You Were Made With Purpose & Made For More – By Amanda Chenai

We Are Creating A Space To Explore Purpose & Being Made For More

Hi, I’m Amanda Chenai. I’m a lover of God, traveling, food, and a good book! I’m also the founder of Femelle Soul, a Christian platform for women by women and I’m excited to be hanging out with you ladies at the Hope Table Sisterhood. 

On September 14th, 2019 ‘MADE FOR MORE’ will be arriving in Birmingham and of course, you are invited! ‘MADE FOR MORE’ will focus on how we, as Christian women can live out our lives for the glory of God. We are creating a space where we can seek God’s face, as one, in unity, and be empowered and inspired to become all God has called us to be. We’ll be exploring the topic of ‘Purpose’ and being ‘MADE FOR MORE’. I’ll drop more details at the end of the post….first, though, I want to share my thoughts with you.

 

You Were Made With Purpose For A Purpose

God is intentional. That means He does things on purpose. The world, you and I were made with a purpose. 

“God made everything with a place and purpose…” Proverbs 16:4

If we’re made with a purpose, it makes sense exploring what that purpose is, so we can make use of our lives whilst we’re here on earth.

As a Christian, your ‘overarching’ purpose is to glorify God. Our salvation is for God’s sake. He created us for his glory. Glory can be difficult to describe but the easiest definition for me to understand was when someone explained God’s glory as “His goodness. It’s the beauty and excellence of his perfections. It’s all his attributes in one.

Everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.” Isaiah 43:7 

 

You Were Made For Detail

God is glorified in our lives when people see Him in us, that His glory might be known and praised. That moment when someone looks at your life, and they say “Woah, Gods amazing, only He can be the reason for X Y and Z.” That’s Him getting the glory.

Let your light so shine among men that they may see your good deeds and give glory to your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).

God gives each of us various passions, skills, and gifts which we can use for His glory. 

Sometimes it’s an obvious skill or talent like singing or playing an instrument or pastoral work, other times it’s hidden in your hobbies; painting, writing, blogging, being a good listener, a confident speaker, an encourager. These are all assets of our personalities that can be used to glorify our heavenly Father.

God has made us different for a reason. He’s intentionally designed us to be more effective at some things than at other things, more confident in doing some things rather than other things. And I believe that a lot of the time, your calling is probably hidden in your passion. It’s hidden in the detail.

For example, no-one could’ve ever told me my calling was in painting. I wasn’t and am not interested. But I’ve always known I liked writing. I just never knew I could write for God. Until now!

You Were Made For More

Right now, giving God the glory through my life comes through pouring into my blog, writing, posting and getting involved with my church. The Femelle Soul platform is all about inspiring other women to pursue God and find their joy, love, and purpose from Him because where there is no purpose, people can end up wasting their time and ultimately, their life.

 Where there is no vision, the people perish (Proverbs 29:19).

And, you know, maybe my blog will never blow, but my prayer and intention are that it will inspire someone else to start a blog or step into their calling and purpose that will change the lives of thousands or millions. I’m happy with that. Because it’s not about me. It’s about Him in me, through me, getting the glory.

What are your thoughts on purpose? I really want to know, so why not pop your initial thoughts into the comments section below?

And of course, when you’re done, you can head over to Event Brite to book your ticket to our gathering of powerful women. Girl, we will be saving you a seat at the table on September 14th at Oikos Café, 58 High Street, Birmingham!
