Life With a Purpose

"Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my
servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the
left, that you may be successful wherever you go." - Joshua 1:7

Motivational speaker, Mark Victor Hansen, said, "Setting goals is one
of the most important things you can do to guarantee your personal,
professional and financial success. Goals are like a road map to your
target destination. Each goal accomplished is another mile behind you
on the way to where you want to be."

Years ago another speaker said, "Success is the ability to embrace a
worthwhile goal and employ all of your powers for the achievement of
that goal."

A life without goals is like a ship without a rudder drifting where
the winds and waves of chance direct. However, even more important
than setting goals is to first discover one's God-given life purpose
and then establish goals to fulfill that purpose.

This is exactly what Joshua did. And as long as he and the people of
Israel lived by God's laws and followed God's plan, God assured them
that they would have good success. God will do the same for you and
me too as we live in harmony with his will and follow God's plan and
purpose for our life.

Prayer: "Our Everlasting Father in Heaven, please help me to discover
and clearly define my God-given life purpose and then direct me in
the setting of worthwhile and specific goals that, with your help and
my commitment, will assure the fulfillment of my life purpose. Thank
you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus loving
Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Sunday and God Bless you all.
