4 Questions to Help You Find Your Purpose

/ Purpose /


The two most important days in your life are the day you were born…and the day you find out why. Mark Twain  

Knowing why we exist and taking steps to live that out makes all the difference in living and giving for God’s glory.

Think through the following questions as you consider how God uniquely designed you.  It’s also a good idea to share these questions with your family or friends. Often their observations of you are even clearer than how you see yourself.

1. What has always been true about you?
2. What are you doing when you experience moments that energize you and you lose all track of time?
3. What do others say you do for them?
4. What do you most want for others?

You can also use this online tool to help you define your two-word purpose. 

Taking the time to reflect on our unique purpose enables us to live more fully into who God created us to be.
