Stephen’s Gate: Awakening Your Spirit, Reviving Your Destiny


run“So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing.” (1 Corinthians 9:26 NLT)

Every step you take has a purpose. In the natural you walk with a purpose, you don’t just wander around. You have a specific destination and task to complete that tells you which direction to step in. It should be the same in your spiritual walk. Every step you take should be decided based on your destination and the task God has given you to complete. Walk with purpose.

    Hi Jenny. There are different stages of life that we go through where we are challenged to know our purpose. It’s usually at a point of transition that this happens. The best advice I ever had when struggling with my purpose was a question, “What are you passionate about? What is it that, when you think about it or talk about it, it bothers you? What is that something in life you want to do something about and change?” This is where you start, what are you so passionate about that you wish you could do something about it? Start with that and take small steps. As you do, you will soon find yourself right in the middle of your purpose.
