We aren’t just thrown on this earth like dice tossed across a table.  We are lovingly placed here for a purpose.

From Ecclesiastes 3:1:  “For everything there is a season and a time for every matter under heaven.”

God is not fooled by good behavior that springs from a hard heart.  Obeying Him with an unwilling spirit may achieve His purpose, but we lose the joy of our reward.

From Jonah 4:9-11:  “But God said to Jonah, ‘Is it right for you to be angry about the bush?’ And he said, ‘Yes, angry enough to die.’  Then the Lord said, ‘You are concerned about the bush, for which you did not labor and which you did not grow; it came into being in a night and perished in a night.  And should I not be concerned about Nineveh, that great city, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand persons who do not know their right hand from their left and also many animals?'”

Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness.  It is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.

From Job 36:11:  “If they listen and serve Him, they complete their days in prosperity and their years in pleasantness.”

How we remember, what we remember, and why we remember form the most personal map of our individuality.

The purpose of life is not to maintain personal comfort; it’s to grow the soul.

Christina Baldwin (born 1946) is an American writer, teacher, and lecturer.  

His Good Purpose

From Philippians 1:20:  “It is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be put to shame in any way, but that by my speaking with all boldness, Christ will be exalted now as always in my body, whether by life or by death.”

Facing world’s wickedness

Knowing God walks with thee

Surrounded by darkness

His good purpose foresees


Feeling Spirit’s mercy

Turning to Father’s aid

Rejoicing with boldness

His good purpose conveyed


Living in Christ brings gain

Soaking up trusting Word

Finding joy in faith’s hope

His good purpose now heard


Praising the Lord our God

Following divine moves

Feeding faithful hunger

His good purpose approves


Lifting up each stranger

Setting prisoners free

Loving with righteousness

His good purpose shall be
