Finding purpose in every opportunity

Finding Purpose In Every Opportunity

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Ephesians 5:15-17 

I don’t know about you, but there are times when I get so caught up in ‘what is my purpose’ that I tend to lose sight of what God has right in front of me. I love the scripture in Ephesians that highlights ‘making the most of every opportunity,’ as a beautiful reminder that each day God chooses to give us new mercy and new grace (Lamentations 3:22-23) that is completely filled with opportunities to love God and love others. 

Ephesians also gives us a clear warning that ‘the days are evil;’ emphasizing the importance of making the most of every opportunity to speak His truth, His righteousness, His salvation and His Word through everything we do. 

When I take a step back and choose to remind myself of how kind God is through His mercy and grace, I no longer have to be caught up in ‘what is my purpose’ and instead fix my eyes on being extremely dedicated and awake to loving Him and His people throughout the day; meditating on His will for us and giving Him all the glory along the way. 

Today, let’s be women who optimize every opportunity our Savior entrusts with us for the sake of growing closer to Him in order to look more like Him. When we can do that, we are boldly and confidently walking in our purpose.
