Basket Full of Squander

Sometimes I wonder why God blesses people so lavishly, only to have them squander it...

And by people, I mean me.

A lot of times I think the other shoe has got to drop... I am so undeserving in so many ways.

Almost all of the time I feel this sense of urgency to be more... to do more... to somehow figure it out.

I often complain of not enough time, but God has given me the same number of hours in a day that He has given people who have done amazing things.

But, I somehow can't escape my laundry...

Do you feel like you are fulfilling your life's purpose?


  1. This is a wonderfully thought provoking post! I'll ponder it why I am folding the laundry at my house!

  2. Hmmm, I'm not. And that needs to change.

  3. life's purpose. I'm not sure that I am absolutely positive what my purpose is when I look at the big picture of my complete life. Maybe it changes as I go through life...I don't know. I AM feeling better about fulfilling my purpose daily than I have in a long time though. So I figure I will keep taking little steps each day to keep getting better. I may not do something that everyone will remember me for, but I can keep striving to be my best.

  4. In my youth I didn't ponder my purpose. I was too busy with doing what I was told to do. With age and maturity that changed. I have a grateful spirit for God's work in my life. Only God could orchestrate my purpose and as I follow his will, I find joy in all things through him.
