Do you know your purpose here on earth? I am still confused why God made me here on earth.. I don't know from all the millions of babies out there. Why did he create me? Some people out there are successful in life and help other people like the poor ones. But helping the poor people is not my thing. How would I know that it is my purpose in life? Do you or Did you find your purpose here on earth? please tell me your experience if you have any?? Thanks for reading mylotters

Oh my, my first thought when I read this comment was Satan. Satan does everything in his power to prevent us from becoming close to God. Reading the Bible is one way we become close...

Finding our purpose in this life is quite a big question in our heads. We never really know our purpose. It is a never-ending inquiry simply because we do not exist for a single purpose. In fact, we exist for different manifold purposes in this life. For us to realize our purpose/purposes, we need to appreciate even the minute details that have happened in our lives and appreciating what are those that make us happy and in the same way share that happiness to others. Today, we may become teachers;tomorrow we become nurses; the next day we become the Good Samaritan and so on.... Simply saying, to define our purpose is to live each day to the fullest and making sure that no single day passes by without acts of virtues and good deeds.At the end of the day, we realize we have served our life for a purpose. Happy mylotting!

He made you so that you could live! You are here and you are not going anywhere for sometime, I guess, so I suggest you make good use of your life and do something you really want to do! Go after what makes you feel good and don't be afraid!

Hi nehmer! Others may show and guide. But ultimately you have to find it yourself. Don't worry if helping the poor is not your thing. Life is not just about that. But why the hurry man? Great if you have thought about it anyway. To some a search may take a lifetime. It has never been easier for me to decide what I want to do now than I ever had many years back. Anyway, have you tried listening to your heart? When you thought you have managed to list all down and realized something is just not quite right then you are a little closer to listening to your heart. And as you listen more you'll get a little closer to what you are looking for. I wish you all the luck in the world!

Finding outr purpose on earth can be a trial. Some of us learn our purpose early in life. For others the purpose can remain unknown for years. Searching for our purpose is just the stepping stones of life.

As they all say, "No one can play the role I have in this one time life on earth as great as I could". Whatever my purpose is, even if I won't find out what exactly it is, I'll continue to live the best way I could.

Purpose of my life is to make this world a better place to live, so that people may live in it with peace and harmony. We all must leave a kind of legacy so that the coming generation may inherit this world in a better form than the one we had received. God expect me to give peace of mind to others. He expect me to fill the life of others with happiness. The people living after me must remember me as a kindly and a humane person.

You're the only one who can answer that nehmer... Everyone has a purpose in life... You won't know it now for sure but someday, somehow you will realize it... It is understandable that you are here for your family but aside from that, maybe you have a purpose to someone you don't know... We live for the people around us... I don't know what is my purpose here on earth... I'll never know... Maybe, I already found my purpose... But I still haven't realize it...

At first, I do not have a purpose in life. I question God and my mother why I exist when I fact, I had done nothing but trouble. Until I got married and have kids, then I found out I am happy. My family makes me happy, I can finally say I am contented with life even if we do not have much. You too can find your own purpose, what makes you happy? Probably you have a hidden talent or you have a skill that is unique, try to cultivate that and you may find that you have served your purpose. Don't forget to pray for guidance.

for me it is really hard to find for our purpose here on earth, but we may realize it as we move on on life, life is full of trials and i think through trials and challenges we can find our true purpose

I am also asking about that if what is my purpose here on earth. Is it that so I will be the one to pay the sins of my parents of what they did during their childhood? To be an absorber so that if ever they are angry that can't actually expressed their hatred to the direct person involve but to me because I am just too nice to them? Oh well I must stop ranting but I must think of the positive side I am here on earth. It can be a reason that they must see someone that is really a strong woman who can actually fight for what is right. A woman that would not allow herself to be oppressed by a man or anyone that are doing injustices. A woman who would really think of whom I should trust or not. I still have this power of will to do what I really want and to follow my dreams. Right now I am not still successful on my job but I am still optimistic enough for being successful on my right path.

Yes Neh, purpose of my birth on this living planet Earth is to make this world a better place of living with non-violence, peace and harmony. We all must leave a kind of legacy so that the coming generation may inherit this world in a better form than that we had received from our parents! God's expectations for me is to live and let others live as well as give peace of mind to others! An important purpose of my life is to fill the life of others with cheerfulness and happiness. The purpose must be to realise spirituality in everyday life! Thanks for his philosophical discussion and have real solution in life!!

It took me a while to figure out my purpose on earth. but i think mine was to get married and have children who would grow up and be some body important. So maybe I didn't have any important job except to raise my children but without me they wouldn't be here to be who they are today.It might take you a lifetime to figure out what your purpose is. but you will eventually.

My purpose on this earth i only discovered a few years ago when i went to nursing school. I am now working as a nurse and i can honestly say i have never felt so happy and fulfilled. It has made me happier all round and i feel that when at work i can really make a difference and touch the lives of other people. This happiness carries over into my private life too xx
