My Commitment

Hi y'all!

Am sure we sometimes wonder what we are doing here on earth. Is it just about getting an education, falling in love, getting married, raising a family, getting a job, climbling the career ladder, retiring or is there more to life? Most of us just follow the tides of life and take whatever life throws at us. Personally I think there is more to life. There must be a purpose for my existence. I know many of us are curious about our purpose on earth, sometimes we think we know it, next minute we aren't so sure of ourselves. Tough life!!!

I don't know how many people have read this book- THE PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE by Rick Warren. I got this book as a gift 2 years ago, I started reading it but never completed it for some reason or the other, then I lost it! Anyway just last week I got a parcel from someone and guess what was in it- yaaah, The Purpose Driven Life..LOL, so here's my second "God-ordained" chance to read it again. I believe this book would help me answer some of the questions I have in my head concerning my purpose.

Anyway I have decided to make a commitment to myself and to God to read this book (its a 40-day journey) and I believe at the end of the 40 days, by God's grace, I would know the real purpose for why God created me. I intend to share my thoughts on what I learn with you, hence the blog. Your comments are most welcome.

If you have the book I encourage you to read it; from the little I read of it 2 years ago I know you will be blessed.

Happy reading :)

  1. hey, all the best with the journey!
    I just wanna say dont get too focused on reaching the destination that you fail to enjoy the journey. So if you need to spend more than a day on a chapter in the book, totally take your time. Enjoy!

  2. I'm wondering... why would you think a book would help you discover the "real purpose for why God created [you]". Not that the book may not, but the belief that it would prior to reading it, would help you find your purpose in life... perhaps it's the reputation of a book preceeding it? I'll be looking forward to what you may have to share about the book... Happy reading.

  3. I think I must have given the wrong impression, I do not mean that the book will answer the question to the real purpose for why created me. I meant the book will help shed light in that direction. I hope that's clear now
