Wow, I have read my first chapter of 'The Purpose Driven Life', it is only five pages long, however; there is a 45 minute video that you watch after you read. This 40 days that I have committed to is not a quick thing I will be doing. I have decided that I will choose to watch the video and read the chapter in the morning and then I will think about it through the day and I will blog in the evening...
The first thought or point to ponder is "It's not about me"... I truly believe this, I know I have tried to make it about me several times in my life by thinking what should I do with my life? What are my goals? What are my dreams? Although I believe having goals and dreams are good things to have in my life... otherwise I founder with no purpose. Instead of thinking what should I do with my life? I need to think "What does God want me to do with my life?
I sometimes even thought why does so and so have what I want and they don't appreciate it? I thought just give me what I want, I will be grateful, I will appreciate it. Would I though? or would I be ungrateful and looking for the next thing I want... Besides, who am I to judge anyone on whether they are grateful enough for what they have? I can only judge myself and not others, it's not about me.
I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future ♥
