Welcome! Thanks so much for visiting Striding Towards My Purpose.
This blog is the result of me combining the other blogs and sites that I have worked on over the past three years. I was finding it hard to maintain so many blogs so I decided to create this new blog where I can share on a range of topics and also include content shared on the previous blogs.
I started my first blog in 2017 to encourage people through the various situations that they face in life and I hoped that in the process of sharing my journey, others could learn and grow as well. My reason for starting is the same reason that motivates to keep writing now.
The Reason Behind the Name Striding Towards My Purpose
I started 2020 by doing a fast and as part of that process I watched a series of messages by Ps Michael Todd (Transformation Church) called Stride. The core of the series was that when we stop striving and trying to do more in our own efforts and stride (be intentional about the few things God has given us to do) then God will do more on our behalf.
This series became confirmation for me of a journey that I had started in the last quarter of 2019. I had begun to explore minimalism and this idea of stripping away the extra so that I could focus on those things that were key in my life.
So that’s the path I’m on now: striding towards my purpose. I’m choosing to be intentional and focussing my efforts of those few things that I believe God has created me to do so that I can be a blessing to those around me and have the most impact.
I hope you will join me for the journey and learn something that will help you on your own journey 🙂
