Excerpt

Dear Graduate:

Congratulations! You have finally made it! The papers are finished, the tests have been taken, and you are now a graduate. You’re closing the chapter on one part of your life and beginning to write a new one. You’re excited and hopeful, scared and unsure, all at the same time. Perhaps you’re asking, “Where do I go from here? What is my purpose in life?” 

In this book, made especially for you, you’ll discover that no matter who you are or where you live, God has five special purposes for your life. As you seek to fulfill them, everything else will fall into place.

God has great and wonderful plans for you. So, sit back, relax, and let him speak to your soul as you read. May God open your eyes so that you can see your unique purpose in this life.

What on Earth Am I Here For?

“Why do I exist?” 

“Why am I here?” 

“What is my purpose?”

These are the most fundamental questions you can ask in life. Have you ever asked these questions, wondering where to turn for the answer?

Contrary to what many popular books, movies, and seminars tell you, you won’t discover your life’s meaning by looking within yourself. You didn’t create yourself, so there is no way you can tell yourself what you were created for! You must begin with God, your Creator. It is only in God that we discover our origin, our identity, our meaning, our purpose, our significance, and our destiny.

It is God who directs the lives of his creatures;

everyone’s life is in his power.

Job 12:10 TEV

It All Starts With God

The exciting truth is that God has never created anything without a purpose. Colossians 1:16 says: “For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, . everything got started in God and finds its purpose in him” (The Message). The very fact that you’re alive means God has a purpose for your life!

You know me inside and out, God,

you know every bone in my body;

You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,

how I was sculpted from nothing into something.

Psalm 139:15 The Message

And you weren’t created for just one purpose. You were created for five special reasons that are explained in God’s Word. As you start this new chapter in your life, may you come to understand God’s wonderful plan for you and find answers to life’s most important questions.

It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.

Ephesians 1:11 The Message
