Your Purpose

So often, we find ourselves searching for our life’s purpose. I’ve written about this previously. And yet, at least for me, that search has more or less always started with me. In our sermon this weekend at church, they mentioned a verse and a quote that absolutely hit me over the head. “For everything, absolutely everything above and below, visible and invisible…Everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. — Colossians 1:16 MSG Also, Your purpose will…

Everything in our life was smooth sailing with the move – clearly He was watching over us in every way. Everything was easy until it came time to find a church home. Ironic, no? Before we even came to town, we did research trying to find a church home – as much as one can find a church home…
