WHAT were you BORN for?


GOD to prophet Jeremiah:

Jeremiah 1:5

King James Version

5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; 

and before thou camest forth out of the womb 

I sanctified thee, 

and I ordained thee a prophet 

unto the nations.

Ever wondered what you were born for?

I used to marvel at people who seemed so in place.

So organized, so sure of who they were.

So sure of what they wanted to be when they grew up.

Ask most kids, and they'd know.

I don't think I had that gift.

It took me a long time to know.

Through lots of hits, and misses.

Late bloomer, some would say.

All I knew is that I loved to sketch, paint, write, and read.

For the longest time, I didn't really know my place in the world.

Only by being born again did all come into place.

Now I knew the reason for those things.

For all the odd jobs.

GOD wanted me to write.

He wanted me to create many blogs, books, and posts.

So I could tell you all I came to know.

If I had not been born again, I'd probably be still coasting along.




GOD had been watching me, all along.

He made me go through many experiences.

Sweet, sour, painful.

All lessons to learn from.

Everything has a purpose in GOD's world.

All your gifts and talents blossom, when GOD is in your heart.

ESPECIALLY if you desire to serve others well.

And to SERVE Him.

Serving Him means you love Him.

Serving others means you love them.

That you are listening to what JESUS taught you.

You are able to make full use of your gifts, because the SPIRIT of GOD is in you.

And because He is, you are eternally humbled, and grateful.

By ourselves, without JESUS, what could we do?

John 15:5

King James Version

5 I am the vine, 

ye are the branches: 

He that abideth in me, 

and I in him, 

the same bringeth forth much fruit: 

for without me ye can do nothing.

Waste not those gifts that you have.

Don't worry if you can't figure it all out yet.

Don't worry if you're not being paid your worth.

Who knows your true worth?

Only GOD does.

Get to know Him first, and you will know your true worth.

Serve others, as SPIRIT guides you, and you will do just fine.

If there seems to be chaos in your life right now, know that you need to seek GOD.

You need to pray to Him.

If you got fired at your job, surely, it's for GOD's purpose.

He may want you to seek Him, to serve Him, or to change jobs.

There is a message, in every challenge.

Sometimes, it's pure common sense.

All I know, from being in the world long enough, is that EVERYTHING serves GOD's purpose.

Unbelievers won't be able to figure it out.

Only by believing in JESUS, in having His SPIRIT in us, will things become clear.

I assure you of that.

Focus on CHRIST alone.

Colossians 3:1-2

King James Version

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 

seek those things which are above, 

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, 

not on things on the earth.


Let Scripture answer you.

Luke 16:15

King James Version

15 And he said unto them, 

Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; 

but God knoweth your hearts: 

for that which is highly esteemed among men 

is abomination in the sight of God.

Make use of the gifts GOD gave you.

That you may better serve others.

Don't focus on money, or possessions.

We were meant to love.

That's really what work is for.

Mark 12:30

King James Version

30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God 

with all thy heart, 

and with all thy soul, 

and with all thy mind, 

and with all thy strength: 

this is the first commandment.

Mark 12:31

King James Version

31 And the second is like, 

namely this, 

Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself

There is none other commandment greater than these.

Matthew 22:40

King James Version

40 On these two commandments 

hang all the law and the prophets.

PRAY, to know, what you were born for.

Pray, to know, how to love.

GOD has much to tell you.
