"I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do."
John 17:4, NIV
Jill Briscoe, noted author and international speaker, was once asked what she saw as her life’s greatest mission. She answered that her life’s greatest mission is “to figure out what to do every day in my life – as ordained by God – and then to do it.” Jill knows there are many things to do in life that are not ordained of God, which is why we must be single-minded.
To be single-minded as I embrace God’s purpose for my life means that there are times I have to just say no . . .
to an invitation to join my friends for coffee,
to an offer for a lucrative job,
to a long weekend . . .
To be single-minded as I embrace God’s purpose for my life means there are times I have to just say yes . . .
to less sleep and more prayer,
to less TV and more study,
to less work and more worship.
