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.

Scripture: Psalm 92:12-15
Psalm 92:
12 Good people will prosper
    like palm trees,

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

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7
Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees, who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad.

But it’s interesting that in my sadness, I’ve come to appreciate how God works my faith steps. Before I decided that God’s purpose for me was greater than my own purpose, I had a hard time being close to people because it hurt that they might die or leave me. God opened my understanding (and healed me) so that I could come to terms with that and step into the gifts of compassion he planned for me. I started to feel that familiar hurt earlier this we…
