My purpose is to love God completely, love self correctly, and love others compassionately. I have forgiveness from the penalty of sin because You, Christ, died for me. I have freedom from the power of sin because I died with You. I have fulfillment for this day because You live in me. By faith I will allow You to manifest Your life through me. I acknowledge that You are in control of all things in my life, and that You have my best interests at heart.
We are here to change. We are here to grow, develop and unfold. We are progressive beings that have vast capacity. Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it. Progress sometimes involves risks. You can't steal second base and keep your foot on first.
"...The Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure...because the Lord loves you." Deut. 7:6-8
