what is my purpose?

have you ever questioned your purpose in life?  do you ever question your chosen paths?  are you ever haunted by the decisions that you or others have made during the course of your life that have greatly effected and altered the outcome of your journey?

i am currently reading victor frankl's man's search for meaning.
in his book he recounts his journey as he was cast into the nazi network of concentration camps in the 1930's.  his account is less about his suffering and loss than it is about the strength to survive.

quoting from the forward of the book - 
"frankl's most enduring insight, one that i have called on often in my own life and in countless counseling situations:  forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation.  you cannot control what happens to you in life, but you can always control what you will feel and do about what happens to you."

you and i have been chosen by the Creator of all to worship and serve Him with all our heart, mind, soul and strength.  no matter what our day looks like - no matter what curve balls are thrown our way, we can choose to have a grateful heart and worship our Creator.  

in the words of andrae crouch - "through it all i've learned to trust in Jesus - i've learned to trust in God."
