The AMAZING thing is that we ALL get so ‘involved’ in ‘survival’ (our day to day business or should I say ‘busy-ness’?) that we tend to ignore the BASICS.
We are ALL here for a reason! We are not here by ‘chance’. A mistake? I think not!
Our purpose in life is the very meaning of our existence and without knowing this we often suffer ignorant of our own significance. We fall prey to the illusion that our lives don’t matter and we have no connection or impact on the world around us. The Bible offers many insights into Man’s purpose on Earth and living within a meaningful mission.
- 1 Peter 2:9 – “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of God Who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.
- Acts 2:23 “This Man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put Him to death by nailing Him to the cross.“
- Acts 13:36 “Now when David had served God’s purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep; he was buried with his ancestors and his body decayed.” In no way his ‘Spirit’!
- Colossians 1:16 “For in The Word all things were created: things in Heaven and on Earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through The Word of God and for God.
- Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the Heavens: Sorrow/Loss, Happiness/weeping, plenty/little…There is a Season for all.
Find it (pray it up ) pursue it, commit it to The LORD and watch it flourish!

Our mouths confess Your greatness and Your love for us. The enemy cannot hold us back, defeat us or discourage us. Victory is ours in Christ.
Because I am speaking to you…so many individuals in The Bible went through so very much! Joseph was sold into slavery, lied on – placed in jail, asked a prisoner that was released to speak to the Pharoah on his behalf, but spent 7 years +/- in jail! Before his ‘dream’ was fulfilled! Deep, I know.
Mary The Mother of Jesus, was found to be bearing God BEFORE she was married (people CAN do Mathematics! She went to assist her cousin the mother of John the Baptist before she shared with Joseph!) I could speak on this for days!
Yet, when she told Joseph, he had a ‘dream’ and married her! Strange, huh?
Again, we could go on and on and on…
