GUEST POST: IF YOU HAVE A PULSE, YOU HAVE A PURPOSE!

I’m a firm believer that if you have a pulse, you have a purpose. I say this with my whole heart, Everyone needs a blessing. And if you have the ability to bless others, be a blessing. And when you are a blessing to others, you will find “joy unspeakable” in the process….

I’m so pleased to welcome my featured Guest Blogger: Matik Nicholls

Matik Nicholls who was born in the twin Caribbean islands of Trinidad & Tobago. He grew up climbing trees and frolicking in the waves, surrounded by the vibrant creativity of soul music and the pageantry of his island people. He is part businessman, part churchman, part author, part surfer. His passion is to inspire, equip and empower people to walk in their purpose and fulfill their potential. He is happily married to his life partner; Tricia and together they have a beautiful blended family of five children and one granddaughter. He has an amazingly supportive family and wonderfully genuine friends. He is particularly passionate about wooing people from dutiful religion toward a vibrant and life-giving heart-to-heart relationship with Christ. Everything that He writes has this mission in mind. Head on over and check out his blog. http://www.authenticjoy.org

Matik Nicholls: One morning, as I was jogging around my neighborhood, I couldn’t help thinking about God’s promise to Abraham. In Genesis 12:3a (NKJV) God told Abraham: “I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you.”Every time I have thought about that verse it had been all about me. My attitude was like, β€œI am blessed! Woohoo! And don’t mess with me! If you curse me you better watch out!” But this morning God was showing me His heart for that verse. My focus was all wrong. His focus is actually on the second part of the verse: “And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

God wasn’t just trying to bless Abraham; He was sending His blessings to the whole earth through one man! That is AMAZING! And even more amazing is that this blessing transfer is part of our heritage. So often we tend to think that we are the center of the story, but we are not. Every gift, ability and blessing we have is for the service of others. We are blessers not blessees! We carry the presence of God wherever we go for a greater purpose than just for us to be happy. It is our privilege and purpose to transfer the blessings of God to others! Amen!

Sweet friends, I hope you are blessed by this lovely post. (I know I am) πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ Please feel free to comment below, and do follow http://www.authenticjoy.org and show some love, I’m sure Matik would love to hear from you. God bless!

Blessings and Love. . . πŸ˜ŠπŸ™β€

  1. I so agree.

    I believe that if the blessings were to be about us we would all be in heaven where we would have Him to His fulness as soon as we recieved Christ as our saviour. I believe our soul purpose of our continued presence here on earth in this phase (Rev. 21:1), is to be a blessing by prayer as a lifestyle to see the salvation of others and by being the practical hands of love to be available for God to use (through the leading of the Holy Spirit) to feed the hungry, clothe the naked… (Isa 58 & 61:1-3).

    Thank you for sharing πŸ™πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎβ€

  2. Galatians 3:14 KJV
    That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

    By redemption, we are a partaker of the ‘Abrahamic’ blessings through Jesus Christ.

    You know it’s crazy because for a long time I thought that my pulse and purpose was to be a millionaire and billionaire. I never took into account that my gifts and talents wasn’t to be used selfishly. My gifts and talents are to serve others. Bless them and help make their life a little better than before. I was so determined to be rich and have a lot of things that other people didn’t matter to me at all. They were just a mere checker piece on a checker board waiting to be conquered. But I soon realized that I was rich in mind but not rich at heart. My lust for worldly possessions became my reason for living. Once I didn’t get the opportunity to shine in college basketball and make it pro. I soon began to realize that I had this all wrong. I was living in a bubble of me, myself and I. There were people out there in the world that the most high had positioned for me to be over and lead. But they couldn’t get a leader because I was more focused in me than anything else in the world. Their chance at better and more would be held up because their leader wanted more for himself. I soon realized that the way that I was being wasn’t right and needed to change.
    So I agree our pulse is to build up the kingdom. Everyday we should use our resources to help others reach their full potential as well. You will find that you are at your happiest when you are assisting other people and NOT DWELLING ON WHAT YOU DON’T HAVE, NEED AND WANT.
    Your purpose is simple. It’s not to sing, dance, play sports, be a entertainer. If you are that’s pretty cool and amazing that you accomplished that. But your purpose is to be a service unto others. Because if who you are and what you have is not servicing others than. What are you doing with your life.

    Duces

  4. The maker of man always have intention,a purpose, he works in style and purpose,he made the heavens and the earth with a purpose,and created human for a purpose,and make mankind to rule over the earth he created for a purpose,he released his blessings to Abraham for a purpose-so that through Abrahamic covenant his seeds upon the earth will be blessed.
    He is a God of purpose.

  5. Hello GCD,

    Yeah, I love the concept that as long as we have breath we have purpose. It comes back to the Lord and his fullness.

    In Christ,

    Gary
