Discovering and Embracing Your Life Purpose
Paul Peters, author
This book has been my dream to write. It truly is my life?s purpose illustrated in words. It begins by taking you on a personal journey by peering into a man by the name of Tim and his life. We do not come by knowing our purpose when we first entered this world. There are no instructions or clear guidelines given to us, but there are clues. Many of us never even find our purpose and thus never live the life we were created for. My attempt in this book is to provide the clues or ?Puzzle pieces? that I believe were not only put within us to find but are also discovered outside of us through life choices (good and bad). Tim?s story illustrates how in his life and mistakes he made he was able to discover some of those clues and be able to take Pain and turn it into triumph and purpose. For us to understand our purpose and reason for our very existence it entails that we start asking some questions and start searching for answers. Although finding one?s purpose is not necessarily easy it is worth the search as once you find your purpose you find fulfillment, joy, love, and a sense of meaning. Each chapter is another puzzle piece to help you discover what your purpose may be. Personally, I discovered mine after much pain and a lot of mistakes. Ultimately, I found it in my relationship with God. As you read you will begin to find and discover the clues to your purpose and my hope is it will keep you motivated to keep searching. As you venture through the book you will begin to discover your strengths, talents, gifts, passions, temperament, Love Language, Personality style, and Personality type. Various assessments, and tests have been provided as well as web sites to assist to identify each of these areas to help you better understand what you purpose is. My hope is that as you better understand yourself and what makes you who you are your Purpose will be revealed. Once you do then I believe your life will unfold with a greater sense of meaning and purpose with a desire to live out your purpose in service to others. I end with these 2 quotes. ?There is no greater calling than to serve your fellow men, there is no greater contribution than to help the weak, there is no greater satisfaction than to have done it well? Walter Reuther. ?Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many? Mathew 20:28.
