So I thought it would be brave to write about something as illusive as purpose.
My observation is that most people, if not everyone, wants to know why they exist. Why do we go to work? Why do we want to be accomplished? Aren’t these questions directly connected to the foundational one, “Why am I here?”
Something I’ve come to realize is that the best way to answer the above question, is to change the question. “Why am I here?” should rather be “Who put me here?” That’s what being on earth is all about. Figuring out who is responsible for you being here. In my case it is the triune God of the Bible. So I look to Him to answer me, instruct me and lead me in my reason for being on earth.
It might not seem very revelatory to most, but it is SO satisfying when we understand that most answers we desire lies outside of ourselves.
My family and I are happy to rest in the sovereignty of Jesus as He answers, instructs and leads us into the new chapter awaiting us in the nations. He does this through family, friends, leaders and of course His word and Spirit. He continually clarifies our purposes as a family.
Wow! He is able. He lacks nothing. Especially in regard to the wisdom and power that He guides us with.
Seek the Lord and you will find Him!
Since our return to the Boland the Lord has provided over and above our expectation. In such a way that we have reached the 75℅ mark. He is faithful and SO generous! For more detail on what we are still trsuting for before our departure,please visit our Hebrews 11:1 page.
As always. Thank you to everyone that forms part of our BandofBeukes and supports us so faithfully and generously.
