Being purposefully aware of something or ones surroundings. Mentally focusing one’s awareness on the present moment or task. [Webster’s]
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord & not for men…
Colossians 3:23 [ESV]
Just like the famous words of Forest Gump, this scripture & the definition, well…They “go together like, peas & carrots”.
Let’s face it, life can be complicated. There are so many things that we need to do, errands to run, & people to please. Sometimes it’s just too overwhelming to get our minds wrapped around everything we need to get done in a day, but…
When we’re purposefully Mindful of everything we do, we tend to do our very best.
When we’re purposefully Mindful that our works are for the Lord, then He is there lifting, guiding, & protecting our works.
When we are purposefully Mindful that our works are not meant to make others happy, but a living sacrifice to the Lord. Then the stress of pleasing others can disappear & be replaced with peace.
I’d like to encourage y’all, as we go through this week, to take a deep breath, prioritize , & be purposefully Mindful of all you do 🕊
