It hit me right smack-dab in the face...!

Everywhere I look, and everywhere I turn... God is reminding me of the same thing..."Live in the place that I have called you to be."

This morning when I was flipping through the channels I came across Joyce Meyers' show (Oh, I love her!) This series was called Living with Passionate Purpose - Get stirred up with unstoppable passion so you can live right smack-dab in the middle of God’s perfect purpose for your life.

Needless to say, I got sucked in. Here are a few snippets I wrote down that really ministered to me this morning:

* Faith means you are willing to even be wrong, if that is what it takes, to find out what the next step is that God has for you.

* Have a passion to help people enjoy the life that Jesus died to give them. With everything He went through to give it to you, and for you to stay miserable, is a tragedy!

Not only do I long to live my life "smack-dab" in the middle of God's purpose, but I long to have joy during the journey. Psalm 100:2 says, "Serve the Lord with GLADNESS..." No matter where I'm at, or what I'm doing, I am serving the Lord. Therefore, my servant heart needs to display GLADNESS.

Gladness means: feeling joy or pleasure; delighted; pleased; characterized by or showing cheerfulness, joy, or pleasure

How much cheerfulness and joy do I display? Probably not alot. Ok, not much at all lately. So, hold me accountable, friends, to have gladness in my life as I serve my Lord!

*When you have no joy, you have no strength. When you have no strength, you have no wisdom. Without wisdom, how can we be wise to what God is calling us to do?

Isn't God good at reminding us of what He's trying to speak into our lives. He doesn't give up if we don't understand or hear Him the first time, He just keeps going and going (like the energizer bunny). LOL
