What Do you think a “calling” or “life purpose” means?


life-1426252_960_720Awhile back, I purchased a journal titled, “Choose Your Own Journal” that has 10 different journals all wrapped up into one. When you open the book to the table of contents, you see the title, “Choose Your Journey.” Under that title, you see subtitles such as “Destination Journey,” Humanitarian Journey,” Spiritual Journey,” “Self Improvement Journey,” “Spiritual Journey,” and a collection of a few others.

From those titles, you can decide which “journey” you want to take. Throughout the book, it gives you prompts to write on. I find that this journal makes you think and opens your mind to other possibilities. If you like to journal- this might be a book that you could check it out.

One favorite writing prompt I have enjoyed so far is, “What do you think a “calling” or “life purpose” means… I thought that I would share my answer here on my blog…

A calling or your life’s purpose is what you were put on this Earth to do. God gives us all gifts that may sometimes help us fulfill that purpose. We all have a “journey” in life and God has a purpose for each and every one of us. Sometimes that purpose isn’t always related to your career. Your purpose could be humanitarian, to befriend someone, be a parent, lead an organization, take part of a special movement or even something in the arts. Our purpose for life has endless possibilities. Your life purpose could be how you can touch someone else’s life, or even multiple lives. ”

I’d love to read your commentsWhat do you think a calling or life purpose means?

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.” Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls…. Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International. She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein. Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“ During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
