Bill Buckingham- Finding Purpose Through Community

“Some journeys take us far from home. Some adventures lead us to our destiny.” - C.S. Lewis

Many of us begin our journey with a heart full of dreams of what we could do, passions we uncover within ourselves, and a longing to make a difference in the world. However, there is often a problem. There are usually so many things we want to do that we can’t decide on what we should do. In those moments, many of us begin asking, “What am I supposed to be doing with my life? What’s my purpose?”

I believe two of the most important days of our lives are the day we’re born, and the day we discover why. Even though every single one of us has a purpose, very few of us ever discover it.

Everything I’m about to share in this post is coming from a posture of simply learning from my own journey and the many failures, successes, and lessons along the way. I am by no means an expert on any of this. I simply happen to be the recipient of God’s amazing grace as I try to navigate these things myself. My hope is for the words in this post to be an encouragement on your path to discovering God’s call on your life. My prayer is that you’ll get to a place where you can clearly and truly understand who God made you to be.
