Made for Greatness

Did You Know that You Were Made for Greatness?

Most of us have no clue as to the above. Many of us strive for greatness (or at least being very good at the things we do), but that doesn’t mean that we know that we are made for it, specifically designed by God to achieve it.

The same God who made us for greatness wants nothing more than to see us live lives of peace, joy, and fulfillment.

Assuming the above to be true, why do so few of us know these things, let alone live lives that reflect them?

I Didn’t Know

I didn’t know any of the above for most of my life. Then not unlike many others, I had some things happen that led me to the Lord. Since then, I’ve learned things that I never knew before, that I never thought possible before.

There was a time that I was overwhelmed with life. I was pursuing what I thought would make me happy, i.e. possessions, prominence, and pleasure. None of it worked. Back then, it was all about the pace. Now, it’s all about the peace, joy, and fulfillment God wants for all of us.

Gratified for the journey and convicted by what God has taught me, I feel called to share the lessons I’ve learned with as many people as possible. As such, I’ve written a book, titled, “Overwhelming Pursuit: Stop Chasing Your Life and Live”, which will be published in September, 2018, by Our Sunday Visitor. I’ve launched I am now blogging and continue to do the public speaking I’ve done for a while.

Why I’m So Convicted

A major part of my conviction is in what’s not being said, at least not frequently enough or specifically enough. To start, God loves all of us more than we’ll ever know, no matter what we’ve ever done. In addition, the following is abundantly true:

  • God made you with unique gifts
  • He doesn’t make mistakes; doesn’t make junk
  • You are a 10 on a scale of 1-10
  • God has blessed you with a specific purpose
  • He wants you to live a life of peace, joy, and fulfillment
  • God made you for GREATNESS

It’s Simple, But Not Easy

For me to truly grasp all of this, it didn’t happen overnight. Although simple, it’s not easy. That said, it’s very possible. By the grace of God, I’ve identified the process to get there. God showed me the way. I did it and so can you.

Join Me On This Journey

I invite you to be on this journey with me. Although you may not agree with everything I say, what I have to offer will cause you to think, and hopefully to grow. And after a period of time, if you don’t think it makes sense for you, you can “opt out”.

As with all my future blogs, I invite you to comment to me via email at

May God Bless you on your journey to Peace, Joy, and Fulfillment!!!

This is absolutely wonderful. I wish you all of Gods blessings. I think from what I’ve heard you are a great man. Scripture says that EVERYTHING we do we are to do to give glory to God. I am sure your motivation is to do just that. I was so happy to receive this and to hear what you’re undertaking. God bless you. On a personal note I don’t know if you are aware of this but I was o e of the founders of the Pittsburgh Catholic Men’s Fellowship. It started when God put Pat and I together after he read an article in the Pittsburgh Catholic written about the men’s ministry I was running at St Thomas A Becket and St Elizabeth. I just wondered if you knew that. I wondered if you were aware I suffered a horrific divorce, and at the same time nearly died. I was twelve hours away from death said the surgeon at Cleveland Clinic. Thank you for all your done for CMF. And may God bless this undertaking. I will certainly be a follower. I love to watch God work through others like yourself.

Fantastic to see this come to life for you. God is good and the journey is meant to be shared, so I am honored to be part of your journey.

May God bless you Mark in your ministry! What a gift you are to so many. Looking forward to joining you on the journey!

Hi Mark, Congratulations on your new mission!! I will be praying for you and look forward to your book and future updates. Peace and Joy, Michele Cardone PS Please send my love to your father for me (If you can’t place my name with a face, my daughter Teresa graduated from FUS and my boys played baseball with your nephews)
