Do you know your “why”?
People often begin a spiritual journey with these questions:
- “How will I serve God?”
- “Where will I serve God?”
- “When will I serve God?”
- “What will be required of me when I pursue God’s will for my life?”
However, God’s purpose for your spiritual journey, for your work, and for your family starts with “why?”
Unless you first tackle the “why” question, everything else – your finances, your background, your education, your training, your age, and so on – becomes a mountain that prevents you from moving forward. On the other hand, if you know your why, those mountains somehow don’t appear as big or as insurmountable.
Ken Costa has been an investment banker for more than 40 years, but he’s invested in far more valuable things than the financial world. He speaks into the lives of young people around the world about building God’s kingdom. He’s written a book called Know Your Why: Finding and Fulfilling Your Calling in Life.
Ken is our guest on our Focus on the Family Broadcast, “Finding God’s Purpose for Your Life.” He’s offering four Cs that can help you discern where God is leading you in any given season:
- Consider the opportunity.
- Consult with trusted people around you.
- Clarify the issue.
- Courage to decide once you’ve considered, consulted, and clarified.
There’s a fifth “C” that arises out of those four: Contentment. It’s the result of knowing that you’re in the center of God’s will.
I encourage you to join us on your local radio station, online, on Apple Podcasts, via Google Podcasts, or take us with you on our free phone app and discover your why. Learn how to hear God’s voice and discern His direction for you.
If you don’t know your why, Jesus is there to help you, to guide you, and to remind you that you’re loved, you’re known, and you’re called by Him. If you know your why, you can help others to find theirs. Ken Costa offers practical steps that will help you cut through the noise that so often blocks out God’s voice.
Ken’s book Know Your Why: Finding and Fulfilling Your Calling in Life is available for a gift of any amount. Visit our website or give us a call at 1-800-A-FAMILY (232-6459).
