“The mystery of human existence lies not in just staying alive, but in finding something to live for.” – Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Life’s Greatest Question
Life is a question. The greatest question everyone on the earth must answer. This answer to Life’s question remains the most important you have to seek out for yourself.
It is the question Why?
“Why are you on the earth?”
It is a question everyone is called to answer and no person on this earth is excluded from answering this question. The reason is that there is no person on the earth by accident. There has not been any individual in this world who came here by mistake. No person is on the earth for a trial and error kind of Life. There are no nonentities on this planet earth. Our MAKER has a purpose for every soul on the Earth – a divine assignment.
It is estimated, that there are over 7.5 billion people in the world right now but among all these people, one thing is absolutely certain – No two (2) people are ever the same.
No matter how similar people may be, there will still be differences in their physical or psychological makeup. For instance; No two people can have the same fingerprints. , No two people can have the same iris pattern (Eyeballs), so on and forth.
Why is this so? The answer is just simple.
Everyone has been specifically made and designed to perform a specific assignment in Life. And this is why everyone has a distinct uniqueness.
As a Christian, I believe the Bible strongly in that it says;
New Living Translation
Bring all who claim me as their God, for I have made them for my glory. It was I who created them.'” – Isaiah 43:17
God created us for His GLORY – Isaiah 43:7. God is a God of Purpose and He will never bring anyone into this world for bringing sake. A lot of people are living a life of misery (full of self-pity and blame game) because they lack this truth.
Why was I not born to Bill Gates? Why do I come from this continent and not the other one? And so much more, feeling that life has been unfair to them.
One of the greatest quotes I have come across is a quote by Dr. Myles Munroe which says;
“Where purpose is not known, abuse is ineveitable”
“The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without a purpose.”
– Dr Myles Munroe
This is perfectly true. I will abnormally use a thing if I don’t know the purpose of that thing. You can have something very powerful at your doorstep but until you’re enlightened on its usefulness, you will dis-value it and probably use it for other inappropriate things and for that matter the probability of destroying it is also very high
You Have No Excuse To Fail
These People defied all odds. What Excuse Do You Have?
Hellen Keller was born in June 1880 and when she was 19 months old, she was affected by a sickness that caused her to be blind, dead and dumb. As she grew into a young girl, she became frustrated because she was unable to communicate.
Her parents hired a woman, Anne Sullivan who taught Hellen the alphabets by finger-spelling the sign language alphabets into her palm.
Hellen went to Radcliffe College and afterwards spent all her life working on behalf of the deaf and blind throughout the world.
Deaf-blind author and activist Helen Keller overcame incredible odds to become an international champion for the disabled. Learn more about her life in this mini-biography video.
It is recorded in his autobiography that even his mother refused to hold him when the nurse held him before her. However, the parents eventually accepted their son’s condition with the sense that that was God’s plan for Nick. He was born with deformed feet and uses that feet to operate his electric chair, the computer, and his mobile phone. His passion for God greatly increased and he became a pastor later on.
Pastor Nick graduated from Griffith University at 21 with a Bachelor of Commerce, with a double major in Accountancy and financial planning. He is an International conference speaker and the founder of ‘Life without Limbs’, an international non-profit organisation and ministry which was founded in 2005.
I shed light on the lives of these people to challenge you to harness whatever potential you have and use it for the greater good.
Nobody is Disadvantaged or a non-entity in Life. Get up and make a Difference.
