Purpose—A New One Coming

For a long time I have been trying to figure out what my purpose is for this time in my life. I haven’t been able to come up with anything. One day I was thinking about my purpose and I realized years ago I knew what my purpose was then but it hasn’t fit in my life for many years.
My purpose then was to minister to my husband and children and the children in the neighborhood.
A part of my purpose was aborted because of divorce. I still fulfilled the part that included my children and other children. Today my children and grandchildren are grown and live in another part of the country.
Where does that leave me as far as a purpose? I don’t know. I haven’t gotten a revelation of another purpose so far and that concerns me.
I heard someone say that passion and purpose are partners. So what does that mean to me? I now wonder what my passion is. Could it be my painting, jewelry making, and cake decorating— what? At the time I was delving in those crafts I had a passion for them but that is long gone.
I’m still struggling with this issue today. Until I get a clear picture I’ll just keep moving forward in the things I do daily. Maybe one day my purpose will be apparent.

Do you know what your purpose in life is? Are you fulfilling your purpose?

Marriage-My Offering

Mary closed her Bible, finishing her devotions and quiet time.

An unexpected thought came to her.

Marriage-My Offering

What could that mean, she pondered. OH! She got a revelation. What will I bring to the marriage. After careful thought she grabbed her journal and began jotting down her list.

  • My relationship with Jesus will cause me to be the wife my husband needs
  • I will continually cover him with prayer
  • Be a Proverbs 31 woman
  • I will love, honor, support and adore him
  • I will accept him for who God made him to be, not into my Mr. Perfect

Whew, enough for right now, Mary thought. What was all that about? I’ve wanted another try at marriage but I’ve never considered what I’d bring to the marriage–just what I wanted for the wedding.

I’ll give this more attention later. I’ve got plenty time to finish the list.

Do I?
