“A purpose statement is, in essence, a written-down reason for being. Jesus’ mission helped him decide how to act, what to do, and even what to say when challenging situations arose. Clarity is power: Once you are clear about what you were put here to do then ‘jobs’ become only a means toward accomplishing your mission, not an end in themselves.” – Laurie Beth Jones #DrivenYetGuided #MyMentor #PainfulLesson #FilledWithGratitude #ImpactingTheWorld
Paul admonishes us to “put on the whole armour of God.” To cover ourselves with a protective coating that will serve us as we venture out into the world, a world filled with negative forces. I have caught myself before departing on a long ride and stopped to apply a coat of sunscreen, lip balm and pull on my helmet. Yet I find myself going days and sometimes a week without prayer.
All pain drives change. And then we waste it.
