Being purposeful. This theme has been running through my readings & thoughts a lot lately. I think it started at the Weekend to Remember that Matt & I went to. That was pertaining to marriage. Being purposeful to choose your spouse daily. Choosing to receive your spouse as that gift God gave you in the same way that he gave Eve to Adam. Adam didn't reject Eve... he accepted & received her as his life partner. We choose to receive or reject our spouse daily. Also being purposeful to show your spouse your love. Don't just do things for him because you have to. Think it through, be purposeful about what you do for him.
I was just reading "The Life Ready Woman" in preparation for a Bible/Book study I'm hosting soon. This quote "It is so critical not to let life just pick us up and carry us along. We need to be purposeful about making decisions that will help us take control of our lives...and our family's lives. " Be purposeful when making decisions. Don't let life get overwhelming & sweep you off your feet. Think things through. Pray things through. Read God's word. In doing these things, you can become purposeful about each step that you take & each life choice that you make.
