I'm excited to have Christina Patterson sharing with us today. She is the founder of Beloved Women, a non-profit providing resources and community for women to truly know who they are in Christ. I'm blessed by the wisdom she shares with us on today's topic: Purpose. I believe you will be too. Thanks Christina!
The greatest mistake I made, when it comes to seeking God’s purpose for my life, was to downplay that purpose. I’ve been guilty of making statements like:
“I’m just a stay-at-home mom” or “I just run a little blog.”
I’ve since learned the word “just” is an enemy to our purpose. It causes us to lose sight of it’s true power. It doesn’t come from what we’re doing, when we’re doing it, or who we’re doing it with.
The power of our purpose comes from God alone and He’s not “just” any God.
He is the Lord Most High!
So we should honor Him by honoring whatever He calls us to do, no matter how small or grand it may seem. Remember, we don’t just serve the purpose, we serve the One who called us to the purpose.
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.- Ephesians 2:10 NLT
