 

As, a people, a community, a nation, the world; the demand has been placed upon us to make some severe and unexpected adjustments. Changes that have been so unexpected and to most of us unthinkable. Covid-19 has changed us forever.

 

That’s where our strength of resilience is called into question.

We can not lay down and dies even if e want to. Death may surround you but you re left to pick up the pieces and carry on. There have been moments in my life where I longed for the earth to open up, just wide enough to swallow me up. Then I won’t have to worry anymore. I thank God for the beautiful girl he blessed me with. During those empty years of disappearing, they gave me a reason to go on.

It was there I found my strength in God, the will to read empowering books and magazines to draw strength to face each day.  My friend I want you to know you are not alone, others have made it and so can you.

CONCLUSION

RESILIENCE an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change, (Webster’s Dictionary) The definition I received when I came in connection with that word was the ability to bounce back from negative or adverse circumstances. There marked a turning point in my life, but that’s a story for another day. Today I want you to know that you can make it, regardless of how the odds are stacked against you. It can turn out for your good. Like that tree in the image above you can grow around your situation and come out smiling. I believe in you and your ability to bounce back from every punch life throws at you.

Embrace the change

Learn from it, grow from it

Allow it to bring you to maturity, you are resilient, no one can do it for you so stand up. take the hand of the almighty and walk on.
