Welcome to the first Wednesday's Words of 2015! I am so excited that Jenni and Martha Kate decided to continue this link up for our little blog world. Link ups are one of my favorite things about blogging- I love connecting with other writers, and I especially love reading how God is working in their lives.
Today's topic is Living on Purpose, and I gotta tell ya...it took me a while to get my thoughts together for this one. I started asking myself: Am I living on His purpose? Am I doing the things He has planned for me?
I'm a planner by nature. I plan out everything, and while I think this a good quality to have, I also think it can create confusion between personal plans and God's plans. I think it's important to realize that things don't always happen the way we want them to because it's not in God's purpose for our life.
This can be very hard to accept at times, and I struggle with it just as much as the next person- if not more. We can make all the plans we want, we can convince ourselves that it is what we should be doing with our lives, but God wants us to live according to His purpose…not our own.

It is my prayer that I start focusing more on God's purpose for my life instead of what I want. I want to live on His purpose and serve Him in everything I do. I want to find peace in the fact that everything will not go according to my plan all the time, but that everything will work out according to His plan.
I can't wait to read others thoughts about Living on Purpose. Thanks for reading!
