Updated My Being Purpose Statement

I just finished updating my being-purpose statement. Basically, a being purpose statement is a written statement of why I am here. The difference between the being purpose statement and the life purpose statement is that my being purpose tells who I am (or want to be) and the life purpose statement tells what I want to do.

My update was simply to add the phrase “I endevor to receive and know the love of my Bridegroom (Ephesians 3:17-20).” I added this phrase because my being purpose statement was too much about me and what I wanted. I have been overwhelmed by God’s love for me lately, and I want to reflect that in my life. I want to be rooted and grounded in His love, for when I am then will others see Him in me. But if I don’t know His love and just keep striving on my own, others will see nothing but futile attempts at holiness which lead nowhere. From now on, I want to allow God’s love to infiltrate every aspect of my life.

My Being Purpose Statement: As a part of Christ's Bride and as one of His precious treasures whom He redeemed with His precious blood, I purpose in my heart to love and adore Him with all of my heart, soul, and mind (Matthew 22:37). I want to be beautiful in the sight of my Saviour, Jesus Christ. I will therefore pursue holiness (1 Peter 1:16) that I might worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness (1 Chronicles 16:29, Psalms 96:9) and go and proclaim His love, sacrifice and salvation to others who have not heard that I may have the beautiful feet of them that bring glad tidings of good things (Isaiah 52:7, Romans 10:15). My Life Purpose Statement: I desire to serve my Redeemer and Savior Jesus Christ throughout my entire life by ministering to girls and women. I pray that I will be able to bring many girls and women to the Cross of Christ that they may find salvation from a loving and gracious Savior. It is my heart’s desire to encourage girls and women who know the Savior to deepen their relationship with Him and to fall more and more in love with Him. I also want to serve women by assisting them in their everyday lives whether I am rolling up my sleeves to work alongside them or am connecting them with people, ministries, and or resources that will be helpful and beneficial to them. By God’s grace and power, through His Spirit, and for His glory will I endeavor to fulfill this purpose
