purpose.jpgI am a healthy, wise, and peace-filled child of God.
When I contemplate my life's purpose, what is it that first comes to mind? I may turn in thought to my family, believing that an important intention I fulfill is to nurture my spouse, children, or grandchildren. I may then turn to my achievements toward a lucrative career or my dedication to serving others through my contributions.
As I continue to reflect on my life, I realize that in the midst of all that exists in the world, God has an all-encompassing purpose for me. I was created to be a healthy, wise, and peace-filled child of God. Just as I nurture and give to others, I am to love and care for myself also.
Knowing who I am and where I'm going, I affirm: As a child of God, I am a source of the love and light of God in the world. Enthusiastically, I live my life with purpose.
"The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me."--Psalm 138:8
