Embracing Your Why by Faith

In your journey with God, have you ever paused to consider your “why?” Dave Marrs asked his wife, Jenny, “Remember why we said yes to this?” during a conversation with Family Life Radio’s morning show. And this simple reminder can be a powerful beacon of light in your own faith journey.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

– Colossians 3:23-24 NIV

Your “why” should be deeply rooted in this Scripture. It’s not just about the tasks you undertake, but the heart and purpose behind them.

In your daily life, it’s easy to get bogged down by the routine or overwhelmed by challenges. Just like Dave and Jenny, you might face moments of exhaustion or doubt. But in these moments, remember your “why.” It’s the reason you get up in the morning, the reason you persevere through trials and the reason you find joy in serving others.

Serve with a spirit that reflects your dedication to Christ, turning even the most mundane tasks into acts of worship.

Your “why” is your personal mission statement, written by your faith and commitment to God. Let this truth invigorate you, infuse your actions with purpose and transform your perspective.

Remember, you are on a mission, a divine calling crafted by your faith in Christ. Embrace your “why,” and let it be the compass that guides you in all you do.

Today’s One Thing

Pray this prayer: “Heavenly Father, I come before You seeking clarity and purpose in my journey with You. Help me to always remember my ‘why’, the reason I chose to follow You and live out my faith. In moments of doubt or weariness, remind me that I am serving You in all that I do. May my work, my relationships and my life reflect my dedication to You. Guide my steps, Lord, and use me as a vessel of Your love and light in this world. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
