for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. ~Philippians 2:13
Life is not without purpose. I know that I have always thought there was a greater purpose for my life and have worked to accomplish great things. I have missed one big aspect though- I never thought of or worried about God's purpose for my life. Isn't God's purpose the best guidance we can have? Our life should not be about what we want and how we are going to get it. Believe me that is what most of my life has been about; however, I realize now that it should be about more than me. Shocker!
Remember, if you are interested in figuring out your purpose according to God's plan, please join me for Lent when we will read The Purpose Driven Life.
