Thinking About my Purpose


Life is a test and a trust.


Unless you are faithful in small matters, you won’t be faithful in large ones.”
LUKE 16:10A (NLT)


What has happened to me recently that I now realize was a test from God? What are the greatest matters God has entrusted to me?



  • I definitely believe life is a test in all that we do. Every interaction, decision, discussion; are all tests of our character, our will, our tenacity, and so on. During this fitness journey, you will encounter many tests! How well you pass them will determine your success! We are reminded in this chapter; however, God wants us to pass the tests of life, so he never allows the tests we face to be greater than the grace HE provides you to handle them!!! *BIG AMEN*

    To answer the author’s question about the greatest matters God have entrusted in me; I would have to say my children. There’s no greater gift, test, obligation, or love than that for or from a child.

    I love the question offered in the book, what is your life metaphor? Hmmmm, I’m still pondering that one.

    Read Days 4 & 5 today. I have always believed that life is a series of tests and how you handle them says a lot about your character. Everyone gets knocked down. But they key is to learn from those falls for the next time around.

    If I had to think of a slogan for my life it would be “This life and all that you do in it is a marathon and not a race.” Anything worth having or doing takes time and effort. And you definitely get out of it what you put into it.

    Day 5 represents views of life but through the eyes of God. He put us on earth the learn, love, cherish all while He gets the glory. However, We as humans find this concept hard to master; therefore, God continues to test us through life experiences and how we respond to circumstances. I know I often fail, because I’m a work in progress. This segment put something on my my mind that I can use daily. “Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind. Then you will be able to know the will of God.”….. I’m being transformed daily from the inside out.
    I thank God for growth & maturity.

  • I see life as a series of test. The part that struck me the most was the finances. I’ve matured in my faith enough to understand that it truly is all His. But recently, I was provided an opportunity for more income and reading this today has reminded me that I’m being tested. How will I use these additional resources to serve Him…to glorify Him. That’s the test. Great reading today. A much needed reminder.
