“The purpose of your life is far greater than your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness. It is far greater than your family, your career, or even your wildest dreams and happiness. If you want to know why you were placed on this planet, you must begin with God. You were born by His purpose and for His purpose…you cannot arrive at your life’s purpose by starting with a focus on yourself. You must begin with God your Creator. You exist only because God wills that you exist. You were made by God and for God-and until you understand that, life will never make sense.
It is only¬† in God that we discover our origin, our identity, our meaning, our purpose, our significance and our identity. Every other path leads to a dead end… Life is about letting God use you for His purposes, not your using Him for your own purpose… God is not just the starting point of your life; He is the source of it… His purpose for your life predates your conception. He planned it before you existed, without your input! You may choose your career, your spouse, your hobbies, and many other parts of your life, but you don’t get to choose your purpose.
The purpose of you life fits into a much larger, cosmic purpose that God has designed for eternity.”
The Purpose¬†Driven Life by Rick Warren.
