For What Purpose Am I Created

For what purpose am I created, I
oft' ponder? Am I fashioned by the hand
of God to know Him for eternity?
Mankind was meant to increase and expand
in the lap of His love and Providence;
ne'er to fall from grace by sin, but to live
in Paradise on earth for ages hence:
to think, that for man all this God meant to give!
For me, life's neither meat, drink, nor pleasure:
for I give Him my all in Poetry—
in flowing lines of heavenly measure;
with rhythm and rhyme; and rich imagery.
How, then, best to know the Creator God?
By walking with Him, wheresoe'er I trod.

GOD created us because GOD loves us!
Our purpose is to serve HIM and obey HIM.
although somebody says "Enjoy life while being alive"
but for me Enjoy life while serving GOD.
Thank you for sharing!
