Cultivate Your Curiosity 🌱 Day 19

There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight – why the bush does not burn up.” – Exodus 3:2-3

I’m convinced that the enemy plots with the spirit of the ordinary to get us to settle … to have us stay where we areto remain content and silence our calling when it knocks. If the enemy can get a woman to fear or, better yet, to ignore the holy whisper that calls her onto battlefield of purpose and significance, then she’ll never even know she’s living beneath her birthright.

Authorized to Impact 🌱 Day 18

They were completely amazed at His teaching; because He was teaching them as one having [God-given] authority, and not as the scribes. – Mark 1:22

As young girls, we slowly but steadily internalize some faulty thinking and become wired to reach for what we think is appropriate (the right thing to do) or attainable (the best we can do). When we are fed protocol instead of purpose, we settle for less. Jesus shows us what it looks like, however, to trade protocol living for permission living. Read More »

Believing in Your Gifts 🌱 Day 17

For God’s gifts and His call are irrevocable. – Romans 11:29

Your purpose isn’t lost. Purpose isn’t even something you find. It’s something you uncover. God previously designed you for it, and you’re already being guided by it. There are hidden patterns embedded in your experiences containing God’s direction and ultimate intention for your life. And God has preloaded you with special gifts, insights, and abilities, along with a unique personality, that actually reveals His game plan. Read More »

Leaving Your Comfort Zone 🌱 Day 16

And those He predestined, He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified. – Romans 8:30

Purpose is not supposed to be an ever-seeking, never-finding, illusive, impossible-to-grasp type of thing. God wants you to understand your purpose. Everything you’ve encountered – even the awful things – have been part of your journey. It’s easy to feel as if our imperfections disqualify us from being used by God in a mighty way, but let’s not forget that Jesus hand-selected everyday people to be His disciples. Read More »

Your Born Identity 🌱 Day 15

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you … – Ephesians 1:18

Purpose is not just a fancy way of finding your passion. It’s the process of entering God’s plan. It’s about discovering your divine assignment and fulfilling your God-given life mission. Here’s the thing: stepping into what God has for you will always require you to believe bigger. Read More »

The Purpose Pathway: Do (Part 4)🌱 Day 14

For we are Christ’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which He prepared in advance for us to do. – Ephesians 2:10

We’ve looked at the first three purpose clues found in the phrases “workmanship,” “good works,” and “in advance.” The final purpose clue from this Scripture is the word “do.” Just as a tire isn’t made for the purpose of sitting on a shelf, you’re not here to sit on the sidelines of life either. Everything God designs and births has an intentional purpose and specific assignment that grows and expands over time. Read More »

The Purpose Pathway: In Advance (Part 3) 🌱 Day 13

For we are Christ’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which He prepared in advance for us to do. – Ephesians 2:10

Purpose is such a powerful force. Discovering one’s purpose is more about realignment than it is about achievement or attainment of something new. In the last two entries, we explored the purpose clues found in the phrases “workmanship” and “good works” from the passage above. Our next purpose clues is “in advance.” So often we’re looking outside ourselves for clues about who we’re supposed to be or who we could be. This is a flawed start to purpose discovery.Read More »

The Purpose Pathway: Good Works (Part 2) 🌱 Day 12

For we are Christ’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which He prepared in advance for us to do. – Ephesians 2:10

As we continue to break down the four key parts in the Scripture above (workmanship, good works, advance, and do), remember that we’re delving into the topic for purpose. Each word is a purpose clue. The next part is the phrase “good works.” So often we miss the pathway into a higher purpose because we’re either looking for something impressive (worthy of praise) or don’t want to get it wrong.

The Purpose Pathway: Workmanship (Part 1) 🌱 Day 11

For we are Christ’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which He prepared in advance for us to do. – Ephesians 2:10

This is one of my favorite Scriptures, because inside it lies four keys to discovering one’s divine purpose. Take a look at the words themselves: “workmanship,” “good works,” “advance,” and “do.” “Workmanship” means that you are a custom creation, that there is no one like you. Read More »

Remembering Eternity 🌱 Day 10

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. – Romans 8:28

Life doesn’t always make sense. It’s natural to anxiously wonder whether it’s all going to work out. Faith says that we believe God to be the bigger than our circumstances and that He can do anything and everything. But God isn’t a performer waiting to fulfill the latest desires of our heart. Yes, God is the Provider. He is also Father. The core of our relationship with God, and God’s relationship with us, is love. Love is like a portal that invites us into the protective covering and supernatural plan of God. Read More »
