I once heard a man say that our purpose in life is based on what we hate.
I think there is truth in this. Perhaps those things we canít stand or those things we hate to see, is the core of our purpose.
Jason Upton says it this way, ďGod took us out of the hole so we can benefit the hole.Ē
Therefore, the reason we hate it so much, whatever it be, is because we have the power to change it, and this becomes our purpose.
For me, I truly hate to see young people waste their lives. Whether it with drugs or simply having no goals or dreams. I hate seeing young people with nothing to look forward too. So many Iíve met seem to be wasting away and doing nothing with Godís calling for their lives, because they have no self-worth.
Many of my friends believe they are in pain and hurting because this is what they deserve. They believe they will do nothing in their lives to amount to anything; they have no goals and their dreams have long faded away.
I am saddened by the fact that so many young people are allowing themselves to suffer because they donít know thereís another way.
Iím not sure how to help or change this sad truth of this generation today, except perhaps little acts of kindness along the way, reaching out with love and most of all prayer.
To be honest 95 percent of young people I've come in contact with have been this way and know only lives of drug additions.
The truth is, our communities are dying because of drug addictions, violence and hate. Itís a sad truth that is difficult for many to face. How can so many young people feel they have no where to go or nothing else to turn too but drugs?
Perhaps my purpose is to fight for my friends and those in my community, through prayer.
If you are reading this, I would like to ask that you pray with me for the young people in my community and communities all over this world. Letís agree together that Godís hand of mercy will reach down into the dark holes of existence and pull these souls out of bondage.
