I love this and if you want my opinion, I'd be glad to share. I can answer every question with one word ... Christ. I can personally tell you that I have experienced miracles that can't be explained by science. I've witnessed those on the brink of death become fully recovered, when loved ones had already given up hope. I have seen far too many people show up at the oddest and most needed times in life for the term coincidence to even be dignified. I've experienced true love and through that I ha... (more »)

Hey Inkspired,

These questions require thought and can be very frustrating at times. Mind if I offer a suggestion?
Have you ever considered the fact that maybe God exists whether you want Him to or not? Talk to Him. See if He's really out there for yourself. I can't promise thunder and lightning but I can tell you that He's listening.

it is very uncommon that one should be able to put those four questions into something like you did, it tells me that you want the answers to your entire existance, and that to find them you must seek help in the answer, that is very wise of you, keep l;ooking for the answer to those questions, when you answer them you will know what live realy is

Personally, I think each particular human's purpose is different and individual for them. It doesn't have to be world-changing or amazing, either. I think I'm meant to write, nothing more. Once you find your purpose don't let anyone discourage you.
