Your Great Purpose

This weekend, think about your God given purpose. This poem was written for ideas and inspiration to spark this thought process.

Step Ahead

Start fulfillng your purpose now;
never ever looking back
only wishing it had been done
but realizing you got off track.

Step ahead with a plan
that meets people’s needs;
that matches your values
and does many good deeds.

Have a list of dreams;
things to do and when.
Like an athlete seeing
what it takes to win.

Write out things that inspire
like a quote or Bible verse.
Find a link to a video that stirs
and helps the mind to rehearse.

Map out how to stay on course
with a timeline for tasks content
because deadlines are important
like a clock at a sporting event.

As the fourth quarter approaches,
continue to gain greater focus
so that before time runs out,
you’ve met your great purpose.
