A Philosophy Of Purpose
About the reason I am here;
Many years to think about it,
And quite a bit of time for prayer.
Not just about my family,
Though, of course, I do hold them dear;
How I live life along the way,
There is a purpose for being here.
Caring about my fellow man,
Gives me a reason for being;
Creating a plan for myself,
Enjoying the life that I'm living.
I was born to make a difference,
To those I meet along the way;
Be it just one or a thousand,
I'm careful to choose the words I say.
Put here just to help another,
Get through a life that's much unknown;
Gaining knowledge along the trails,
Making sure in my soul I've grown.
I've learned to trust in God above,
Through miracles He's given me;
That I have a purpose in life,
It is through faith that I can be.
I've learned through trial and error;
Now I do whatever I can;
For the Lord has called upon me,
To help Him teach His sacred plan.
One time I didn't understand,
What life was truly all about;
It has much to do with learning;
Sacrifice too, there is no doubt.
Yes, I've found a purpose in life;
It is to be with God above;
Living a life like Jesus did,
Won't earn me God's eternal love.
For it matters not how good we are,
As we travel along our trail;
Without complete faith in the Lord,
On this quest we will surely fail.
