Rick Warren’s best selling book: The Purpose Driven Life is a great 40 day devotional study. Now I know this book has been out for years, and I have had it for quite some time, I have yet to make it thru to the full 40 days. But hey no time like the present.
Day 1 speaks about where to look in finding out not only your purpose in life, but simply who you are. One thing I have learned on my journey with Christ is that, in order to know my purpose I must first know my Creator, He in turn will tell me His purpose for creating me. Simply put, it’s not about me! It’s about His purpose for creating me.
“The purpose of your life is far greater than your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, your career, or even your happiness. It’s far greater than your family or even your wildest dreams and ambitions. 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.”-Rick Warren
