Created For a Purpose!

Monday morning, the alarm goes off, you hit the snooze thinking, “Oh I don’t want to get up”, and then roll back over and go back to sleep. After hitting the snooze button 3 times, you drag yourself out of bed and head for the shower. You shower, brush your teeth, get dress and fix your hair. Once dressed for work you grab a small bite to eat and pour yourself a cup of joe. While finishing up breakfast you try to watch a little of Good Morning America so that you can be an informed person then head of to work. You work all day, come home, eat dinner, watch a little TV and then off to bed. Tuesday morning repeat the same thing… Wednesday, repeat… the next week, repeat … weeks turn in to years of doing the same thing. It is as if life is stuck on “repeat’ just like a song on your iPod.  Does this sound familiar? Then you wake up one morning and ask the question: Is this all life has to offer? You have? Yep, me too.  I believe that a lot people ask this very question daily. Maybe not verbally, but maybe mentally. Either way people ask the question.

So, is that all life has to offer; repeating the same things day in and day out? Only to think that there is nothing more in this life but just live the normal life. The answer is no! I believe that we were created for something more! As I matter of fact, I know we are!

A few months ago I preached a message called “Created for I Refuse Moments”. For the message I used Ephesians 2:10 as the Scripture reference. Eph. 2:10 says: “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long.” (NLT) Notices first of all we God masterpiece! Secondly we are a new person when we place our faith in Jesus. All of that sounds great, right? But for what purpose? That purpose is so that we can do good works that God the Father planned for us even before we were a twinkle in our parent’s eyes. That is amazing to me! That doesn’t sound like the same ole’ same ole’ to me, does it you? And before you ask yourself the big question, let me answer it before hand: Yes, God wants to use you!

So that is what this is blog all about! Showing you to that God has created you for something more! I will be sharing passages of Scriptures, stories and personal experiences on how God created everyone for something!

Question? Do you believe that God has created you for a purpose?

Please join in the discussion as we look at how each one of us is “Created for Something More”
