Let’s be clear, God’s purpose for you is not to be an addict. His truth says you have only one purpose—to worship him forever. God desires your time, talent, and tithe. Only God can fill the emptiness you’ve been medicating for relief from pain. He provides your needs to overflowing, while his love always protects and perseveres. Do you believe the rest of your life can be the best of your life?
You learn the principle of purpose in your life by hanging out with people of purpose. Observe their deeds, love, faith, service, and perseverance. It’s extremely difficult to measure yourself in the midst of a trial or storm, so ask people of love, faith, and service how your recovery program is looking to them.
Worship God, and his living water will flow through you to others. Continue to do more than when you first came into recovery.
I pray to focus upon my purpose—to worship God. I pray perseverance will finish its work in me one day at a time. Amen.
