This journey is about finding our purpose in life according to what God says. DAY THREE I reflected on what drives my life. I am sorry to find as I look again into my mirror…God’s purpose has not be mine. I feel that I need to focus more on others and less on me. This makes my journey with you that much sweeter. As I write these blogs posts, I am praying for you…that you will find GOD’S DIRECTION for your life as I find mine
This is DAY FOUR.
Here is Day Four of “The Purpose Driven Life” by Pastor Rick Warren
DAY FOUR: THINKING ABOUT MY PURPOSE (Taken directly from the book, page 40)
TODAY’S FOCUS: ”Made to last forever!”
POINT TO PONDER: There is more to life than the here and now
BIBLE VERSE: ”This world is fading away, along with everything it craves. But if you do the will of God, you will live forever” 1 John 2:17 (NLT)
QUESTION TO PONDER: Since I was made to last forever, what is the one thing I should stop doing and the one thing I should start doing TODAY?
Here are the treasures I found from DAY FOUR:
The one thing I should stop doing is worrying…worrying about my income, about the future, about things I cannot control and I should start focusing on God and His plan for me, and how I can best serve his people.
God has a plan for my life here on earth, however it DOESN’T end here. God has a plan for you as well. God offers you and I an opportunity that last beyond our lifetime. So much more that what we see and so much more than what we can even imagine!
“God’s plans endure forever. His purposes last eternally.” Psalm 33:11 (TEV)
“This world is not my home; I am looking forward to my everlasting home in Heaven.” Hebrews 13:14 (TEV)
The deeds of this life are the destiny for the next. What we do now, with all the things God has equipped us with, as we learned about in DAY THREE, our talents, treasure, time, opportunities, etc…all those things uniquely and graciously given to each of us…will come into play in our next life in Heaven. I don’t know how, but I know that God’s plan…God’s purpose WILL be fulfilled. I choose to work with God and realize His full potential for my life…
How about you?
