personal journey

This was a journal of my progress through the book "The Purpose Driven Life"...after having read the book, I know that I've only begun to learn about God's plan for my life.

Day 1

Chapter One: It all starts with God.

The one sentence that really strikes me in this chapter is as follows:

"You didn't create yourself so there is no way you can tell yourself what you were created for!" -Rick Warren

How simple is that?

Point to Ponder: It's not about me.

Verse to Remember: Colossians 1:16b "Everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him."

Question to Consider: In spite of all the advertising around me, how can I remind myself that life is really about living for God, not myself?
  • Pray for wisdom
  • Focus on Jesus
  • Remember that satan uses deception and tries to distract from God

What is my purpose in life? I already know my job description: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend. I actually don't feel any great pressure to find out my "purpose" per se, but I do find it interesting that in 40 days I can find out what my purpose is, according to God's plan. Right now I am rather wrapped up in what I should be doing to help my family survive financially. Maybe my "purpose" is somehow entwined with that. Only God knows.
