Purpose Driven Life Day 8: Planned for God's Pleasure

This was written six months ago when I was away in the wilderness for two weeks.
For the Lord takes delight in his people ... -Psalms 149:8 NIV

This chapter was a hard one for me because it pointed out just how much I was out of line with what God wants from me. It is hard for me to conceptualize worshipping Him always. I understand what Warren is saying, but I disconnect when it comes to transferring it into my life. Now that I have been made aware it is imperative that I remember to worship God with not only my occasional action bu also with my entire life 24/7 days of the week.

When I look back at this week alone, I can only think of the many times when my behavior was far from worshipping God. In the beginning I complained quite a bit and mostly I have talked about people that annoy my unkindly. I have not embraced the situation for what God wants me to get out of it. Everyday I endeavor to be better. Now, I just have to constantly remember to live my life as a worship to God.

Prayer taken from Psalms 127:11-14
the Lord delights in those who fear Him, who put their hope in his unfailing love. I extol the Lord; I praise my holy God, for he strengthens and protects my home and blesses my family. He gives peace and satisfies my needs. Praise the Lord.
