What is my purpose?

"We look at this Son and see the God who cannot be seen. We look at this Son and see God's original purpose in everything created. For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels—everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him."
- Colossians 1:15-16 The Message

I wrote down ... "and finds its purpose in him" from a message at church two weeks ago. I often am puzzled about my purpose. I don't seem to fit right anywhere. I'll never find my purpose by pursuing it or by "finding myself". I can only find it in pursuing Him and asking to be part of his purposes. Everything else is blind alleys and trap doors to terror. Though all paths look promising at the start, it is not so.
