Food for thought for the Day

"For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible,...everything got started in Him and finds its purpose in Him. Colosians 1:16"

I like this verse for today. It helped me understand my purpose of being here on this earth...its not about me but all about Him. Accourding to Rick Warren in his book Purpose Driven Life, The purpose of your life is greater than your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness. It is far greater than your family, your career, or even your wildest dreams and ambitions. If you want to know why you were placed on this planet, you must begin with God. You were born by His purpose and for His purpose.

The search for the purpose of life has puzzled people for thousand of years. That is because we typically begin at the wrong starting point-ourselves. WE ask self-centered questions like what I watn to be? What should I do with my life? What are my goals, my ambitions, my dreams for my future? But focusing on ourselves will never reveal our lifes purpose. The Bible says, "It is God who directs the lives of His creatures; everyones life is in His power"

I am very happy to know that God is in control of our lives. With that, we are safe and surely in good hands.
