Living A FUNtastic Life (Part 52)

‘And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count, it’s the life in your years.’   

– Abraham Lincoln  

Deep inside your heart, you know you are created for a purpose. If you listen carefully, you can feel the sense of purpose tugging at your heart.

Throughout your life, you have a deep sense that you must pursue a higher calling. The seeking of such a calling is part of a dynamic and fulfilling life.

Knowing that there is a deeper meaning in life makes you feel alive. It lends significance to your existence and helps you live with excitement and fulfillment.

A life without purpose is mere existence. Not having something to look forward to is worse than death. We live only when we have a sense of purpose and destiny.

It is unfortunate that in the process of making a living, we may not remember to live life. There is a greater fear for death than for not living a full life.

Achievements increase in proportion to the quality of your purpose. If your life is driven by a higher purpose and you are committed to fulfill it, you will be able to overcome greater odds and fulfill bigger dreams.

If our Creator has destined you to live a great life, how then should you live? If you don’t plan to live a great life, you will never live up to your highest potential.

You will never know how great you are until living a great life is the only road left for you. It is the constant challenge to go beyond yourself that determines how well you live your life.

Living a purpose-driven life starts with asking the right questions. The quality of your life depends on the quantity of quality questions you ask yourself throughout your life.

For example, if you constantly ask, “How can I live a great life?” You will constantly be exploring how to live a great life.

On the other hand, if you are consciously or unconsciously thinking, “How come life is so bad?” Your life will only become darker and gloomier.

Ask yourself, what will your life be when you are serving at your highest calling? How are you doing to turn it into a reality?

When you persist in seeking a higher calling in life, our Creator will respond to you. He will direct you and show you the way.

Without having a purpose, it’s like not having a compass to point you to the right direction. You will be groping in the dark, trying to find your way out of the jungle of life.

There is a unique purpose at every season of your life. It may not be the most perfect purpose but it is the most appropriate purpose at that stage in your life.

Whatever you are doing right now is your calling. Anything positive that you are doing has meaning, purpose and significance.

It does not matter if this is not what you like or want to do, or you played no part in bringing yourself to that point in life. You can leverage on it to enhance your contributions and make a positive impact.

Only when you see the task at hand as a calling then can you find fulfillment in it.

When you see it as a calling, you may discover that there is an even higher calling that you are not aware of. You can use it as a platform to achieve better outcomes for your life, the people around you, and the environment.

While you are serving your current calling, you should be mindful that there may be another potential higher calling waiting for you.

When you put in your best for whatever you are doing right now, our Creator will call upon you to serve at a higher plane in life.

You need to live life to the full and make full use of your life. Live it up and live it out – starting from now.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.
