Compile your statement
You will write your life purpose by melding these 3 parts together to make a statement that resonates within the core of your being. Use the sentence starters below and plug your answers from parts 1, 2, and 3 into the template:
Write your “highest value” sentence, from Part 1, here:
My purpose is to...
Write your 3-4 most important attributes, from Part 2, here:
Creating a place where _________________, _________________, __________________, and __________________ abound.
Write your “legacy” sentence, from Part 3, here:
Where each person…
As an example, my personal life purpose is:
My purpose is to declare God’s glory in freedom and vulnerability;
creating a place where unity, love, truth, and value abound,
where each person comes to the heart of God and celebrates life, abundantly.
Once you have your answers plugged into the template, you have what you need to create your life purpose statement. Ask God to help you articulate what He’s created you to do. As you write it, make it personal. Feel free to smooth it out and make it less formulaic. When you feel like you have a statement that resonates with you, you should feel some excitement and energy in it. It should “live” within you. If it doesn’t, spend some more time with the LORD going over the exercise again. There’s no right or wrong answer. Just follow what He puts in your heart. And, if you feel stuck in any way, I highly encourage you to sleep on it. God speaks to us and ministers to us when we sleep.
