Along with Nicky and Lesa, we are in a Beth Moore bible study on the book of Daniel. Wow … it has been absolutely amazing and I can emphatically say it has changed and is changing my life. In the lesson today she said a phrase that stuck. It can be interpreted several different ways but each way for me meant something grand.
LIVE ON PURPOSE
It’s how I feel I am living right now. On purpose, on track with where I am suppose to be, who I am suppose to be serving and what I am suppose to be doing. I am living a purpose driven life. Ok – Ok – I slack off here and there! But there is extreme focus now. When you “Live On Purpose” things happen. If you look, and you don’t have to look far, there are amazing things that are going on in your life- all around you. It’s what I am experiencing RIGHT NOW and I am prayerful and grateful for those blessings since I know they are not my doing. Not by any stretch of the imagination. I guess things just seem easier when you are living how GOD intended. As Beth says often – Can I get an AMEN?????
Tonight I was walking out my front door to get the mail from the mailbox and Guess What????? Right outside the door was a beautiful package addressed to Trinity’s Angels. The beauty was in the spirit in which it had been sent. I was not worried about what the contents were – it was the fact that someone had thought enough of the project to send something. That is was touched me. Someone I had never met and didn’t know listened to the call to help someone else. I was so excited. Talking to my mom on the phone at the same time I picked up the package, it turned out the gift box was from a lady in the bible study that my mom attends at Rose Drive Friends Church in Yorba Linda, CA. Arline Davis. YOU ARE AWESOME!!! My mom had told some people about this project and this wonderful woman ended up sending a box full of goodies for the kids, a check to help with shipping costs and a beautiful handwritten note.
NOW THAT’S WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT. GOD’S PEOPLE HELPING ONE ANOTHER. SERVING ONE ANOTHER. GIVING TO SOMEONE WITH NO EXPECTATION OF ANYTHING IN RETURN.
Well in this case Arline, you have our deepest appreciation for this box. Thank you, Thank you – Arline you were a huge blessing today to Trinity’s Angels. Your gift will be delivered the exact child that it was intended for. God wouldn’t have it any other way.
On Purpose In His Grip,

So happy that you are in the Beth Moore study. Arline is a group leader and we found the study hit us all in different ways. Beth, being a Southerner is a bit difficult to follow–so full of energy, to say the least—but she does get her point across—and with the study—–we got the point.
