Why am I Here? | S.E.M.P.L.Y

As I face the days ahead and the ushering in of the new year, I ask myself the question, “Why am I here?”.  As I evaluate my life and access past events and look forward to what my future holds, I am more aware of that question.

I began this blog as a result of that question, which was germinating deep in my soul long before I gave words to it.  The purpose for this blog ties in to my lives why.  That purpose: Spiritual, Emotional, Mental, & Physical Love for myself (Yourself), to become whole in my being by really knowing who “I” am. (Hence the name SEMPLY Whole Woman). This is a life time journey of discovery and there is no point of destination.  This is a journey to which the only end is death.  Therefore, since I am in this life until death do me apart from it, I have turned in my hat and badge for the position of life mundane.  I have made a conscious decision to stop going through life without purpose, merely existing.  I have decided to on purpose live a life of purpose, that my life would be an expression of the gifts that God has invested to me. 

A little over 2 years ago there came this sense of unrest, a sense that there was more to do, more to live.   It caused me to move beyond what I have known, beyond what was familiar, and beyond what was and is comfortable. With knees knocking I move forward with anticipation and fear. Yet never-the-less progressing, to discover and uncover the gift of me.  To know and to be intimately familiar with the truth of Psalm 139:4, “I am fearfully and wonderfully made”. To be able to boldly declare the latter part of that scripture (“And that my soul knows very well”) with full assurance and confidence in that truth.  To see in me the beauty, the talent and the worth that God sees in me and has created me to be.  To know the wonders of me, as God has created me.

For those of you who are already well on your way in living a life of purpose, I ask that you allow me to walk with you and glean from you. For those of you who are where I am, I ask that we be a source of encouragement to one another.  Finally, to those who may be feeling the stirring, know that you are my push and I would like to be yours as well.
   
If you are a blogger please leave your site address in the comments section, I would take great delight in your words of wisdom and your take on this journey called life. I am sure that I will be encouraged by your witness and your expression of purpose.  

Until next time, live to the fullest, laugh a lot and love much, and remember to never forget that you have greatness in you….. because you were created by a great God!
