My purpose? What purpose?

Do you sometimes feel like all the “Rah, Rah” Ziz, Boom, Ba” kind of sermon you hear or meme you read is just a bunch of hooey?

Sometimes do you just want people to quit the cheerleading? I mean it all sounds a bit much after a while, don’t you think?

There are times I just don’t want to think about my purpose. It’s all too overwhelming.

Sometimes I just want to pamper myself and my self-indulgent habits. I just want it (life) to quit being about purpose and goals and what I should or should not be doing. I just want to do what I want to do.

Or do I?

Yep. Sometimes I do.

And sometimes I do just that, do what I want to do.

But I think if we don’t believe we have a purpose,, what’s the point? The truth is sometimes it’s hard to believe we have a unique purpose. However, we don’t find it hard to believe other people do, however.

We don’t have a problem believing a Bill Gates has a purpose. We don’t have problem believing a famous pastor with a huge congregation has a purpose. How about an author with lots of published books? Someone with great influence? But what about us in our little corner of the world?

I struggle with this myself. I struggle with this blog. There are so many bloggers out there with beautifully designed blogs. For a long time, I tried to be one of those. I worked hard on my decorating pictures. The DIY projects. I tried to keep up.

But these other bloggers have one huge advantage over me. They take beautiful pictures. They have the cameras and the photo lens…I don’t. And not because I can’t. I certainly can. I’ve toyed with buying the right camera, and accessories.

But that’s not my purpose.

My blog was started for one main purpose, to share my faith and to speak to the subject of mental health, primarily depression and anxiety. I need to get back to that.

So I’m rethinking how to come back to where I began. How often to post. I want to do a better job of scheduling and planning.

My purpose?

To encourage you. To share my faith To share my experience with depression and all I’ve learned over the years. That is the purpose for all of us.

To be authentic.

To be honest.

To be genuine.

To live fearlessly.

To live openly.

I’m glad I’m back to my purpose. I think most of us have to do some digging sometimes to figure it out.

I’m looking forward to where God is leading for this next year.

And I hope you are, too.

God bless and have a great day.
