My Purpose

Im in my late 20s and my purpose is to live for God.

Of all the goals Ive achieved nothing is more satisfying then living for God.

He completes me and gives me reason to live.

I think people who have no purpose in life say this as a desperate excuse to make up for the fact that they don't have one.

I am also a Christian but like American63, how do you know your purpose? I moved to a kind of smallish town seven years ago for a job that I was laid off from in November. I was and still am reeling from their decision. The job should have been "safe" for as long as I wanted it. I know a lot of people in this town now it seems but I'm not good friends with but a very few, and I don't have family here. The chances of getting another job here that pays as well are low and I'm having trouble motivating self-employment. I'd move somewhere if I had a good reason to but I question everything. My body is not allowing me to enjoy the sports and fitness that used to keep me going. I need a big, fat "why" just to get out of bed in the morning. I think a lot about why we don't just skip the earthly living part if a. God gives us desires, that b. God doesn't grant, and we're supposed to just accept it? And why does He grant His blessings to some and not others? Just loving God is supposed to meet our basic needs? I try to trust in Him but I've felt let down so many times I wonder why I was created at all.

I know we are supposed to live for God so we can be in heaven with him and Jesus...but I am still confused as to what my role on earth is? there has to be some earthly purpose, not to just worship God.If all of our purpose was just to worship God, then why are we even on earth? Why don't we just skip the whole earthly life and go live with God.we can't just walk around all day worshiping God.<br />
How do you find out what else you are supposed to be doing on earth?

I am 21 years old. I have been a very active church member especially to the Young People's organization. But right now, my spiritual relationship with God is being to die down. =(

it's good..
