What On Earth Am I Here For?

August 28, 2009

“Many plans are in a man’s heart, but the counsel of the Lord will stand.” – Proverbs 19:21

What on earth am I here for?

Have you ever asked yourself that question? Rich Warren asks that question in The Purpose Driven Life.

Are you clear on your life purpose? Can you write it down?

It seems the average American thinks life is all about working hard, raising a family, doing your best, making enough money to retire (the earlier the better), and then finally doing what you want to do when you want to do it. But by mid-life, this philosophy makes a person cry, “What on earth am I here for?” It’s like slowly drowning in an ocean of emptiness.

But I have good news. We can know what on earth we’re here for. It begins when we get to know our Creator through the person of Christ. Our Creator, God, loves us and has a purpose for our life. And our role is to trust Him and obey Him through His written word.

So don’t waste your life. Get to know your Creator personally. I promise you’ll become clear about what on earth you’re here for.
