Final thoughts from The Purpose Driven Life
This book is so good and there is so much I would like to share, but you really need to read the whole thing yourself. I studied it right after it came out with a small group. Then last Lenten season I re-read it. I’m planning on doing that again next Lent. Here’s one more thought that is so important:
When God is silent.
- “Regardless of circumstances and how you feel, hang on to God’s unchanging character. Remind yourself of what you know to be true; He is good, He loves me, He is with me, He knows what I’m going thru, He cares, and He has a good plan for my life.”
Never doubt in the dark what God has told you in the light.
- Do the small things that no one else wants to as if they are great things because God is watching.
- “If you want to be used by God, you must care about what God cares about; what He cares about most is the redemption of the people He made. He wants His lost children found! Nothing matters more to God – the cross proves that. Find one more for Jesus!”
This last sentence speaks the loudest to me personally.
