Discover Your Purpose
Have you bought into the American dream?
Are you working as hard as you can, to make as much money as you can, to retire as soon as you can, to entertain yourself as long as you can? Well, that was my interpretation of the American dream, and I was wrong. It led me way off course of my life’s purpose. Thankfully, God rescued me through a Crown Bible study! Rest in the fact that God has a better purpose for your life! He has a plan, a unique path just for you, and if you’re married, you and your spouse should be asking, “What does God want us to accomplish together? Many couples make assumptions about their purpose. They fall in love and dream about their future together, never realizing they have vastly different ideas of what real life purpose is. This inevitably leads to division and stress that pulls marriages apart.
To prevent that drift, we need to be intentional and disciplined about discerning God’s purposes for our life. Without purpose and a unified vision, time and money will be wasted. Plus, you run the risk of accomplishing nothing of eternal value. Focusing on God’s purpose for your life brings clarity and joy. It will move you from being ineffective stewards to being excited and fully engaged in the work God created you to accomplish. He’s called you and your spouse to give your utmost for His highest glory. In fact, in 2 Chronicles 16:9 it says,“…the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.”
