First things first...

My mom is always there for me...she guides and encourages me in the most Godly manner. I truly can't write out how lucky I am to have a mom who not only uses the Bible to live her daily life but also as she helps me become a better wife, mom, and friend. It's almost daily she sends me e-mails of encouragement, blog posts, or even daily devotionals she thinks would help me.

She recently sent this Christine Caine post:

Have you ever stopped to think, “Why am I doing everything I’m doing? Is it God’s plan for my life, or is it just what I think I’m supposed to do?
The frustration we often feel during certain seasons of life is due to the fact that we’ve never stopped to ask ourselves these kinds of questions. As a result, we live by default instead of by God’s design.
If we live by default, then we will mechanically go through our lives feeling unsatisfied and uninspired. That is not God’s plan.
When we enter every season of life understanding that it has been carefully designed by God as a vital step on our journey and part of our “all,” we can then live each one with purpose and passion, whether we fully understand God’s plan or not!
And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark the sacred times, and days and years …” (Genesis1:14)

My prayer today is as I am living this life God has given me I do not find myself feeling "unsatisfied and uninspired." I want to remember I am here with a "PURPOSE AND A PASSION." We all have tough times. Some of you may be going through them now...I pray you stop and ask yourself a few of those questions Christine suggests.
