In between post: What is your purpose in life?

 

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.

??? What is your purpose in life???

??? What are you living for???

    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
