Pour Your Heart Out: Purpose

My good friend, Liz (Eternal Lizdom), recently shared a sermon from her pastor with me. You feel free to contact her if you'd like more information about her church, The promise!

Anyone who knows me knows that I am spiritual, not religious. Many might be shocked to know I listened to a sermon. I listen to sermon's online from time to time. I pick up a few good thoughts from some of them. This one in particular was chock full of everything I wanted and needed to hear, right now.

I'm going to be working out a series of  blog posts based off of this sermon. I hope that you enjoy the process as much as I will, and if you learn a thing or two....I think that's just awesome!

If you read last weeks Pout your Heart Out post you know that I am struggling with life. The topics that were touched on in the sermon literally covered every area of my life that needs attention. I'm excited to work through the process.

The pastor said that there are 4 basic life issues that will determine the significance, the success, and the satisfaction of your life. Those issues are Defining identity, accepting responsibility, determining priorities, and choosing authority.

I struggle in all of these areas, and while I struggle in some more than others, they are all key factors to my dissatisfaction with my life right now.

I took copious notes while listening to the sermon, and I listened to it twice for good measure. I'm going to work on one of the 4 basic life issues each night, and blog my thoughts, and plan of action every day for the next 4 days. I hope you'll check back and see what I've come up with.

If you would like to hear the sermon yourself you can find it here:

  1. I just knew when I heard the sermon... I just knew the message was meant for you, Lety!!! I knew there were messages for me in those words, of course. Our pastor provides a little notes section in the bulletin where you fill in the blanks from his sermon and where you can jot down stuff. I had little arrows and such on mine of points that I knew had to be for you!
