To effectively steward your divine gifts and discover your true purpose – your life assignment – you must first align yourself with your divine inner compass.
Discovering your life purpose is a process, a journey that continues throughout our lives. As we seek God and take faith steps along the way, He will reveal to us who He has made us to be. He is at work in us both to be willing to do and to carry out His good purpose for our lives.
