How can I find my purpose?

Dear God,

I am so busy—sometimes downright frenzied. At the end of another frantic day, I fall into bed and ask myself, What did I do today? Did I make a difference? My life seems to lack a compelling purpose, a purpose worthy of my being created in your image. This aimlessness can lead me to apathy or even despair. This is not where I want to be, Lord. I believe that you have a purpose for my life. You have given me spiritual gifts, and you want me to use them to contribute to those around me. You call me to partner with you in your great redemptive plan for the world. What a privilege! May this call fuel my energy and ignite my dreams. As I use my gifts to help you fulfill this purpose, may I grow in my understanding of what is truly important for me to accomplish each day. Renew my work with a deeper sense of meaning so that I may labor for your wholeheartedly.


So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.

1 Corinthians 15:58, NLT
