Do you like to solve mysteries—most people are attracted like a magnet!

That’s why marketing campaigns use “intriguing” words to draw you into their products, and the film industry creates high levels of mystery in their ads—they want you to be a part of their mysterious plot :)

One of life’s greatest mysteries is how to live a deeply satisfying life—find true love, be happier, live longer, healthier, and more successful.

Being analytical or emotionally driven when looking for answers to life’s questions can lead us to formulate beliefs that can be so far from the actual truth it negatively impacts our life, making things worse than ever.

For a analytical “problem solver” like myself, that can be truly challenging!

I learned the hard way how dangerous it is to allow myself to rationalize a truth and then live my life out of that rationalization.

If you look in the right place, you’ll find the truth is not a secret at all.

The truth I’m speaking of is profound-unchanging and reveals all the answers most of us search for our whole life—a place where you can find purpose, direction, strength, peace, and meaning for daily living.

That place is The Bible, and the truth is The Word of God.

Psalms 119:160 says, “The sum of Your Word is truth, and every one of Your righteous rules endures forever.”

2 Timothy 3:16-17
“All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, and righteousness training, so the man of God may be competent and equipped for every good work.”

The Bible gives us truth about God, the world we live in, accurate spiritual information, what and how God provides for us and what we are responsible for. It also answers tough questions about why things happen the way they do, and the best choices we can make for a deeply satisfying life.

Daniel 2:22 says, God reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness and the light (truth) dwells with Him.

Be assured God has a good plan for your life; you only need to seek Him and walk out His plan according to His timing!

Jeremiah 29:11
“For I know what I have planned for you,” says the Lord. “I have plans to prosper you, not to harm you. I have plans to give you a future filled with hope.”

Something powerful happens when our eyes are opened to our purpose for being on this earth. That purpose will ignite our hearts, and our choices will begin to glorify God.

When your heart is full of purpose and passion to live for God, you have found your secret to success.
