Words to SPARK your Heart-Song – Episode #195

Purpose

Hi everyone. I’m Sherry Douglas with Heart-Song. Within the videos, posts, and website, you may have heard or seen talk of having a purpose for your life. We believe each and every person is designed by God to serve him and others in numerous and creative ways.  Some people latch on to this idea wholeheartedly and embrace it with zeal. Others shy away from it – maybe in fear of getting it wrong, not knowing where to begin, comparing themselves to others, or simply not believing in themselves or God. Perhaps the wild and beautiful trait children naturally have of dreaming of and imagining their futures was not cultivated in you and died an early death. You may find it difficult to believe there is a purpose for your being, but there is a humble place to begin. You can take stock of your everyday life to see how what you’re already experiencing may grow to bring more joy into your life, and into the lives of those around you.

As you go about your day, be mindful of how your head, heart, and body are feeling. Do you feel your mind slowing when you’re in nature or when you’ve immersed yourself in an art gallery? Do you find that your heart feels more alive when you are with children or when you’re having an unhurried meal with people you love? Can you hear what your body is telling you when you’re serving others or you’re taking a run?

Whatever you’re doing, reflect upon what your head, heart, and body are communicating to you. Listen with intention. Do more of what brings you joy…not in a self-centered way, but in a way that is satisfying and fulfilling. A way that brings goodness and love into your sphere of influence.

Live the way you want to be remembered.
