Understanding Our Purpose in This World

By Nancy Stoops

When I was five years old my friends would line up on my front porch and give me a nickel to help them with their problems.  They would tell me that I had good advice even back then.  Even as a little girl I felt so good when I could make somebody feel better and ease the pain in their heart.  At five I knew my purpose in this world.  I knew I was put in this world to help people heal from their pain.  I knew even back then this was a gift from God and I was not to waste this present.

In high school my psychology teacher told me that I needed to go onto the field of psychology because she say something special in me.  Just like my little friends lined up for help she also saw why I was here.  Eventually I got the degrees and the license that honors me with being able to help many people in this world.

Understanding and honoring my purpose in this world gives me an immense sense of inner peace.  It makes me feel as if I’m following God’s blueprint for my life and that feels so awesome.  It makes me feel right with the world and with my life. It’s incredible to be able to make a fantastic living from the very work that I was always intended to do.

Please understand that all of you have a very special purpose here as well. Take the time to search your soul to find your unique reason for being in this world.  Then take the time to go and get the education that gives you the very credentials to do your life’s work.  I promise if you follow through with this you will feel a sense of nirvana.  Your life will be the very life that you have always dreamt about and you will be so very proud of who you are!!!
