**I am not here to offend anyone one or "push" my religion on you, I have decided to share my journey because this is my blog, please feel free to read, feel free not to, feel free to join me if you like!**
As I get older my desire to learn more about my relationship with God has grown. I have always believed in God, I have had my doubts in him, because I am only human, but my belief in him has always been strong. My problem? I am not very educated when it comes to the true purpose of life and what God is really about. I know that he is always there, always looking after me and has a purpose for my life. A purpose that I have doubted, cried about, screamed about and wondered why is God doing this to me?
A couple of months ago I was talking with a friend about the purpose of life and she gave me a book and said that it was a must read! I finally started the book today. Have you heard of or read The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren? The book is designed to be a 40 day read, because God considers 40 days a spiritually significant time period. I never knew that, like Noah was transformed by 40 days of rain (knew that), Jesus was empowered by 40 days in the wilderness and the disciples were transformed by 40 days with Jesus after his resurrection.
So today marked the start of my 40 day journey, which I will say 40ish because I am only human! After reading Day 1, which is a whopping 4 pages, I have started my journey, my quest to find the purpose of my life, which coincidentally has nothing to do with me at all!
Today's Point to Ponder: "It's not about me."
Verse to Remember: "Everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him." Colossians 1:16b
So today I know that I was born by God's purpose and for his purpose, I exist only because God wills me to exist.
I hope everyone is having a fabulous Sunday!
