Are You in Perspective????

It is so easy to get caught up in the chaos of our daily routines. The days fly by, the weeks pass, and before we know it another year is gone.

How often do we really take time to be grateful for what God has provided in our lives. If you truly spend any time really thinking about it, you realize it's not "the stuff" that makes the largest impact at the end
of your life.

  • What is really important in your life, do you know?
  • Have you thought about it for more than five minutes?
  • Are you consistently spending time on things that really matter?

We all have our moments when we take things for granted, take people for granted and more importantly take God for granted. When we get out of balance, it disturbs all areas of our life.
Take the time to make tomorrow different.....

  • Whom and what are you grateful for?
  • Do they know it?

What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed]. (1 Corinthians 2:9)

There has got to be something more....

How many times have you thought that there has to be something more to life than how you are living today? Is my life really about just going through the motions? Getting up at 5 am, getting ready for work, going in to a corporate enviroment, walking into your cubicle, going home, cooking dinner, driving kids to sports, going to bed, starting all over again the next day. Seriously, is this it?

While reading "Purpose Driven Life", it became clear that there is a set plan and purpose for everyone's life.

The question is, do you know what that purpose is? Would spending 15 minutes a day trying to figure it out really be that much of an effort. That purpose might just add the clarity that you have been searching for. Once your purpose is clear, all of your decisions could then be weighed up against it.

Isaiah 49:4 says "I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for nothing and in empty futility".

What are you laboring for?
What are you spending your strength on?
What drives you?

When your purpose and your strength are aligned to the right plan, then everything else will fall into place. There is something more, will you take the time to discover what it is?
