Day 29: Purpose 4 - Serving God

Day 29 introduces the next purpose - serving God.  We serve God by serving others, in other words, meeting their needs.

In one sense, this purpose seems the easiest to understand.  It was what I was looking for when I first read the book The Purpose Driven Life - what am I supposed to be doing with my life? 

In another sense, I find it also the most challenging.  In my work (before I went on maternity leave) I met people's needs all day, but I didn't feel like I'm making a contribution. I felt like I was taking up a position that someone else would be grateful to have, while I had long ago taking a wrong turn and was now irretrievably lost.   
The question to consider for this chapter is "what is holding me back from accepting God's call to serve him?".  I have to say, I seriously just do not know what to do.
