what is my purpose here?
It's this type of question that can drive you crazy and I think This is why we have a hard time with silence.
Silence forces us into a mentality of dealing with our undercurrent of thought and oftentimes the undercurrent of thought can include this iceberg of a question: What is my purpose?
much like a ship that has struck an iceberg many a person has sunk their life because they have not truly recognized the danger of not knowing their own purpose.
When a person doesn't know their purpose; like a ship sinking below the waves, they can be lost into the darkness of nothingness
this is probably the biggest fear that many of us don't acknowledge or are unable to acknowledge but we know it is true: when I don't have purpose, I am nothing.
It may sound counterintuitive but the best place to find your purpose in life is to find out God's purpose for your life
