I am thankful for purposeful living. Psalm 103:14-16

Psalm 103:14-16
14 He knows what we are made of.


   He remembers that we are dust.

15 Human life is like grass;

   we grow like a flower in the field.

 16 After the wind blows, the flower is gone,

    and there is no sign of where it was.

Since I have come to have an intimate relationship with the Creator of the universe, urgency exists in my soul. I have a finite amount of time to share what God has done in my life. I feel like I’m racing against time. I appreciate each day of my life. I wake up happy that I woke up! I am glad that I know my purpose and that I am here for God’s significant reason.

It amazes me when people say they are bored, helpless, lost or have nothing to do. Most people go through life without personal visions, missions or without knowing why God created them. Many of us also engage in ‘busyness’ but live silently desperate lives not knowing why we were created.

You are here for God’s purpose.

Granted, some days and seasons can be wearisome to the soul, but I live for all experiences and I see the touch of God around me. I live with constant awareness of the power that God has in my life. I'm not saying I live perfectly and all is perfect, but I live with divine awareness of the beauty of living.

I will not live one moment more than I am supposed to in this body, so I want each moment of my life to matter to God. It matters to God how we lives our lives.

If you don't think every day is a good day, just try missing one.

13 They will take root
in your house, LORD God,
    and they will do well.
14 They will be like trees
that stay healthy and fruitful,

15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

Sin on the journey

Before I know it, sin drips from my mouth and floods my mind. Oh the struggle.
Romans 7:22-23 I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free. 
My current struggle is in not easily recognizing the extent of my sinfulness. I can easily preach it, but continuous righteous living eludes me.
Ouch. It hurts. I reveal this because I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul, but the sinner in me wins. It's the same struggle the A…
