P.D. days 2 & 3

Day 2

I am not an accident

I am your creator. You were in my care even before you were born. Isaiah 44:2

I know that God uniquely created me. What areas of my personality, background, and physical appearance am I struggling to accept?
As i sit and ponder this question... i am very thankful that this is something that i don't feel is a hangup in my life.(i am not an accident) Obviously there are things that bug me about myself, but nothing that holds me back from trusting God and serving Him, sometimes i may doubt that i am capable or worry about saying something challenging... or not saying enough. I am very confident in who God had made me and just they way He has made me.

Day 3

Living on purpose is the path to peace

You, Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in you. Isaiah 26:3

What would my family and friends say is the driving force of my life? What do I want to be?
I hope they would say a godly wife and mother, who always wants to grow and change to be more like Christ..... is that the reality though??
I defiantly need to re-focus my purpose and use my time more wisely:

'there is nothing quite as potent as a focused life, one lived on purpose'

'never confuse activity with productivity, you can be busy with out a purpose, but what's the point?'

'this is the true joy in life: the being used up for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clot of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy' -George Bernard Shaw

'living to create an earthly legacy is a short-sighted goal. a wiser use of time is to build an eternal legacy. your weren't put on earth to be remembered. you were put here to prepare for eternity'

points i pondered from day 3
