I just want to write something in between my goal “series” cause it really struck me today.
I got the sad news today in the morning that my former neighbour died. He was only 21 years old. As far as it looks his family didn’t care about him – they are not interested in him – they don’t want to pay for the funeral. When I read my emails in the morning I got so sad and I cried. I cried because I felt for this young guy and also for other young people who don’t have or never had a loving family. I thought: What have I done to help him, to show him love? Sometimes I was sitting in front of my house and he came home from work. We usually talked a lot about different things. He was very talkative and friendly.
I am so thankful that I have a loving and supporting family. I really want to encourage young people who don’t have such a loving environment. I want to spend time with them, show them love, help them to find their purpose in life. This is also one reason why I did my certificate in life coaching. I am still thinking about it, how I could best use it to help others finding their potential and purpose in life.
I have a book called “The purpose driven life” by Rick Warren. He sais, that so many people live without hope in life. I really believe this from my heart what he believes: that only a life with Jesus Christ can bring meaning, purpose and significance in your life.
He mentiones that many people live with fear, regrets, bitterness and guilt. But there is good news: you can enter into a relationship with God through an attitude of trust in Jesus Christ. If you trust him with your life, you get forgiveness for your past, a purpose for living in your present, and a home in heaven in the future.
What a good news!
I wish that everybody could believe this good news. In the morning when I got this sad news I really thought about this: I want to make more of an effort to tell others what the good news is. I know that some won’t accept it and won’t believe it. But this shouldn’t keep me from telling the good news.

Oh so sad news Tabea, you truely have a heart for God and to help others. Good questions you ask… you got me thinking !
@Amira: Thank you Amira!
Very well spoken. I also came from a broken family, and had a very troubled childhood. Searching for meaning and purpose in life led me to the source that is pure unconditional love……Christ
