How to Discover Your Life Purpose in 60 seconds

I have read a bunch of Destiny Discovery, Life Purpose Discovery, and God’s Will for your life Discovery books over the years and they seem to talk about a lot of things that are really good to focus on and think about, for instance:

I just planned a whole retreat for my students that was called Discover Your Destiny and we worked with students on figuring out what their purpose in life is and what God created them for. All of these things are great and can help us figure out the specific purpose and cause that God has created us for. The good works that God has prepared in advance for us to do according to Ephesians 2:10.

Sometimes though, it can be a little overwhelming. Have you ever felt like there was just too much to think about when it comes to discovering your destiny or life purpose? You start to wade through all these different categories and you come out the back side almost as confused as you went in, maybe even more so.

If that is the case for you, you might want to just try this simple little exercise that can cut through all the clutter for you and help you figure out why you are walking planet Earth.

Complete the phrase:

My life purpose is to Glorify God by _____________ ING ____________ WHO/WHAT

(i.e. Fixing Cars, Leading Worship, Strengthening Leaders, Raising Godly Children,) You get the idea. You might want to wordsmith it a little when you are done so that it speaks to your soul more deeply or even add some clarifying remarks to bring it to and even greater focal point. We know that God has us on this earth to bring him glory but sometimes figure out the specific way that he wants us to do that is a little tricky. I

For many of you this question will help cut through the clutter in your brain and help you to figure out exactly what you are about. Hope it helps you in the process.

I learned this phrase from my friend Stephen Blandino years ago and it has stuck with me ever since. When I fulfill the Destiny that God has for me it will be bring God the most glory, most significantly advance the Kingdom of God and leave me the most fulfilled.
