Your Destiny

Our two greatest needs as humans:

  1. You were born with the need to love and be loved – care, touch, community, to be known, affection, the attention of others. 

  2. You were born with the need to be significant – to have meaning, purpose, substance, to matter, to have worth. 


You will not flourish until you are loved and you love.
You will not flourish until you discover a 
why to live for. 

2 Corinthians 1…3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. 4 He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. 5 For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ. 6 Even when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your comfort and salvation! For when we ourselves are comforted, we will certainly comfort you. Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer. 7 We are confident that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in the comfort God gives us.

To discover your "why", you have to study:

  1. Your makeup: 

    • Personality 

    • Gifts and abilities 

  2. Your life:

    • What has shaped you?

    • What happened to you? 

  3. Your passions. What moves your heart?

    • Ambassadors / reconciliation/ separation 

    • Healers /healing/ pain

    • Activists / love/hatred 

    • Nurturers / community/ isolation 

    • Stewards / good creation/ decay 

    • Champions / justice / injustice
