What Is Your Why?

“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails” Proverbs 19:21

Why do you do the things you do? The job, the hobbies, the trips. I heard this question asked in the movie 'Collateral Beauty' which I for one never understood but then heard Pastor Craig Groeschell of Life Church during their 'At The Movies' series ask this question. Why do you get up each morning? What motivates you? 

A job, a family, someone who depends on you? No matter what life throws at you it is necessary to keep going. You may feel like rolling up in a gigantic ball and hiding but if others depend on you that is not an option. 

God has a plan for each of us so never think you are unwanted or unnecessary. Don't give up. Don't listen to the lies of Satan which come when you start getting down on yourself or feel worthless. Run to God when you feel low. Pick up the Bible and read the Psalms. You should definitely feel full of joy then.

PRAYER: I want to say thanks for having me be born Lord Jesus. No one is an accident and every one has value in your eyes. I pray for those who may not feel that way to experience the joy of the Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
