Ephesians 2:10 lb

fog

We don’t have to spend time wondering what is our purpose in life.
Here we learn that our purpose is to help others.
What we need to do is find a way to carry out the plan set before us.

What do you like to do?
Is there a way to help others doing what you like to do?

Genesis 1:31 niv

good

When God finished His work He looked around and saw it was very good.
He saw that it was very good, that’s all, just very good.

What are your thoughts about how God describes what He has made?  
What words would you use to describe His Creation?

Psalm 138:8 esv

hand-173584_640This is a most wonderful promise of God.
He will fulfill His purpose for me…and you.
Paul spoke of this in Philippians 1:6 when he wrote,
“…he who began a good work in you will carry it on to
completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
If it seems that you are not growing or moving forward remember these verses.
The Lord loves you and is faithful.  He will not leave you unfinished.

Do you feel that you are going nowhere?
Do you not know that Jesus is leading you home?

Blessings this day of grace,

1 Peter 3:11 nlt

seek

If we want peace in our lives, and in the world,
we must turn away from evil for there is no peace in evil.
We are not to simply reject evil but to do good in its place.

Peace may not always be easy to find.
Sometimes we have to look for it.
When we find it we will have to work to keep it.

Do you think peace implies a relief from work?
Is peace worth the effort it takes to find it and keep it?
How do you find and keep peace in your life?

Blessings this day of grace,

1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 msg

note

Work is not a dirty word.  
We are meant to work.

We are to work to take care of ourselves and our families and to help others.
This note reminds us that our lives are being observed by others.
As we walk on the path what we do and how we do it reflects on the One we follow.

What is your attitude toward work?
What kind of example are you to those who are watching?

Blessings this day of grace,
