PDL Day 1

Greetings Bloggers!

Remember me? Okay so maybe it has not been that long. Last post, I asked you to consider why you thought you were here on earth? I enjoyed hearing your responses, and was greatly encouraged by your heartfelt honesty. The point of such questions, was to show myself, and hopefully you too, that while many tasks are part of how we fulfill our purpose, our sole purpose is to bring glory to God. by our very existence. This is not because He needs us to give him anything, everything in all creation belongs to him! Ps. 24:1 He God chose us before creation to reflect his glory, of course not perfectly, because we are sinners, yet just by being here are earth God has made our lives a testament to His Greatness! Since we were created by God alone, we will never find purpose outside of our Purpose Giver! Those are my thoughts from Day 1 of The Purpose Driven Life By: Rick Warren.

Day 1 It All Starts with God Pg. 17-21
Major Theme:

Point to Ponder:It's not about you. "( Directly from page 21)

Verse for your reflection: Colossians 1:16

Quote to consider: "You were made by God and for God- and until you understand that, life will never make sense." The PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE BY: Rick Warren

Question to Consider:" In Spite of all the advertising around me, how can I remind myself that life is really about living for God not myself?" Pg. 21 Rick Warren(TPDL)


More thoughts from just me: I don't think we as Christians would really say out loud that life is about us, but just because we don't say does not mean, we at times aren't believing it is true and behaving that way. For me personally I am often far to focused on my own level of inner contentment, instead of fulling God's agenda. Ouch that was harder to admit than I thought. So I'm interested in your thoughts, responses, etc. BTW day 2 comes next which is titled: "You Are Not an Accident" I think it is my favorite day in the book. Btw I got about 3 inches of my hair cut off, and added lots of blond highlights. The cut was patterned after Meg Ryan's hair cut in the movie "Hanging up"

Wise words young grasshopper! Our human-ness is hard to overcome and it takes purpose to think of others - to find compassion an empathy - not always easy. PS: I love Meg Ryan's hair too! Post a picture!
