I have not published a blog in days until yesterday. I needed some time to work on other projects. However, my spirit was not in synch with some of them. After an honest reality check, the conclusion was that some of my projects were not approved by the Lord even though they were not sinful.
What is the purpose for our life and are we fulfilling it in the Lord? Is the purpose of our life being to acquire possessions, success, accolades or status? Are we allowing secular achievements to supersede our spiritual achievements? We must not get it twisted thinking claps from the crowd equates to God’s approval. (Matthew 16:25-26)
After thoroughly evaluating and honestly answering questions about some of my projects, I put them on hold. Why do I want to complete them? How would they bring glory to God, or spiritually benefit others? Why would I limit my passion from God approved spiritual blogging for something else? Why was I frustrated, and felt time was wasted working on some of my projects?
After the final conclusion was in synch with my spirit, I shared my decision with my minister, my brother-in-Christ who is also my husband. Our conversation assured me that my self-evaluation was on point with the conclusion being for selfish ambitions.
SISTER COPELAND’S DEVOTION (Friday, July 8, 2022)
“Father, I give You every bit of my life, my past, my present and my future. Thank You for taking every experience and turning it round for my good. I know that with You, nothing is ever wasted in Jesus’s name! Amen.”
Are we walking in the purpose we were created to do? What is your Why?
