“I recently stumbled onto a letter I had written to myself when I was 21 years old. It was heartwarming to see that even then, my earnest desire was to walk in God’s purpose and plan for my life. I had written that “I would rather not live than live outside of God’s will, purpose and plan for my life” and I meant it with all my heart.
My life at 21 was filled with days when I didn’t even know what God had planned for me but still, I got a hold of the truth that I was made to fulfill a specific purpose on earth and I simply refused to let go of that truth. I was having a conversation with a friend about “purpose” when the true meaning of the name of this book – “Steps to Walking in Purpose” dawned on me.
Our walk in purpose takes place exactly the way the name of this book says that it does. We only gradually ease into all that God has for us to do on earth. We fulfill our purpose in life in steps; each step leading onto the next. . .
. . . There will be days of knowing the details of your purpose but not being able to walk in them because the vision’s appointed time is not yet at hand. And there will be days of just stepping into the step that’s right in front of you without knowing that there are bigger steps that lie beyond that step. No one ever arrives at fulfilling purpose in the blink of an eye. Fulfilling purpose will take constant alignment with God’s will for your life. This is the reason why you can never fulfill purpose without a close relationship with the one who created you with a purpose to fulfill on earth.” – Excerpt from 10 Steps to Walking In Purpose.
Gosh! Isn’t that an awesome introduction I just gave you? Sorry for cutting you short of it but that was just an appetiser! It’s just to let you know this book is not one you would want to forego!
As I mentioned yesterday, Frances Okoro is the great lady who wrote Chastity for Men, in conjunction with other people, sharing their testimonies and how they overcame certain things. You can get info about it here. If you read that book, you would love her current book; 10 Steps to Walking In Purpose.
I personally learnt a lot of things when reading this book and it has got me thinking about my life and what I’m doing. This book would make you question if you are where God wants you to be? Or if you’re just working out your own path?
“The only reason why we sometimes feel useless is because we lack knowledge in this regard or have refused to fix our minds on the truth that God has created us all to fill a niche and provide solutions to issues that we have been uniquely crafted to resolve.” – Excerpt from 10 Steps to Walking In Purpose
