This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. ~ George Bernard Shaw
I love this quote about purpose. As long as each of us is breathing and has a beating heart, God has a purpose for us being here. Finding that purpose for our lives is important and I believe if we ask God He will show it us. Our purpose is important to Him as shown in the verses below.
But I have raised you up for this very , that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.
The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor.
1 Corinthians 3:8
Now the one who has fashioned us for this very is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
2 Corinthians 5:5
It is fine to be zealous, provided the is good, and to be so always, not just when I am with you.
In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the of his will.
