To experience wholeness, five desires of our hearts must be met:
Security. Who can I trust?
Identity. Who am I?
Belonging. Who wants me?
Purpose. Why am I alive?
Competence. What do I do well?
Each of those are listed in their correct order, by the way. If you feel secure, you’re more likely to discover the deepest passions and strengths of your identity. Out of those, you’ll discover your purpose and develop competence.
Matthew 6:33 says, “Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
