Our divine purpose is not always the perfect job or career. For me, your divine purpose is that thing that brings you the most joy and allows you to make the greatest change in the lives of the most people.
God always gives us signs about our lives and whether or not we’re going in the right direction or down the right path. I just think that some of the time, we choose to ignore the signs because we don’t have to courage to face them. Because once we do, we know that we’ll have to start to make some changes and that can be scary. We get scared because we don’t know if we have what it’ll take to see it through.
I have learned though that there are at least four signs that God allows us that reminds us that we are living outside of our divine purpose. See if any of these are familiar to you and I’ll tell you how to get back on track!
If you find that boredom is a usual state for you, then you might be living outside of your divine purpose. Now I’m not talking about just Ho-hum bored, I’m talking about a boredom that can’t be satisfied by lunch with your friends or by reading a good book. I’m talking about a boredom that’s relentless, consistent and teeters on the verge of painful!
- A Sense of Unhappiness
Have you ever found yourself feeling a general sense of unhappiness and have no idea why? The bills are paid, everyone is well but you still feel a general sense of unhappiness. This could be a sign that you are living outside of your divine purpose. This unhappy feeling doesn’t pass easily. It’s not quite a feeling depression but it can have the tendency to overshadow moments that would otherwise be joyous and cheerful.
- Lack of Motivation
You’re not really feeling your job and there’s a general disinterest in things that you may have found interesting not too long ago. Your motivation is low and you wake up a little more uninspired every day. Yeah, you may be living outside of your divine purpose.
- People Are Telling You
Your friends, family and even people who don’t even know you very well often tell you that you should be doing something else with your life! And in your quite moments you think about it, and you know they’re right!
So how do you find yourself in line with your purpose when there are so many signs telling you that you’re not?
The answer is to accept it! Accept that you want more for yourself, that what you have, even though it appears to others to be enough, it’s simply not enough for you!
Once you can stop ignoring the signs, you’ll make room in your heart and mind for divine inspiration and direction for defining your real purpose and taking the first steps toward making it happen!
