What drives you?
Why do you wake up every morning?
Ok readers here we go! As I’m reading the book Purpose Driven Life by: Rick Warren I came across the questions: What drives you? Would your family or friends say drives you? What would you like their answers to be? (paraphrased at the end of chapter 3)
I’ve decided to amplify this workshop and invite you to join me on this journey of digging in deeper. Some of you were txted and some messaged on facebook asking you what you would say drives me. I’d like to thank all who responded and for your participation, without it this exercise wouldn’t work.
As I already said, I txted about half of my contacts, some family members, some friends who see me through out the week, and friends who are still out of state, giving me a variety.
Is Christ evident in my life? The question and fear of different responses haunted me. If Christ isn’t evident in my life then I am not living out my purpose. What is purpose? The God in our life. The thing that we allow to drive, control, and live our lives for. As I was txting my first contact I wanted to hit “delete” but instead hit “sent”.
Fear has the power to paralyze
I was terrified!
Here were some of my responses:
This terrifying heart check became a huge encouragement to me. I am excited to press forward in my purpose, Christ, and making him more evident in my life. I am only on the third chapter of this book and would love for you to join me on this journey.
