Waiting and searching for my soul,
to show me purpose and a lifelong goal.
I know there is a God with a reason in mind,
I ask of Him, please show me what is kind.

I look in the mirror at that brunette me,
asking myself, "what do I want to be?"
I examine myself and take a count,
Where is it that I did amount?

Some days the answers don't come,
these are the days I feel very numb.
I close my eyes and look away,
Asking God for another day.

I think, at least in my opinion, what I have come to believe is that our primary purpose is to live in His love. What we are to 'be' or 'do' is secondary. That will fall into place as time goes by! Lovely poem!

Thanks for the insight Denise. What you said is true. But sometimes we slip and wonder if we are serving Him and fulfilling our place on this earth.
