Welcome to 31 Days of Living with Purpose!
Mercy! It’s October 1. The day I declared I would begin living with purpose and write about it. Right about now, I’m in a panic. Although I have written devotionals for years, published books, and owned a piece of bloggy real estate for years, I’ve never blogged more than 16 times in one month. So this girl is going to have to up my game the next 31 days.
So you ask . . . Why am I doing this? What’s it for? How did this come about?
Well, once upon a time there was a site called The Nester and Chatting at the Sky, they were sisters and decided one year to write about 31 Days of change. It was such a hit that the next year she invited eight friends to do it with her. And then the silly sisters decided eight wasn’t enough. Check out all those who might be joining in this year HERE.
If you read my Meet Alene page, you quickly realize I’ve struggled with the age old question WHO IN THE WORLD AM I and WHAT AM I HERE TO DO? I’ve spent years wanting to be everybody else. Their purposes seemed big and they were so together, perfect, and brilliant. As I’ve spoken to and taught women for years now, I’ve noticed I’m not the only one asking those questions. Thank goodness! Well, not that I’m glad you struggle to — it’s just great to have some company.
So for the next 31 days we’ll be sharing some thoughts on living with purpose. Why? Certainly, not because I have my act together and have it figured out, but because I feel the need to challenge and change myself to live more on purpose.
Why? Every action, every word, and every moment matters – so, let’s make it have purpose.
Join in and share your thoughts. In what ways do you struggle to know your purpose?
