Your Divine Mission On Earth

 January 25, Day 18

I wanted to reiterate again, how crucial it is for everyone to pray to know of the truthfulness of these things that I share. Don’t take my word for it. God is the ULTIMATE SOURCE ALL TRUTH. He is aware of you, He knows you personally. Pay attention to how the following message and videos make you feel. The peace you feel comes directly from God through the Holy Ghost.

In order for you to discover YOUR MISSION on this earth, you have to understand where you came from,why you are here, and where you are going.

We lived with God before we came to this earth. He is our loving Father in Heaven. He loves us, so He created a plan for us to become like Him. This plan is called the “Plan of Happiness”, or the “Plan of Salvation”. This plan answers all of those questions:

Where did I come from?
Why am I here on earth?
Where do we go after I die?

Knowing the answers to these questions, and understanding where you personally fit in God’s Plan WILL bring you the greatest possible joy you can EVER imagine. And because of this knowledge you will further be able to understand what an important role you play. YOU HAVE A DIVINE MISSION ON THIS EARTH.

Watch these videos to understand God’s Plan of Happiness:

Here is a 2nd video that I love about the Plan of Salvation

Each of us have a divine mission to perform on this earth. Including our Savior Jesus Christ whose mission can be summed up in this scripture.

“For behold, this is my work and my glory- to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.” Moses 1:39

Jesus Christ is at the center of God’s plan for us. He loves us so much that He gave his only begotten son as a sacrifice. Jesus Christ was willing to sacrifice himself for us, so that we could return and live with our loving Father in Heaven.

OUR MISSION IN LIFE, the mission for ALL of mankind is summed up in this scripture:

“Behold this is your work, to keep my commandments, yea, with all your might, mind and strength.” D&C 11:20

I felt impressed to share some parts of one of my recent favorite talks by Steven R. Covey called “Achieve Spiritual Potential” Linked below:

PLEASE TAKE A MINUTE TO PONDER EACH LINE OF THIS QUOTE:

“WE ARE ALL EQUAL BEFORE GOD.

WE ALL RECEIVE THE LOVE OF GOD.

CHRIST ATONED FOR YOU.

YOU ARE PRECIOUS BEYOND PRICE.

YOU ARE OF INFINITE WORTH.

YOU ARE GOD’S OWN CHILD

DO NOT COMPARE YOURSELF WITH OTHERS

WHAT DOES CHRIST’S ATONING SACRIFICE SAY ABOUT YOU?”

I know that the spirit of Christ is given to every person on this earth. Since we all have it, we can know when we read truth. This is divine truth and comes from God. Everyone who reads those sentences above, feels the peace that only God can bring.

“Every salient truth which comes so forcibly to the heart and mind of man is but an awakening of the memories of the spirit.” -Joseph F. Smith

Your “divine mission” is whatever you are meant to do on this earth. Each of us has a different divine mission and that is why it is CRUCIAL that we do not compare ourselves to others, but that we look up and ask God, “What is it that you want me to do?” Then, after you pray, LISTEN.

I was talking to my friend Rhonna yesterday and she expressed to me a time in her life when she was struggling with many things. Her prayers changed from “Please help me!” and “Why is this happening to me?”

to

“What can I learn from this trial that will help me with the divine mission that thou has for me?” “What can I do today to fulfill my divine mission?”

She then challenged me to change my prayers as well. I am praying to know how my trials will be stepping stones toward my life mission. Each mission is distinct and different. It is up to each of us to FOCUS and figure it out.

3 Ways to Help You Discover Your Divine Mission:

1. Pray and Listen– as I talked about above.
2. Remember– Recite those phrases above to yourself DAILY. In order for you to find your divine mission and potential, you have to know WHO YOU ARE. You are God’s child!
3. Study God’s word— FEAST upon the word’s of Christ:

“Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life.” 2 Ne.31:20

I read this talk by Wendy Watson Nelson ten years ago. At the time I read it, I was newly married, no kids, and ready to conquer the world! Her words burned within my heart. I felt like the women portrayed in this quote— I knew I had a very important work to do. It is never too late to start discovering your life’s mission. She said:

“Do you feel a growing urgency to do all that the Lord requires of you, so
that you can fulfill your life mission? Every woman (and man) here was commissioned to do something, and probably many “somethings,” for the Lord.
I think of a great woman—a wife, mother, and grandmother—who has recently been focused on gaining a better understanding of her life’s mission. This past Christmas she called and said, “I did all the right things. We had wonderful food and scripture readings. The children performed the nativity. We sang carols and took pictures. We celebrated the Savior’s birth as a family and had a marvelous time being together. But now that Christmas is over, I’m looking for more meaning in my life.” What a spiritually in-tune woman! The Spirit is moving upon her spirit and letting her know that there is yet more to her mission on earth. She is like a thoroughbred ready to run.. She wants to do all that she was born to do—all that she agreed premortally to do here in mortality. Even though she is doing all kinds of “right things,” her spirit can tell there is something more, or something different, she needs to be doing. As she has thought about it, she knows that missionary
work has always stirred her soul. Could it be that she and her gifts for searching out missionary moments and for preaching the gospel with simplicity and power were brought to the kingdom for such a time as this? Congratulate yourself if you are in a situation similar to my friend, looking for more meaning in your life. It may mean that your spirit is restless and knows that you were indeed born to do something different, or more, than you are presently doing. If you feel a little unsettled these days, the problem may be that you are not yet doing what you came here to do. Does it mean that you
need to make a dramatic change? It may, but it may not.”

I believe that missionary work is a huge part of my divine mission in this life. Hence, a big reason for why this truth experiment was born.— I would love your help. If someone comes to mind that would benefit from this project, or from a particular subject within the project,  Please share it with them.

I can’t wait to hear about your divine mission.

And in closing, I say to you something that a wonderful and incredibly spiritual women said to me many years ago when I was 12 years old, “Thank you for everything you will ever do in your life.” -Margaret Nadauld

Discover your divine mission, let’s cheer each other on and remember that we are ALL on the SAME TEAM if we are rooting for CHRIST! Stand up, dust yourself off, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross” for each of us.

Until we return to Him and hear Him say, “Well done thou good and faithful servant.” You have completed your mission on the earth.

  1. I loved this Laura and needed it today. I feel my answer is to keep the Savior at the center of my decisions- daily, hourly. That is how I can be more present, more intentional. I have much more to say and read but my quiet time is over and it is time to pick up Caden from preschool. Thanks for the inspiration.
