Hey friend! How are you doing?

Today, going through my notes, I found a really interesting exercise that can helps us to take the right direction and find what we are called to do in our lives!

I’ll share here some tips/insights that, I hope, will direct you if you are struggling with this question: What should I be doing with my life?!

Our life’s purpose should define how we spend our time, money and all our efforts. We need to look at it as an investiment, to reap good fruits along the way!

So, take some time to reflect about it and write down some of the signs that points to your main purpose in life or the “Permanent central idea” (In another words: What makes my heart beat faster?!)

Here are some of the signs you may consider to find your “calling”:

-Temper (Strengths and weaknesses of your temper!). You have specific characteristics and abilities that will help you to fulfill your purpose!

-Skills: What do you love to do and also is good at?! That can be a good sign, but also involves things you’d love to do, but are too afraid to start doing!(skills you should develop…)

-Family challenges: What are the challenges you had to face(and overcome) in your family relationships? ( That could be used to help others to be encouraged).

A lot of us have already experienced pain, rejection or lost in our family relationships! Not only victory over a problem, but also the struggles of life, can connect us to other people. People that we can help and also be inspired by! We are here to learn and to teach others.

-Your life story: What are your most difficult experiences? Things that made you stronger and more mature in the process? What do you have learned in your daily battles, that can help people around you, inspiring them to have hope and faith in their own situation?!

God uses our battles to build perseverance and strength inside of us!It also will be a tool to reach our goals and help those around us!

-What do you could do for the rest of your life without being paid? What wakes a deep satisfaction in you?! We all have some activity, some hobby or professional skill that could be used as a tool to build a better life to others and also spread the Word of God! (As for me I can say that writting is one of my passions since I can remember! That makes me feel happy and useful!)

What are some tasks and challenges that makes you feel inspired, energized and fulfilled? That is a good sign for your purpose! It is not the whole answer, but it’s definetely a good tip about the direction you should be taken in your life’s decisions!

I encourage you to make a list of those things and think deeply about it: Am I going into the right direction? Am I investing in something that I really loves and also impacts others in a good way?! Something that will last?!

It is not an easy or quick task, I know. Maybe you are in a season, righ now, where those questions seems pointless, because you don’t see a way through it. But don’t stop dreaming about it, ok?!

Don’t be so hard on yourself! You can dream and, at the same time, start to plant some small seeds now, that will bring good fruits for you in the future!

It is important to acknolegde your dreams and that they matter! Even in times when it seems impossible! I also have my own share of “impossible dreams”.

However, I really love to write them down and read it, every time I need to remember that it’s not the end of the line. God is faithfull and He’ll help me accomplish them! No matter how long it takes.

I know that, if you trust in God and put all your hope in Him, you’ll not be disappointed!

Share your thoughts and dreams with Him and He will plant a good amount of hope and strength in your heart, so you can keep pursuing it, without giving up!

Is not Ephraim my dear son, the child in whom I delight? Though I often speak against him, I still remember him. Therefore my heart yearns for him; I have great compassion for him,” declares the Lord.”
