Purpose Drive Life

Thinking About my Purpose

It’s not about me.

“Everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him.” COLOSSIANS 1:16B (MSG)

In spite of all the advertising around me, how can I remind myself that life really about living for GOD, not myself?

  • I read The Purpose Driven life years ago; however, when our coaches made the decision to read it ; I said, Now I know our spirits are equally yoked, because although we are all in different places in our lives; we all need to be reminded how to find and keep balance. It’s a daily struggle balancing family, professions and remembering to keep God in the center. Thanks ladies for suggesting this awesome read, and share in the daily devotions as we grow in our Fit life and our personal walk with God!!!

    I have never read this book. But due to my surroundings I was intrigued. I personally am just getting started on a greater relationship with God. My fellow coaches know why. So this book came at the right time. The thing that stood out for me in Day 1 is this ““Self- help is no help at all. Self- sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self.” I’m keeping an open heart and mind for these next 40 days. I know this will help me with what I’m looking for in 2015.

  • I can be sure that life is really about living for GOD and not myself in spite of the media by being present in each moment, monitoring what enters my space (music, movies and conversations), and spending time with GOD asking for discernment!!! Love this book!

    This chapter really hits home for me. I need to constantly remember “it’s not about me”! I try to seek Christ in everything I do but I fail often. I oftentimes pray and say Lord let your will be done but in my heart I’m still planning how I will fix/handle it. But in these times all I must do is remember my situations that God got me through. It was evident that it was only GOD! I know I can’t do anything without Him and he’s shown me time and time again! I seek to be ever reminded of His plan and my purpose in Him. Jeremiah 29:11

  • Day 2 Point To Ponder is ” I was not an accident”……… God redeems us from our sins as a lesson to us and for HIS glory… I was not an accident, I was planned regardless Of my parents plan; according to Gods plan, I was born for His purpose and glory….. Everything in me was planned; even my OCD… ?….I’m was perfectly and wonderfully made…. Amen Amen!!!!

    What areas of my personality, background, and physical appearance am I struggling to accept?. That question is a big one to think about. I been thinking and thinking about this one. The personality one is stumping me. But when it comes to my background I think the one thing I used to struggle about was being the child of divorced parents. And the fact that my father wasn’t really involved in my life. That has always been a sore spot for me. But I have started to come to grips with that part of my life. There was a purpose behind that happening. It made me a stronger person even though I was broken inside. And it made me make sure that my daughter had a wonderful father; which she does. So I had to struggle so she could have a better life.

    Day 1- In spite of all the advertising around me, I can remind myself that life is really about living for God and not myself by starting each day with Him. I must take time to show gratitude and reflect on what is REALLY important BEFORE I begin my day. I will need to continue to feed my mind with His word and monitor who and what I allow to enter my “space.” I have to leave behind the thoughts and feelings of “What do I want/need?”

    Day 2- I would say the biggest struggle for me would be my personality. I would like to be more confident in myself and my abilities. I need to realize that I have a lot to offer and I am doing myself and others a disservice when I don’t show it. I would also like to be more disciplined and innovative.

    Day 3…. What’s Driving Your Life….. What’s Driving My Life…. I can say that reading Day 3 brought back memories of allowing a very traumatic divorce drive my life, causing bitterness and low self worth. But through healing, I realized it wasn’t my fault and I couldn’t control the actions of others; therefore, I had to forgive, let go and let God!!!! ……We are products of our past, but we don’t have to be prisoners of it. God’s purpose is never limited by your past…. This is my point to remember!!!!

    Day 4….. I don’t think about this often but I, we should; .”This life is only temporary”…. I’m preparing my mind, body and soul for eternity. Although God has a purpose for my life on earth, but it doesn’t end here!!!!!
