Life and success outside of purpose and destiny is not as fulfilling as it is when you are in destiny. The end may seem the same but is, in actual fact, very different.
My personal story – My search for purpose and destiny began by accident. It started early 2006 right when I received my grade 12 results. My whole time at high school, I worked towards getting good grades to get a good education so I can get a good job and so on and so forth. And when I finally “arrived” at my ultimate goal, I figured I would be over the moon, but unfortunately it was the complete opposite. I was so dissatisfied and almost depressed because what I thought was the ultimate didn’t give me the fulfilment I thought it would.
I had quite a few accomplishments in high school and when I finally got my results, I thought it would be the icing on the cake but instead I felt a bit disillusioned even though my results were really good because I thought to myself, ‘is this all there is to life? So what…and then what?’ I had so many unanswered questions which left me a bit bewildered and I thought ‘there must be more to life than the pursuit of success according to the world’s standards’ because it doesn’t quite leave you with the fulfilled feeling you thought it would…
It was at this point that I started to ask who I really am and what I want out of life because I recognised that if I continued without taking time out to really think about my path, I would probably end up “accomplished” and at the end of it only realize I had been climbing up the wrong ladder once I had gotten to the top.
That was the start of my journey and looking back I see how God gave me titbits of success so I can appreciate (early enough) that true accomplishment and ultimate fulfilment can only be achieved in His purpose and destiny for my life. Ultimately it looks like the same goal from the outside, because God is the one who gives dreams and visions, but only you can understand the difference between the two….and in God its bigger and better!
And right now, it actually feels I’ve only just began because once you get on that journey, God first schools you on His way of doing things, and that process may not always be pleasant, but it’s totally necessary.
