Why are you here? I don’t mean ‘why are you here’ rather I mean why are you here, in this life, in this space in this moment? What is my purpose?

A question I imagine we’ve all asked ourselves six-half-dozen or another times. I’ve asked myself that question many times over the course of starting this blog, probably before then I’m sure. It’s a question I’m starting to realize may never truly be answered fully, space and time and life constantly shift the answer even when those rare occasions give you a glimpse of what you think it might be.

Have I given up on finding my purpose? No, absolutely not, and I think I’ve made a lot of introspective discoveries on this focused journey of mine. Do I think my blog’s purpose got derailed? Yes, I think so. I spent a bit too much time talking (and thinking) about things really impacting my life and not seeing forward into a bigger picture of how things that were happening could really shape my perspective in a positive way.

I need to recreate this blog, my voice, my writing. I know I’m going through a lot right now, that is not even a question, but I can’t let this crap negatively impact my “why am I here?” because, I have to say it has been doing just that lately. No, it has not been pretty, hence my hiatus and sporadic blogs this year. I was afraid for you to read my thoughts…

I have to remind myself, this space here allows me to express me in a way that’s honest and freeing. So my message is this… remember your purpose for your blog, why you started, and that you have something to say that each of us who follow you want to hear. Don’t be afraid to say whatever you want-it’s your space. I’m not gonna…

  1. We are all guilty of over-analyzing life. Some of us way past the extreme. It’s real simple. The chief aim of man is to glorify Holy God and enjoy Him forever. “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31. Taking from, or adding to, God’s stated purpose for man makes man’s attempt to define purpose worldly and not biblical or eternal.

    1. I’ve been faithful in my walk with God these last weeks. I spent a good deal of time feeling to guilty to talk to Him but I submitted finally. I don’t know if that’s the right word to use but I guess I got ‘over myself’ and stopped trying to control it on my own.
