The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; Your love, O Lord, endures forever ~ do not abandon the works of Your hands. Psalms 138:8



Time marches on....

And I think sometimes I get trampled by it.  First my word for this New Year....well, how 'bout my word for last year.

It was PURPOSE....I decided on it but didn't post about it....coincidentally Shawna had chosen the same word.  But it was interesting how different the word meant for both of us.  My intent was to find a truer purpose....to set out to ensure I continue to have purpose...not to just let my life be lived, but to live it with purpose.  To mark things with a purpose, not just to put in time.  Does that make sense? It did to me.  So I worked at looking for the purpose God placed within the common living and doing of life. 

What I found was that there is great purpose in the smallest of tasks....I just need to be willing to see the greater picture and not underestimate what I can do within my sphere of influence.  I will not belittle what God's purpose is for me just because it is not a world recognized "big deal".  I will continue to be me, and be me with a purpose.

I'm still working on finding purpose...it's a definite work in progress.  I trust you too can work at finding God's purpose in the mundane tasks of life.

I am standing firm on God's word....

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.
Proverbs 19:21
