It’s Time To Serve A Higher Calling.

‘And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count, it’s the life in your years.’
– Abraham Lincoln

Deep inside your heart, you know you are created for a higher purpose. If you listen carefully, you can feel the sense of purpose tugging at your heart.

Throughout your life, you have a deep sense that you must pursue a higher calling. The seeking of such a calling is part of a dynamic and meaningful life.

Knowing that there is a deeper meaning in life makes you feel alive. It lends significance to your existence and helps you live with excitement and fulfillment.

A life without purpose is mere existence. Not having something to look forward to is worst than death.

We live only when we have a sense of purpose and destiny.
It’s unfortunate that in the process of making a living, we may not remember to live life. There is a greater fear for death than for not living a full life.

If your life is driven by a higher purpose and you are committed to fulfill it, you will be able to overcome greater odds and fulfill bigger dreams.

The quality of your achievements is proportionate to the quality of your purpose.
If our Creator has destined you to live a great life, how then should you live?

Remember, If you don’t plan to live a great life, you will never live up to your highest potential and calling.
You will never know how great you are until you take the road to live a great life.

It’s the constant challenge to go beyond yourself that determines how well you live your life.

Living a purpose-driven life starts with asking the right questions. The quality of your life depends on the appropriate quantity of quality questions you ask yourself throughout your life.

For example, if you constantly ask youtself, “How can I live a great life?” You will constantly be exploring how to live a great life.

On the other hand, if you are consciously or unconsciously thinking, “How come life is so bad?” Your life will only become darker and gloomier.

Ask yourself, what will your life be when you are serving at your highest calling?

How are you going to turn it into a reality?

When you persist in seeking a higher calling in life, our Creator will respond to you. He will direct you and show you the way.

Without having a purpose, it’s like not having a compass to point you to the right direction. You will be groping in the dark, trying to find your way out of the jungle of life.

There is a unique purpose at every season of your life. It may not be the most perfect purpose but it’s the most appropriate purpose at that stage in your life.

Whatever you are doing right now is your calling and you’re doing it to prepare yourself for a higher calling.

Anything positive that you are doing has meaning, purpose and significance.

It does not matter if this is not what you like or want to do, or you played no part in bringing yourself to that point in life. You can leverage on it to enhance your contribution and make a positive impact.

Only when you see the task at hand as a calling then can you find fulfillment in it.

When you see it as a calling, you may discover that there is an even higher calling that you are not aware of. You can use it as a platform to achieve better outcomes for your life, for others, and for the environment.

When you put in your best for whatever you are doing right now, our Creator will call upon you to serve at a higher plane in life.

You need to live life to the full and make full use of your life.

Live it up and live it out – starting from now.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.

They are also meant to motivate those who are struggling in life and help them find handlers to overcome their conflicts and challenges. It is my ardent hope that we will form networks and alliances of like-minded people who will put to right many of the wrongs in our midst. Together, we will leverage on each other's resources and create a synergistic impact in making our world a better home. These articles are written as part of regular reflection about the vicissitudes of life. They are at best work in progress and at worst, grumblings, grouses, and gripings of a finite old man. I have deliberately decided NOT to delete many of the articles and pointers that I may not agree with or are outrightly wrong. This is to keep a record of how my personal ideas, beliefs, and values have evolved over time. In addition, I hope to encourage readers by letting them know that I also make mistakes and am struggling with many of the complexity and complication in life. As long as we hang on to hope and work on finding a solution, there will be light at the end of whatever tunnel we are in. I do not pretend to know everything or for that matter, anything of substance. In fact, the more I study, learn, and think about the vast wisdom and knowledge out there, the more I realised how little I know about life and the ways of life. Hence, I have always ended my article by asking readers to continue to teach me. For I, too, am a sojourner in the exploration of truth and the adventure of finding meaning, purpose, and significance for my existence. I am proud of and make no apology for being a Christian, albeit not the most exemplary one. I believe our Creator can lead and guide us to be the best that we can ever be. I bear full responsibility for the shortcoming and error in my life, including my words. The fault is entirely mine and not due to anyone else. Readers have and can exercise the power of choice. They can discard what will not work for them and adopt those that can propel them further and faster in the pursuit of better performance, outcomes, and fulfillment. If I have disappointed or hurt you in any way, form, or manner, I would like to apologise to you. Please do not hold them against me or whoever or whatever is related to me. There are much to pray about, learn, and do. And I'll work on them with a sense of urgency. I hold on to the belief that 'Anything worth doing is worth doing with passion and excellence'. I'll endeavour to live by it. Life is short. There's no dress rehearsal and neither can we turn back the clock to change the drama of life. Therefore, by the grace and power of our Creator, let's live a full life and live it to the fullest. May God bless you abundantly on the journey of life. Your online servant, Patrick Liew I hope this message will find a place in your heart. By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.
