“You’re blessed when you stay on course, walking steadily on the road revealed by God.”
Psalm 119:1 The Message Bible
Do you find yourself struggling with staying focused on your purpose? Maybe you find yourself getting caught up in what I call the rabbit trail syndrome or another way to put it – jumping from one thing to another because we think it looks more enticing without following through and finishing. Perhaps a goal for 2015 could be that you would be more purposeful. It’s been said that purposefulness is having “conscious” intention. It is having a clear focus on what you’re doing and why you are doing it. It’s also been said that we need to devote our whole selves to the project at hand, not a part time or sorta-kinda commitment. Here are 4 suggested steps of action to help you to be more purposeful:
- A clear-cut understanding of where you are headed.
- Discipline to stay focused.
- Diligence to keep going in spite of the circumstances.
- Faith to believe that God wiil help you to live the purpose He has given you.
