Do you ever feel like you are just floating along and not being as focused and purposeful as you would like to be? My heart is feeling a bit discouraged in this area today.
I took out the rough draft of my purposeful living outline where I had written down things to work on and goals and dreams that I would like to accomplish…things that I value and that I want to be priorities. Things relating to my relationship with the Lord… being a wife and mother…a homemaker…projects to work on…financial goals…blessing others…personal character goals, etc. The fact that I have these things written down here doesn’t make them a reality or bring them to fruition! So many times I seem to get sidetracked!
However, my heart was encouraged this morning as well!
♥ I was inspired by the chapter I read called A Pattern for the Household ~ Her Discipline ~ in the book Beautiful in God’s Eyes. It is encouragement to me to really make the most of the early morning hours!
♥ I find that there is always hope and instruction in God’s word! Verses such as Proverbs 16:3 “Commit your work to the LORD and your plans will be established.” (ESV)
Prayer and planning and a fresh look at purposeful living are on the agenda here at The Shepherd’s House! Today is a new day to press on to be who God wants me to be and work towards all He has planned for my life! ♥
Wishing you a day filled with His blessings and grace! ♥
