Discover Your Purpose & Find Fulfillment!

"Moving Beyond The Meantime" with Minister/Coach Shonneia M. Adams
A four week series presented by:  FRONTLINE (Faithful Central Bible Church)

Week 1: February 3, 2012

The concept of “Moving Beyond The Meantime” is to transition one from the mindset of focusing on one single event, like marriage, to their life’s journey and ultimately God’s ordained purpose for their life.  When we discover God’s purpose for our lives we open the door to genuine fulfillment.  His ordained purpose establishes HIS covenant and enables us to BE who HE has called us to be.  God’s covenant reflects His promises for our life.  Who you are in covenant with, shapes your destiny. 

Getting Intimate!

Summary of Getting Intimate

1.  We must know the source that has set us on our path.  Knowing our source = power.
2.   We must trust our source.
3.   We must know who God is, our source. (Character/name)
4.   We must bond with our source.  (Sacrifice, Relational, Perceptible*)
5.   We must be open to intimacy with Him.  (Into me see)
6.  We must establish the habit of “Intimacy” to grown in relationship.  Intimacy = closeness in relationship

*Steps of bonding adapted from Al & Hattie Hollingsworth's Christian Business Ministries; Home of B.O.S.S. The Movement & Vertical Leap

It is through “Intimacy” that our PURPOSE is discovered and revealed.  When we are on a journey of purpose, we find fulfillment.

Are You Fueling Your Passions?!

Over eleven years ago I loss my father.   Loosing my father caused me to reflect and examine more deeply on my life and its meaning.   An immediate question that was raised was, would my life have significant meaning and make an impact?  You see, the reality that tomorrow was not promised took on a different meaning when I loss my father.  I knew I wanted my life to have meaning and to make an impact.  I just didn't know exactly what that looked like at the time.

There was a sudden flood of questions that surfaced and needed to be answered.  Like: Was I leaving a legacy and what would  my legacy be?  How would I like to be remembered?  What would be my foot prints, that I would leave the world?  How would my life impact the lives of others?   

I began to question  the true meaning of my life's journey?  What was I passionate about?  Ultimately, the biggest of all questions was, what was my purpose?!   I knew there was  a plan and purpose for my life.  I just didn't know what that looked like exactly.

As I began to search for answers, understanding that contained in every question is an answer, my search caused me to go deep.  This level of searching caused me to look deep within myself, unlike I had ever examined.  What I realized is that leaving a true legacy is birth through purpose. The harsh reality was, I wasn't clear about my purpose.  I wanted my life to have greater meaning and that was not possible without knowing God's purpose, because out of purpose comes passion.

Purpose is contained within our passions.  The question now to answer was, what am I passionate about?!  Passion is the fuel that drives us and gives our life greater meaning.  The key is to find what makes your heart sing.  Doing what you love!!  For me it's speaking, training, motivating and empowering others.  Fuel your passions!

Passion drives one beyond!!   Beyond your bank account, beyond your circumstances, beyond what you have, beyond what  you don't have, beyond your education, beyond your borders, beyond your environment, beyond.  It's that pearl of great value that when discovered you hold it so dear.

What are you willing to do solely because you enjoy doing it? What is it that you do and you may or may not get paid for doing? You do it because it's your pearl, it's what you are passionate about?  Tap into and discover this and you will open the door to your God-given purpose and release  your passions.  Live a life that is passionate and fuel your passions!
When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold everything he owned and bought it!   
~ Matthew 13:46 (NLT) 

What is your pearl of great price?!
