The whole picture

Purpose is defined as the reason for which something is done or created.
If you have never asked yourself the question why you are here on earth,  then you maybe one of the very few. We ask, we read , we answer some questionnnare, psychometric tests  just to find out what we are made to excell in this life.
Any time I watch a gifted singer I ask myself, is there something else that I can do better than how they are singing?

I remember when I was a teenager, I was very curious about my brother and what he gets up to when he is out and about. I adored him and thought, (still think) that he was the most  coolest guy. 😄  I was super excited to get hold of his diary one day,  so I sat down to devour the sacred pages of this mysterious guy,  turned a page and it read’ Thursday comes before Friday’. Whaat? I knew what Thursday meant, I knew about Friday, I even knew that Thursday came before Friday but still I was struggling with the sentence. 😂I tell this story to illustrate the mystery of the purpose of life. sometimes we have pieces of the information but to get the full story we need to speak to the one who wrote our put the whole story together. 

Eventually my brother explained to me what that meant, it was his birthday before that of his special friend at that time , hers was on Thursday and his was on a Friday. Mystery solved, I learnt an important lesson that day, there is meaning to my life and although I may not understand fully, there is a reason why I like some things that others see as a bother, why Iam shaped a certain way, why I belong to a particular family. The writer of the mystery of my life has the full picture and hopefully I get to explore fully the coded purpose of my life.

The simple mystery
However even from the story of my brother’s dairy above, I was expecting some mysterious revelation to what that meant, also in life we sometimes stop ourselves from moving forward, with our ideas and dreams all because we are waiting for some mystery to be revealed.
Well I don’t think any mystical truth is there other than what the Creator has put in our hearts, in the shape of our likes, our burdens, our experiences and just what excites us.  Go on and explore that desire, that dream , that idea, it might just be the solution to the mystery of life.


Many years later, I still adore my brother, Iam still fascinated by him, still ask him about his life and guess what Thursday still comes before Friday .
For your consideration
