What if purpose looks different than we believe?

What if purpose isn’t defined by education, gifts or passion? Isn’t determined by what we are able to do? Isn’t affected by what we’ve lost due to chronic illness?

What if, instead, purpose simply draws us toward God? What if we are called to be instead of to do?
