Develop Your Purpose in Life and Make the Most of Your Time on Earth

Every situation in life develops a purposeful plan for your life. Things are meant to happen along the way to develop your character and build you into the person God has planned for you. When we try to “fix” things or control our situations we become frustrated and sometimes end up in the ditch. It’s not the plan for our life. When we learn to relinquish control and let Jesus take the wheel we are free to be who we are meant to be.

Of course this is not easy. Our human will is strong. We thrive on our own successes.

We live for the moments and we want to have it all now. We live in a culture of immediate gratification. We don’t want to wait. We don’t want to slow down.

We all have the same amount of time each day. We may rush to our appointments; we may work hard to meet our deadlines; but at the end of the day, all we really want to do is relax and enjoy our life.

Does that sound familiar?

In today’s daily devotion we read, “Develop a life-purpose statement.

It will take some time, but it’s the best time you’ll ever invest. Know why you’re here. Then decide each day what’s most important for you to do that day, and do it. By having a clear purpose, and doing the most important thing each day, God can revolutionize your life and help you make the most of your time.”

The Bible says we’re wise to look ahead and make plans. Proverbs 14: 8 says, “the prudent understand where they are going, but fools deceive themselves.”

Why not loosen the reigns? Why not let go and let God? If we lean on him just a little more each day we will eventually come to trust in His timing and His will for our life. It won’t happen overnight. We need to accept that but eventually we will be able to enjoy the unpleasant situations and difficult times ahead because we’ll know it’s all part of a bigger plan.

Time waits on no one but our God is bigger than any timetable. He lives on for eternity which means He is timeless. Why not trust Him and make your life purpose with Him. Make that wise decision today, you’ll be glad you did.

"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may"

“Gather ye rosebuds while ye may” (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

As the 17th-century English poet Robert Herrick beautifully captured time penning these words;

“Gather ye rose-buds while ye may;
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today,
Tomorrow will be dying.”
