Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Happy Monday to you!

I hope that your weekend was peaceful. I also hope that you had a chance to read my review for the film Gone Girl. If you haven’t, scroll down and read yesterday’s post. Be sure to leave your opinion in the comment section. I’m excited to read what you have to say. 

Currently, I am studying the book of Acts with my best friend. Tomorrow, we are going to review Acts chapter 12. Our bible study has me thinking of so many topics. We’ve come up with an an awesome idea concerning those ideas that you will learn about later this month. For today’s post, I wanted to focus on the importance of purpose. 

To paraphrase the bible, your life is more than the clothes you wear or the food you eat. Each day you’re a part of is a gift. Many of you already know that. Yet, for some reason you are too afraid to live out your purpose. You tell yourself and others that there are too many cookbooks  for sale; therefore, your cookbook will never be noticed. You think no one will buy your CD. You say, I’ll never have the funds necessary to start my own company.  

The truth is, you will have the necessary funds. Your cookbook will be received. Your music will be listened to. There’s an audience for you. If you only get started…

So, start right now. Give your best. Don’t put anything out until you’ve formed something of substance. Nothing created from a place of hatred is worth the light of day. So, act out of love: love for God, love for yourself, and love for others. Long lasting success is the result of forming something out love.

Ultimately, I'm trying to say that God-given purposes always reach the point of fulfillment. I want to purchase your cookbook and learn a fresh take on recipes. I want to buy your CD. I need some new music on my i-pod. I want to read about your company in Forbes. You matter to God. You matter to a whole lot of other people, including me. We, your audience, are waiting for you to make moves. So, move out of purpose.

Love,

CompassionateLee

Luke 12:23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. 24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? 25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? 26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest? 27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? 29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. 30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. 31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
