We often hear on what to do and what not to do, but in this beautiful thing called life, I am always thirsting for someone to show me how to do it.
Because of that, I am a student at heart and I can’t help but fill in the gap that I have suffered from and teach what I have learned. I like to actually spell out to others how to do things. So enjoy these 3 practical steps that I took / am taking on seeking out my God given purpose. Lets dive in!
1. Detour ahead! Take the first Exit you See.
If we want to start living out the original intent for our lives and no longer pervert our lives, we have to exit anything that was designed to steal our purpose. This could be a variety of things:
- a job
- intoxication, drugs alcohol etc
- relationships , romantic or platonic
- music and tv shows
- laziness and procrastination..just to name a few
The biggest purpose stealer in my life was boys/ relationships, 10 years worth ! I know for a fact that this has been the most common, if not the #1 purpose stealer for us young women. I was in a relationship for all the wrong reasons. I wasn’t seeking God as much as I was suppose to because that relationship became my god in a sense and it hindered my communication with God.
Of course society teaches us to find a man before anything else and that life doesn’t begin until we get booed up. But that pathway has proven to be a trap, falling into sex and sin and itself becoming an idol in our lives to worship instead of God. It really doesn’t make much sense to try to link up with another human being first, trying to figure out who they are when we don’t even know who we are or why we are created in the first place. So when we are out of order like that, we begin to fill those voids with that man when it was God who was suppose to fill it. It causes us to get hooked on the idea and feeling of relationships like a dope fiend, making it that much harder to walk away. There has to come a time in our lives when we say to the enemy, ” enough is enough”! Yes, you better believe he is strategic at putting roadblocks in our pathway to try to delay our purpose from manifesting.
