Day 40: Living with purpose

I’ve reached the 40th day and this chapter is the best way to do my engraving to not forget and have a map to move forward.

  1. Worship. I have to put God at the center of my life and I will keep Him there through worship. If he’s not there, I worry. I worry a lot and now I know exactly why because I have deviated too far off from God. I do feel that when I choose love over fear then I have peace again.
  2. Discipleship. It takes a lifetime to build Christlike character but I can start from the fruit of the Spirit or the 8 Beatitudes. The character qualities that I will work on and develop in my life will live through eternity. I always have the inclination towards honesty, integrity, fairness, kindness and good intentions.
  3. Service. Paul said that the service I perform not only meets the needs of God’s people, but also produces an outpouring of gratitude to God. I do believe that the highest compliment that I will ever receive is a “thank you” from a stranger because my very existence and action moved him or her in a beautiful way.  God has given me so much, so it is rightfully so that I give Him more through my service to others and with that I and the people I served glorify Him.
  4. Mission. My life is so meaningful because I believe God is real even if I don’t see or hear Him as a human being. My favorite prayer to God is, “May You bless our hearts so we remember You and we live our life with love for one another.” I have lived my life with entitlement and I am also very sensitive of not making anyone feel left alone, and so I strive to be compassionate and humble to love everyone in doing that I may be performing my mission that they knew God through me.
  5. Fellowship. I feel like I have outgrown the ways of my Catholic Church but I have to be part of one to fulfill one of my key purposes, which will also help me grow more mature.
