Finding your life’s purpose can help you reach great heights. Before you find your purpose, you need to define it. It’s only logical that you do everything in steps.  

Whenever you decide to do anything in life, you take a step-wise approach. From performing reactions in a lab to cooking, everything needs to be done in steps. So, it is quite logical to define your purpose before you set out to find it. 

Frederick Buchner once said,

   “Purpose is the place where your deep gladness meets the worl

Why do we worry?

For me, it just comes naturally. My parents were worriers.

My mind goes back to final days before Mom’s death. She was recovering from lung cancer surgery and we were making important decisions.

Plans for Dad to enter assisted living were finalized. At the age of 87, his health was declining; he needed care that Mom could no longer provide. His social security payments would cover monthly payments to a nearby Veterans group home.

Mom’s small social security check w

If you look around yourself, you’ll see that most people follow the same dream. So much so that they all seem to have the same purpose.  

The most common example of this is how everyone believes their purpose in life is to earn money. In addition to that, starting a family also accompanies this desire to acquire wealth. 


This will sound very familiar to most people only because these are the words of your parents, teachers and friends. You’ve always  heard people talk about these basic things.

Many will remember a time when bankers didn’t always require proof of collateral.

The bankers and customers lived, worked and worshiped in the same small towns. Trusting the reputations of loan applicants they had faith in receiving promised payments. Deals were closed with confidence and a firm handshake.

Faith is a firm foundation.

“Now faith is the certainty of things hoped for, a proof of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1 NASB).”

In 2001, Jay-Z famously dissed NaS by rapping, "So, yeah I sampled your voice, you was usin' it wrong / You made it a hot line, I made it a hot song."

Twenty-two years later, Eddy Puyol is using the same Blueprint for his new single "Bang Bang Baby" – but in a twist, he's the author of both the hot line and hot song.

Puyol produced the bouncy track with help from longtime collaborator Chuck Hemman and its hook pulls from the artist's career-reflecting single "This One's For You."

"That phrase (

Louisiana - “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.” [Romans 8:28-30]

Orlando, FL - “Then God said, ‘I am El-Shaddai - God Almighty. Be fruitful and multiply. You will become a great nation, even many nations. Kings will be among your descendants!’” [Genesis 35:11]


We do not serve an average god. God the Father is the Creator, the Almighty. He is sufficient in all things; worthy of our praise. When we look at the mountains and the vast expanse of the heavens, we do not have to question where our help comes from. We know that our strength is found in the one who

Doing What You Love

What do you want to be when you grow up? I’m sure you were asked this question at least once when you were a youngster. When asked the question, did you have an answer at the ready, or did you need a few minutes to think about it? We all had dreams of becoming something great, like a fireman, a teacher, or a rock star, just to name a few. Well, how did you do? Maybe you never aspired to be what you set out to be or said that you would become. But then again, things change. The older we get, ou

8 O taste and see that the Lord [our God] is good! Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts and takes refuge in Him.--Psalm 34:8, AMPC

I was feeling a little weird, because Dad had transitioned to Heaven about 5 years ago, and my husband and I were going to take my disabled 80-year-old mom to visit his grave the next day.

God had delivered me of many wrong roots and negative emotions the past several years, and I knew Dad was at rest, and rejoicing, healed

Happiness is a code that all humans have. It’s deemed essential, and everyone seems to believe it. In fact, it’s gained a religion-like reverence that everyone follows.  

But happiness is something that is relatively subjective. It can be big, small, long term or short term. And since it’s more of a general term, everyone can relate to it. Some common things that make everyone happy are family, career, a good job and money.  

Fulfillment on the other hand is something more personal. It’s  yours.

 9 So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.--Galatians 6:9, NLT

God is faithful to reward our work, however we give to His Kingdom; prayer, finances, material goods, encouragement, service--He will reward it all. We are the Light in the world, and we are making a difference, no matter how it seems!

Sometimes I have been tempted to stop praying for people, especially after praying for them for

Focus = Clarity

Photographs are clearer when they are in focus. When they are out of focus, they are blurry, indistinct. How many times have you been disappointed by the result when the focus was off? Faces or objects are blurred, maybe even unrecognizable. Toss that one away a poor quality picture that does not meet the ideal you had in mind when you took it. Scratch it up to experience. Maybe blame it on the camera.


The quality of the reality pictures that show up in your life are also largely due to proper

You probably already know how having an unwavering belief in yourself improves your work life or even helps you be more confident in your everyday life. But were you aware of just how much having this kind of self-belief improves your relationships with others?

Thought:  Most of us reading this would agree were living in troublesome times.  The last three years have made a grievous change in our lifestyle.  Mandatory vaccines, face masks, social distancing, closing of schools and churches, medical care compromised, and the list goes on like something out of a bad fiction movie.  A high percentage of the masses obeyed the rules coming from maniacal dictators behind the scenes whose goal was to turn America into a third world country.
