“What on earth am I here for?”, Dan said to himself”

A little backstory . . .

Dan had all he had ever dreamt of as a child. He was a successful photographer and CEO of Dee Photography. He loved to capture beautiful moments and preserve them regardless of time. He had cars, houses, workers and all the good stuff. He was literally living the life. Dan grew up in a Christian home so had a knowledge of GOD. He never really devoted his life to Him though. He lived a seemingly fulfilled life but was he really fulfilled? He sought for something deeper than he knew. There was a void in his heart that all the money, cars and success just didn’t fill. He needed to know what he was on earth for . . .

The LORD has made everything for its own purpose, Even the wicked [according to their role] for the day of evil.”

PROV. 16:4 AMP

You have a purpose!’, ‘Your life has a meaning!’, ‘You have a destiny!’ ‘Dare to be different!’ These and more have been said over and over. What really is this purpose everyone speaks of?

Purpose is simply the reason you were created. The very problem God saw and said, “There she is! There he is! The solution to this and that problem.” Purpose gives your life a meaning.

I used to wonder what I live for
Till I found out what I was here for
I found a reason I’m alive for
I’m only here to help the people turn their lights on . . .


Like Lecrae in his song, Illuminate, he was lost because he didn’t know why he was living. His life made sense when he discovered it though.

Many plans are in a man’s mind, But it is the Lord’s purpose for him that will stand (be carried out).”

PROV. 19:21 AMP

How do I find purpose?

Let me share some practical ways to discovering purpose with you:

  • Find GOD and Build a relationship with Him : So this is how it goes:

God is a Master Artist. He is the greatest, even greater than Leonardo da Vinci or Bob Ross and He has a plan for your life. You are an artwork who is supposed to watch as he reveals to you bit by bit, the big picture.

“For we are His workmanship (His own master work, a work of art). created in Christ Jesus reborn from above – spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used) for good works, which God prepared (for us) beforehand (taking paths which He set), so that we would walk in them living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us).”

EPH. 2:10 AMP

Just like a manufacturer dictates what a product’s use is, so does GOD reveal our purpose to us. Apart from Him, you can only guess and get it wrong. Like Dan, there is GOD-shaped hole that all the money and cars you have won’t fill. The hole can only be filled by GOD.

  • Discover your passion : your passions are those things you do that excite you. Your passion could be Art, Health or Music so, identify them. Identify those things you love doing and groom them.
  • Figure out your gifts and abilities: you are unique and God in turn gave you unique gifts and abilities. He gave you these things not just for your use but to reach out to others. Honestly examine them. Ask people too then, compare with activities people often ask for your help with. (Check Matt. 25:14-29 AMP)
  • Examine your experiences and the lessons learned from them : A famous quote goes thus, ‘Experience is the best teacher, and the worst experiences teach the best lessons.‘ Well, this is very true. Many of the people making great impact today are products of a myriad of experiences. The good, the bad and the ugly, all make up something beautiful eventually. Don’t discard any of your experiences.

Don’t forget that God is the One with the plan and should be consulted. Every other thing serves as a pointer to purpose.

For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you, says the LORD, plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

JER. 29:11 AMP

You’re probably wondering, “how do I know that I am going to fulfill purpose?” As long as you walk with the Holy Spirit, He will guide your steps. If for some reason, you go off the trail, He will get you back on track.

Man’s steps are ordered and ordained by the Lord. How then can a man [fully] understand his way?

PROV. 20:24 AMP

You’re also probably wondering, “what if I make a mistake?” Well, God still chose you despite seeing all the mistakes you will ever make. Your silly mistakes are not an issue for Him.

Do you know what happens when The Creator and His creation work together? History is made! A problem is solved! There is great impact!

In essence dear one, dare to make your life count by living out God’s plan for your life.

Mind you, don’t get so obsessed with finding or discovering purpose that you miss out on every step. Sometimes, the destination is in the journey.


I know you have been inspired. Please share this with all your friends. Every single one of them needs to see it. WHAT IS PURPOSE TO YOU ? WHAT OTHER WAYS CAN YOU DISCOVER PURPOSE ? Do let me know in the comment section. Don’t forget to leave a comment too as I always love to hear from you.

    Thanks for this message dear 😁

    What i’d say is, “When the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable”. A lot are just living, abusing the purpose of their existence. May God help all of us to discover this on time and succeed.

    To discover ones purpose in life, one need to, first of all, get along with God who is our maker. Amos 3:3
    We were created for a purpose and need to know that purpose. One need to ask Him to reveal this purpose to us . This can be by prayer and fasting ,then creating time to meditate and listen so we can hear Him for directions and leading.
    He can reveal our purpose in life through any means that best suit Him, so all we need to do is meditate and concentrate.
    “Until purpose is discovered, our best is not yet out”.
    Thanks Abba’s Girl. 💕

    God created all people and he loves them. He made people to worship him and to enjoy a relationship with him forever. God wants us to love him – and each other. In the Bible books, Mark and Luke, Jesus Christ was asked what were the most important things a person should do. He replied, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength…(and) love your neighbour as yourself’. Has a human being we must take this as our first purpose on earth.

    “The destination is the Journey”, I felt that! One thing I’ve come to learn about finding purpose is that you first have to find God, that way he will hand you the blueprint of your purpose and that in bits so you can keep trusting him. Inspiring write up, Thank you! ❤️

      Thanks for sharing sis
      The concluding part about not getting obsessed with finding purpose and missing out on the steps is very important.
      *Take time to ask yourself,”what is God teaching me”
      *Trust the process; The Almighty God is the master planner, he already knows the end from the beginning.
      *While trying to find our purpose we should add value to ourselves (Take that course,Read books). No knowledge is lost.



    The purpose of a man and the man are one. Any attempt to separate from the other results into a chaos. Like the words of Amos 3:3. An individual and his/her purpose can only walk together if they agree together. As such let’s discover that purpose we were made for and AGREE with it.

    Thanks GG for this wonderful piece 🥰❤️
