Purpose Driven Life

Reading this caption i'm sure you'll assume this is going to be a post on talk, talk, talk....... and more talk on how we all can make the best of our short trip here on earth.

Sorry to disappoint you a little. Actually used that title cos i'm presently taking a 40-day journey  trying to discover my purpose here on earth. May give a short review at the end of my journey though.

My doctrine makes me believe God made us to know him, love him, serve him, in this world and to be happy with him forever in the next. Y'all may be lucky to have discovered  your purpose on earth, i envy you if you have. I've started this kinda journey a couple of times in the past. First time was when i turned 21. Got this book from my elder sis *my family is a little obsessed with reading*. The title of the book is "A Purpose Driven Life" by Rick Warren. Its focus is on God's plan for your life. Its not like the usual self help book (some of those those can be very good too) that suggests that people should look within at their own desires and dreams. Its emphasis is in understanding God's purpose in creating us.  My second journey with this book was about some years ago. Unfortunately, i'll start the book with high hopes planning to be a better person but i don't get to complete it. Procrastination comes knocking, i skip a couple of days and then it gets difficult to complete it. Oftentimes, i get distracted with one thing or the other. I'm perfect at\making valid excuses but no excuse this time will stop me.



 I guess most of y'all may have read this book in the past, its a great bestselling book *definitely worth reading*. Not the conventional book that you'll be done with in a couple of hours or few days with little message left with you. Its a book that  seems like  a journey of discovery.

It is paradoxical that we all want to make heaven and nobody want to consider death. Earth is not our final destination, our final abode is with our creator and presently planning to live each day as if it'll be my very last. I'll advice all of us to do same, cause we don't know the exact time when it'll come calling (now that
sounds like a small sermon).

Enough of serious serious talk.

I'm always scared of the internet and revealing myself here but will share a couple of my pictures today. Just for fun. Enjoy.....

  4. I totally feel you about retreating and discovering your purpose. This is very common when you are about to make a big decision or take a big step in life. I have gone that road before, *heck I am still on that road*. I wish you the very best on your journey.

    Beautiful pictures
