Improving Purpose

For we are His workmanship,

created in Christ Jesus for good works,

which God prepared beforehand

that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 2:10, NKJV

The Amplified version gives us some greater detail to ponder

For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us].

Ephesians 2:10 AMP

Its value has increased because its purpose has been changed.

It’s the same basic element (sand) but it’s value increases at its purpose improves. Think about how that applies to people and in particular to your own life. And more specifically, from the view of our being a creation of God’s. We are His workmanship but He expects us to maximize our time, talent and treasure for His glory. When we fulfill our greatest purpose, we are most fulfilled.

Pursue your destiny with passion and expediency because when you discover the eternal impact of your actions, you will sense that you have greater value than you realized.

How do we best co-operate with His best purpose so we can manifest our destiny?

Sleep tracking

Sleep is an important aspect of health. So here is what I do to track it. My recipe:

Need: 1) iWatch 2) Autosleep app 3) iPhone

Install Autosleep app them let it run. I take off my watch when I go to bed and place on the charging cradle. That starts the sleep time. When I wake up and arise, I place back on my wrist. The rest is automatic.

If you want more details, leave on while sleeping (just need to find a time to charge the watch).

Weekly, I record it along with other key factors onto a google form. Boom!

Lastly, as you dose off to LaLa land. I like to ask myself 3 L’s. How did I Live, Love and leave a Legacy?

And then in the morning I say, “Rise and Shine and live for God’s glory”
