I had the privilege to speak to hundreds of crazy people last weekend(yeah, they are really crazy).It was the national YWAP campmeeting in the city of Kaduna.People came in from different parts of the country.There were also a couple of attendees from abroad.
It wasn’t my first time in Kaduna.I had been in Kaduna before but that was about eight years ago.I was really inspired by the visible difference between what I had seen on my first visit and what I experienced on this trip-Passionate young people…great atmosphere…peaceful ambience…warm hospitality…broad clean roads…but what i found most inspiring was the “purpose-orientation” of the young people who had come from different parts of the world to seek the face of God, rub minds with other great people and receive new strategies to help them transform their communities.
You could see it in their eyes.You could hear it in their voices.You could feel it in their pulse.You could sense it in their attitude.
These were not YOUTH WITH A PROBLEM…
These were not YOUTH WITH A PREDICAMENT…
These were YOUTH WITH A PURPOSE!
I was very comfortable.It was my kind of atmosphere.I love spending time with people who are going somewhere…people who have a dream and a sense of destiny…people who have a sense of purpose.They get my juices flowing.
Purpose is key to every noble accomplishment.
Your purpose is the reason you were born and if you don’t fulfill it, you’ve missed the whole point of being alive
Every thing has a specific purpose.Similarly every person on earth has a purpose…a unique assignment…
I hope you have discovered yours.
If you haven’t or if you are still in the process, i encourage you to stick close to this blog.One of my greatest joys is empowering people to live life at it’s peak.A good place to start is helping them to find and fulfill their purpose.
I was very excited that I was fulfilling my purpose by empowering them to find and fulfill theirs.It’s one experience I will never forget.My body still aches from the pains of speaking for almost four hours within twelve hours(between friday night and saturday morning) but my heart swells with joy because those people will become effective leaders, great fathers, emulatable entrepreneurs, scandal-free ministers because of one or two of the points I shared.
I’M FULFILLING MY PURPOSE.
THEY ARE FULFILLING THEIRS.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOURS?
