Greetings Saints! This week we are closing in on the final mindset of How to be Happy in Tribulation. Mindset Seven is Purpose. How is 'purpose' a mindset? It's a state of continually seeking to understand and fulfil our purposes.
Do you remember, It's a Wonderful Life and George Bailey? George became depressed because he didn’t understand his purpose and thought he had lost all chance of fulfilling it! A person without purpose is a person without hope, and often depressed.
When George Bailey realised his purpose....he was overwhelmed with joy. His purpose was not what he thought. It was touching people, not buildings. A mistaken purpose leads to great frustration! Finding our purpose brings joy.
Jeremiah 29:11 and Matthew 6:33 make it very clear that God has a purpose for us all. The pursuit of purpose is both a discovery and a journey. If you focus on your tribulation and lose sight of your purpose, you will lose joy. But if you stay focused on your purpose, it will enable you to persevere and overcome through your tribulation with JOY!
