For many ages men have always wondered what their purpose in life was.
To others it seems to come so easy knowing exactly what that pupose is.
They knew, set out a plan of action to fullfill their destiny.
I guess that is where all of our great conquerers, inventors, spiritual leaders, presidents and many other important preople in history came from.
They went on a journey of life to fullfill what they knew was meant for them.

The old cliche of "trying to find my self" was another way of saying "what is my purpose in life".
What is it that I"m supposed to do.
This could be career wise,or what someone could do to be of help to better the world and its people.

I my self have always had so many things that I felt could be my purpose in life.
I have always loved art and drawing.
I have drawn and painted since I was in school. God has given me so many talents and gifts of the heart that I have always wondered should I work on and narrow one down to a perfect art?
I am a self taught musician, singer, and writer. I have always felt like a jack-of-all trades person.
But what is "my" purpose in life? I know it has to have something to do with my talents and the devine will of my Lord Jesus Christ. But I have always wondered should it be a combination of these things. Or one peticular area that I enjoy and can better my fellow man. Maybe I have already found my purpose in life. Maybe I have been fullfilling it all along. Through everything I do to be a good neighbor, friend, mother, artist, writer and singer.
Just maybe a persons purpose isn't any one thing. Just maybe it is being who you are and how you enrich the lives of those around you.Through being who you are in Christ, and in character.Don't lose yourself looking for your purpose in life. You may have already found it and didn't realize. lose

I love the conclusion you came to about your purpose--quite lovely.

Consider an additional edit for spelling: "divine" and "particular" jumped out at me. And I'm not sure about the "lose" at the very end...

I'm sure that you will continue to use all of your gifts to God's glory!

Some very nice reflections here, that many of us go through. Do a spell check and edit (like my self is one word myself, etc) and maybe combine it with a scripture verse or two, and it'd be a nice devotional.
