Not without Purpose
1 : a place (as a church or a temple) for worship
2 : a place of refuge and protection
Welcome to my sanctuary this week. Meditating on the beauty He’s created and the power of His words…
Isaiah 48:12-13 (VOICE)
Listen to Me, O Jacob, Israel whom I’ve specially named,
specially chosen, and not without purpose.
I Am the first of all things, and I will be the last.
It is by My power, My desire, My doing that the earth was anchored.
My hand flung the skies. I established them,
And when I call, they pay the strictest attention.
It’s Your earth and they’re Your skies.
It’s Your power and Your desire.
How can I doubt my purpose or Your holy word?
A life without a purpose is a languid, drifting thing. Every day we ought to renew our purpose, saying to ourselves: This day let us make a sound beginning, for what we have hitherto done is nought.
–Thomas á Kempis
