It's so simple
The summary first:
Just love Him!
Why that is the big thought of the week:
1 - from Bible Study - my fulfillment must come from God, not my husband or my daughter. I can not expect them to fulfill me because I will be disappointed. They are only human, and their purpose in life is not solely to make me happy.
2 - from class - it's a leadership class, and the current assignment is a self analysis. Last night's "Ah ha!" was that no matter how much I change and improve, I will never be satisfied, content or FULFILLED in myself.
3 - from reading the Bible at breakfast with my kid - What is the greatest commandment? #1: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. #2: Love your neighbor as yourself.
What do I do to be fulfilled?
What do I do to be a great wife?
Love God and love my husband.
What do I do to be a great mom?
Love God and love my daughter.
What do I do to be a better leader?
Love God, and love my young adults.
What is my purpose in life?
To love God.
Who I am
is who He made me to be.
(So I don't need to try to fix myself or change myself!)
And my purpose
is to love Him.
