God’s purpose for my life is simple; it is to live a good and faithful life and helping those in need. In the Book of Matthew, during the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus delivers The Beatitudes. It was this lesson that brought me to my calling of being a nurse. Matthew 5:5-7 (New King James Version) “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.” I find I am able to serve God by serving those who are sick, weak, poor and underserved.
I do not find it hard to live the life God has given to me. I love helping others and I have learned to love to teach others about God and his plan for us. On the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 6: 25-34 (NKJV) Jesus tells us not to worry about worldly things. God will take care of the small things. He will make sure we have what we need just as Jesus used the birds as an example. He stated in verse 26 “Look at he birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” So believing this, allows me to live the life God has intended.
How important is it that I am in alignment with God’s purpose? It is life or death, eternally. Matthew 7: 13-14 (NKJV) states: “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” If I am to enter into the Narrow Way, I must make sure I am in alignment with God. Jesus tells us that not everyone who says to Me, “Lord , Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he that does the will of My Father in Heaven (Matthew 7:21, NKJV).”
