What is our Purpose in Life?
What is our purpose in Life?
Matthew 6:33 ESV
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
At my place of employment each morning before we start the work day our staff opens with a devotion and prayer time. I am so thankful that I work where God is put first. This morning our devotional was to find our purpose in life. I know that our purpose is to worship the Father but sometimes it is so easy to lose our focus and take our eyes off of what we are really meant to do. It seems that being a wife, mom, friend, or daughter just takes over and I loose what my real purpose is. I am not saying that it is not part of our purpose to be the best wife, mom, friend or even daughter. What I am saying is that we can’t be the best at this life if we don’t put our worship to God before everything else.
In the mornings before we start our day is a great time to check in with God and thank him for that entire he has done for us. This could be as simple as saying thank you for waking me up and giving me another chance to glorify your name. I would love to say that I am great at this and that I start everyday out this way. The truth is I get busy then I am in a hurry and I am out the door sometimes before I ever speak to the father.
Recently, I had a friend to introduce me to morning stretches and just praying through. I have another friend that I told about this and we meet in the mornings before work and do it together. It has been a great tool to help hold each other accountable. When my mind and heart are focused on my true purpose in life to worship my heavenly father it seems that everything else just goes so much better. Then I can be a better wife, mom, friend, or whatever other title I hold.
My prayer is that today you and I both make a conscious effort to remember live out our purpose to put Christ first and worship him with a will heart so that we can be our best in everything else.
Proverbs 16:3 ESV
Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established
