Have you ever wondered, what is your real pupose in this earth? Do you feel and think that you have mission to accomplished? Why did God gave you life? Are you on the right path? Are you making the right decisions? These are some of the questions that sometimes running on my mind... Sometimes I feel that my life is empty and dull... No colors and same old routine everyday... The only thing that is making my life worthy is that I am taking good care of my baby... My baby needs me and that's what keeps me going. My real purpose is still unknown to me... What about you? Do you think you are doing you mission and on the right track???

While taking care of our family can bring us much joy, many of us have a deep hunger to be part of something bigger also. How can we know what else God wants us to do? I would suggest spending about one half hour a day reading God's word the Bible. Please don't say that you don't have the time. God gives us 24 hours each day, can we not give him back some time to know him better? Notice the reward of getting to know God better and of doing his will. John 17:3 (New International Version) 3Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

Here is a simple recipe that has helped many. Start by praying to God letting him know your situation and concerns. 1 Peter 5:6-7 (New International Version) 6Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 7Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. Then start a program of daily Bible reading. Joshua 1:8 (New International Version) 8 Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Then look for people in your area who love God and can help you with your questions. We all need encouragement and so finding people like that can help us greatly in these difficult times. I pray that God will help you to deal with whatever you are going through. Isaiah 41:10 (New International Version) 10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

to be honest.. i never thought of my purpose.. maybe god put us in this earth to make it a better place.. coz according to my mom and my sister, their life was pretty boring since my dad and my bro are out.. and they were kind of hoping that someone would make them smile.. and one day my mom got pregnant.. and it was meeee.. my dad described it to be the happiest moment of my mom and my sister when i was born.. since they didnt have a baby back then and all they had were the housekeepers and themselves.. and now i dont know what im supposed to do.. i just do whats right i guess we dont really have a purpose.. god just wants us to be happy and do whats right.. have a nice day.. [i]..swollen minds and spoken lies.. ..you'll never hear their silent cries..[/i] - hush

Babies are really the fun starter - the trigerring device for happy moments! I sure hope that it stays that way forever even how old you are now... If we do what is right 95% you will be happy, surely there will be trials but of course in the end we will harvest what we have planted. Have a nice day hush!
