A Purpose Set

On Track
What has held the world together for you in hard times? Give an example. (Serendipity Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, page 821).

In hard times I have been blessed with a sense that God has a purpose for me, and this purpose, though not fully revealed or realized, has immediate implications for doable action. That is, though it was not abundantly clear how everything was working towards God's purpose for me, there was nevertheless a firm sense that nothing was ever useless, pointless, hopeless, futile, or meaningless. I was always blessed with a deep sense that “even this situation” was redeemable through purpose – and that no time or effort was ever wasted. The immediate implication was always that I could serve God wherever I was under whatever conditions or circumstances. I largely attribute this to careful indoctrination growing up that God has a purpose for everyone and that we can serve Christ despite our frailties wherever we are.
