We’ve talked about the basics that go into creating an utmost life: purpose, passions, and priorities, which define your goals and how you want to get to them. We’ve also talked about the attitudes that will keep you on the path: imagination, focus, and courage. Now it’s time to take a deeper look toward transforming your life, and for that you’ll need search for what is unique for your life; search for your purpose. This goes beyond figuring out what you are going to do or what career path you are going to take. I’m talking about the thing(s) that separate you from the rest of the world, that is unique to you. The thing(s) you were destined to dothe wonder in you.

WonderOne of the most important steps in finding your purpose, the thing(s) you were destined to do, is to start looking for it. Anything is possible. If you can find your purpose, then you can make it happen, no matter how enormous it is. There are great things waiting to happen to you, things so wondrous that you can barely imagine them. Even if you began reading this sincerely wanting to change your life, sincerely searching for the wonder that’s in you, you may have been just turning pages so far, flipping through the menu, waiting for something or someone to make the choice for you. It’s like when you go out for dinner and everybody always asks everybody else what they’re having before they decide. You might be thinking, Maybe Tim will suggest what I should do next, so that I don’t have to do all that writing and thinking and stuff. You may not even be aware that you’re doing that. But unless you’ve started to feel that urgency, that sense that there’s a new life waiting for you around the corner, then that’s what’s going on. When you do feel that urgency, it’s so exciting and energizing that I couldn’t stop you even if l wanted to.

You learn in life that the only person you can really correct and change is yourself.

-Katharine Hepburn

Of course, there’s no way I can tell you what you should be doing and you probably know that. They have to be your answers, your purpose, your passions. No one else can serve them up for you.

    I am always encouraged by your post,because it is about reality and what is going on in this world. For me I would not want anyone to tell me what to do with my life,because it has been done to me most of my life,and it was very unpleasant.So to respond to this post truthfully,I am 100% sure that I was born to be a healer ,and since Ğod gave me this gift six years ago,it has been very humbling for me,because He uses me in ways that blows my mind,but I simply do not talk or write about. I also love how Ğod uses me as His messenger,that also gave me so much mileage in blessing others in their lives,and I know in my life this is what I need to do. I thank Ğod for allowing me to be a voice for Him,so that many can come out of the wilderness, and also bless you for being my thoughts, when my words cannot be expressed how I would like them to be , Sometimes I make fun of you and say that you took the part of my brain that I felt was missing for some time lol. Ğod bless you for your presence in this world. Thank you.

    Thanks Dr. Storey, these words of wisdom help a lot. We have enjoyed visiting Family Faith Church in Huntsville and Willis since 2009 for several of your visits. We travel about an hour from Bryan/College Station when we can. You prayed for my oldest daughter who has mild brain damage from birth and my youngest daughter and myself at times.

    I am not sure what the God Idea is for me, but I am going to pursue my passion and see where it takes me. It’s very scary but time for a change. The single mother of two children and one special needs. I have had many challenges trying to work and care for them both. Caring for a child in and out of the hospital in other towns and trying to make the same thing work, just doesn’t anymore. Difficulties with trying to find someone to care for my oldest daughter is difficult with her challenges. It seems as if I am forced to create a home based business. Crisis creates success as they say. I hope that this is the God Idea for my life. He certainly has provided for us through the storm. He has tailored a life for our situation.

    Thanks for the words of wisdom and encouragement in your message Friday night. We enjoyed seeing you in Huntsville at The Roar, Youth Conference. I will continue to pray for your ministry. Please continue to pray for me and my girls in our new journey. I am looking forward to encouraging others and sharing my story someday as well.
