Nothing compares to being in the zone. You’ve probable felt it — those natural-high experiences when you’re expending energy and recharging your batteries at the same time. It’s in those moments that you are doing what you were created to do and being who you were created to be. In other words, redeeming your purpose. The objective of this site is to help people discover their purpose and redeem it (i.e. cash it in) for personal benefit, community improvement, and affirmation of the Creator.
A while back I was talking with a friend about being in the zone. He heads up the lighting team for our church services, and I asked what it was about that task that fills him up. He likened it to finding the place where he belongs, even though it took him a long time and lots of retraced steps to get there (he’s in his early 50s). He was also helping out with lights at the local community center, not for monetary benefit, but simply to learn and see how others do it differently. I described the zone as being exactly where God wants me to be, doing exactly what He wants me to be doing, for the right reason.
“It’s like everything just clicks into place.”
“Yeah,’ he said. “That’s a good way to describe it.”
So how do you discover your purpose and make it click on a regular basis? The content of this site will tell you what I and others have done (and do) to make it click over the last 10 years. (I’m making it click right now…can you hear the keyboard?;-) Posts will be categorized in the following categories.
