Behaviors That Distract Us From Purpose

Discovering your VALUE and PURPOSE is an important part of each of our lives.

Over the past few weeks, I have posted some behaviors WE all demonstrate that are distracting US from establishing or strengthening OUR relationship with God.

For those of us that believe that God is real, it is important to read, study and APPLY God's Word to our everyday life. The problem is WE often think that a specific Word read, taught or preached is not directed to us so we just keep living the same life and nothing ever changes. THE RESULT: WE in denial of our personal issues that have become barriers to fully accepting God's Word.

I'm sure that there are some behaviors below that YOU demonstrate or behaviors that have occurred to you. Like candy in a candy dish, identify the ones you have problems with and take it to God in prayer. Then YOU do something about it on a DAILY BASIS.

No more denial. no procrastination, no indecision, no pride or guilt. Watch YOUR life change for the better.

1. You live in guilt for something you have done. 2. You were abused as a child. 3. You feel you were not loved or loved enough as a child.
