Be 2021 Purposed.

But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. (Daniel 1:8)

I quit smoking in 1998. Just quit.

I had smoked for over 25 years, had tried to quit many times. Failed many times. But then one day, I read this verse in Daniel while smoking a cigarette.

I pondered on this “purposing in one’s heart” for a little over a week. Then decided to purpose in my heart to quit smoking. I knew smoking wasn’t good for me, plus it defiled my body.

I made a choice to purpose in my heart, threw my cigarettes out, and have never desired one since.

This coming year – 2021 – I am purposing in my heart to be undistracted by the many things that keep me from sitting at Jesus’ feet. I will be more focused on sitting and listening to His revelations.

Here lately, it’s been waking up at 4 am and spending time reading, praying, and writing in my journal.

It’s a start…

What do you need to be purposeful and undistracted about in the year 2021?

I pray you will find purpose and be undistracted in whatever it is.

Walk as Children of the Light

“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord.” Eph 5:8-10

Things to remember:

(1) Walk as children of the light

(2) Finding out what is acceptable to the Lord.

Fruit to take on this journey: goodness, righteousness, and truth.
