Recognizing God's purpose for your life

There is a reason, a purpose, God has allowed you to be where you are at present.
"To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven." (Ecclesiastes 3: 1)

As long as we abide with Him, stay focused on Him and not the outside influences we are inundated with, the Lord will enable us to accomplish something for Him.

"... forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3: 13a-14)

Once we (1) recognize God's purpose for our life, we keep our focus sharp by (2) pursuing excellence as we serve Him even when (3) circumstances are difficult and painful.

Recognizing God's purpose for our lives

Who am I?
Where did I come from?
Why am I here?
Where am I going?

I am a born-again follower of Jesus Christ, a Christian woman and wife, a child of the King chosen by the Lord God almighty "before the foundation of the world" (Ephesians 1: 4ab), to give my life in service to God and His people -- sharing the gospel, providing Biblical insights to others through my writings (blogs, books, poetry, devotionals). My destination is heaven, when that last final breath is taken. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) I accepted the Lord as my Savior in 1982.

How about you? Do you know God's purpose for your life? Do you know who you are? Where you came from? Why you are here? Where you are going?
