Purpose is NOT what you do...
At the end of my 20s, I'm just entering my "career," and it's only a developmental tool used to define my purpose.
Why a developmental tool? It teaches me to surrender, submit, and have integrity.
• I work from home (integrity) to do what I’m tasked with and track my hours honestly.
• I (submit) to my supervisor’s vision.
• Even if I don’t agree (surrender), I must adapt, pivot, and trust her leadership (continuous submission).
Our purpose is not our career, ministry, passions, or skills.
Our purpose is the reason we exist—it's the knowing we're built for something greater than our vocabulary can articulate. It's bigger than the boxes of doubt, shame, and fear we allow ourselves to wallow. It's seeing ourselves the way God does and showing up as such daily.
Character speaks louder than skills or destinations.
Purpose is saying, "God, I chose to live life FOR you. Please continue to guide my steps, and show me how to live a life poured out by making decisions from the place of relationship with you."
Purpose is the becoming, and success is the perspective to see the internal change taking place. Enjoy the journey!
Purpose is simple.
It's showing up consistently. That's hard.
Disipline is required.
Our purpose will permanently be attached to who we are, not what we do. #keepgoing
