One of my most inspirational stories is that of Nick Vujicic born without arms and legs determined to find the purpose for his life. Against his tremendous challenges, he has become an international motivational speaker, who founded his own company and speaks about his ridiculously good life which has no Limits. He says, “recognizing your purpose means everything. I assure you that you too have something to contribute. You may not see it now, but you would not be on this planet if that were not true. I know for certain that God does not make mistakes, but he does make miracles. I am one. You are too.’ (Life Without Limits)
A seventeenth-century monk, who lived in France, saw his work for God as serving in the kitchen. He would stop his work and praise God for the privilege of knowing Him and serving Him in this way. He is still serving God through his book ‘Practicing the Presence of God.’
Today, be faithful in small things. Mother Teresa says, “No work is small when done with great love.” Your greatest purpose for living is to serve God. He has work for you to do. The scripture says, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge, nor wisdom.” Ecclesiastes 9:10
“We are God’s workmanship (masterpiece) created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God has prepared (chosen) for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:10)
Yahweh, I thank you that my life has a purpose. Father, I want to live my life for your glory. God, I’m willing and available to serve you no matter the consequences. In Christ’s Name Amen.
