Happy Mother’s Day to all the ladies of B.L.O.G. Magazine™ and our readership!
I know there are some ladies thinking “Well, I’m not a ‘mother’, so that doesn’t apply to me.” Let me tell you- that is not true. You may not have given birth physically to a child, but you have given birth to an idea, dream, or vision. You have also served as a surrogate mother or god-mother to a child. Regardless of how you look at it, you have given birth to something, making you a mother. So, embrace motherhood and except my salutation to you: Happy Mother’s Day!
Since I am talking about mothers, you have guessed it…..May’s theme is commemorating the women who gave us life with a twist. Just as the seed was planted in our mother, she endured the gestation period where we were nurtured, developed, and grew. Eventually, she birthed us into the world giving us life! As children of God, we go through the same process whenever we birth what He gave us and purposed us to do. It can be a business, clothing line, an idea, etc. Whatever it is, it began with the planting of a seed. May’s theme is “Giving Birth to Purpose.”
“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.”~Psalms 139: 13-16 ESV
That’s right, you were created for a reason and there is purpose for your life! When your mother birthed you into this world, she gave birth to purpose. Your job is to discover your purpose and walk it out so the world can benefit. B.L.O.G. Magazine is here to be your “Purpose Partner” and guide you through the process.
May’s articles are designed to light a fire inside of you; ultimately, drive you down a path of self-discovery, rediscovery, and self-sustaining. You will find stories on how to find your purpose, live with expectation, live on purpose and how our “Purpose Partners” led us to our purpose so that you can discover yours as well. Then we can celebrate and have a “Purpose Party!” Walking aimlessly through life with no identity, passion for anything or drive is not what God created you for. He said that He came for us to have life and have it more abundantly. That means living a life on purpose and for purpose.
“He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
As you prepare to enjoy another month of articles that empower, encourage and educate, I challenge you to take an introspective look inside, and ask yourself the following questions:
* Am I truly fulfilled deep inside with what I’m doing with my life today?
* Are there ideas, visions or dreams that keep me up at night I am sitting on?
* What is it I get joy when I’m doing it? Do you do it enough? Should you be doing more of it?
* What is it you do that brings peace, joy and inspiration to others?
Answering these questions will lead you identifying your purpose. Let it be your launch pad for getting on track with living an intentional and purposed filled life. Be inspired and encouraged to “Give Birth to Purpose” and cast out fear. We at B.L.O.G. Magazine believe in you, and know you can do it! Believe in yourself – Take action today.
It’s time to celebrate! Congratulations on taking the first step toward birthing your vision…and Happy Mother’s Day!
