DOING WHAT MATTERS TODAY!
Wow! I can't believe we've already done Part 3 of our 13 Week Pathway to Purpose Series. This week's topic is "Do What Matters Today" A wonderful concept if you are not sure what God's big purpose is for you. What we and Dr. Brazelton have found is that if we are faithful in the little things, God gives us bigger assignments. Listen to this podcast to find out more ideas about doing what matters today which can lead to more joy and more serenity along the pathway to purpose. Homework this week is to think of three things you can do this week to improve your self-care. (I'm going back to my weekly yoga class tonight!) Next, read about women of the Bible who did what mattered in the moment. Some examples are Lydia, Mary Magdalene and Mary, the mother of Jesus. Finally, write down all your roles; make up some creative descriptions of them like "Television Cop", "Family Financial Planner", etc. Have fun with this. And see which roles you need to emphasize and which ones need deemphasizing. We hope you have a great week. Please join us next week when the topic is "Loving Others as Jesus Loves Us." Until then....May God richly bless you!
