This morning I sat down to write out my to do list. I decided to stop for a moment and think about the reason why.
“Why am I doing all of this?” I asked myself.
I don’t know if you are anything like me, but I have to have purpose in all that I do or else it becomes mundane and vain.
As I thought, I reached for one of my favorite books. “A Book of Prayer” by Stormie Omartian.
I prayed this guided prayer.
Lord give me a vision for my life. I put my identity in You and my destiny in Your hands. Show me if what I am doing now is what I am supposed to be doing. I want what You are building in my life to last for eternity. I know that all things work together for good to those who love You and are called according to Your purpose (Romans 8:28). I pray that You would show me clearly what the gifts and talents are that You have placed in me. Lead me in the way I should go as I grow in them. Enable me to use them according to Your will and for Your glory.
With purpose, I made my to-do list. With confidence, I carry out my tasks. I know that I am called to great things and being a mother and a wife are two of them.
