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.
