Your heart will always chase and run after it passions. The heart searches for constant satisfaction and fulfillment.
Like I said in my previous post, Every time you wish for a thing, it’s because your heart desires it. And when those desires finally become a reality, you feel excited. As a being, we are naturally looking for maximum satisfaction.
This will lead us to defining our purpose because if you know why you exist, why you are here and why you are still breathing, finding your satisfaction won’t be difficult. If you understand your heart and its longings, you will know your purpose for living. Remember, your satisfaction is derived from fulfilling your heart desires.
So, my point is, you get satisfaction when you get what you want or what you are chasing or what you longed for. The question, then, is what are you living for? Why are you still here? Why do you keep doing what you do? If you can answer these questions, you may be able to find fulfillment.
I will walk through examples to help resonate this point. At the dawn of each day, the first thing is to get up and get out to work or do something that resides in your heart. This may be to go to work, complete a project, meet for the conference, call a friend, etc. Once your heart finds its desires, your purpose works to align with it to bring you satisfaction.
The reason you do a thing is because it’s been in your heart over a period of time. Search your heart and your desires will not be too far-fetched.
The longings of your heart ( what you really wish or desire) is your purpose for living.
If your purpose is to make the world a better place, the solution is to find the little you can do to make this a reality. Your purpose may be to help sick people, help young children, assist a manager on a project, complete a task, find the cure to a killer disease, support your community, care for the needy, write good stories for others to read, raise godly kids, serve in your church or community, whatever it is, as long as your purpose is well defined, your heart will work to bring this to satisfaction by acting as your driving force.
Therefore, search your heart and you will find your purpose for living.
As I said, your purpose can be just raising your kids in a godly and acceptable manner while a purpose can also be to lead a country where people of all diverse backgrounds have equal opportunity and right to all basic supports, and people living happily within a viable society.
Whatever it is, your purpose is within your heart and will work to bring your purpose to reality.
