Grace And Peace,
As always thank you for visiting our page and viewing our content. It is my life’s passion to see the lives of people changed by the transforming power of Jesus Christ! It is through a relationship with him that we can become something more than we previously were, praise God! Therefore, I believe that God can do anything and that all things were created and exist because of him. We were created for him and by with a divine purpose in mind. At the very beginning of time God created the entire universe with a purpose in mind and you and I were a part of the incredible purpose He has for humanity. We were all placed on this planet for some divine reason; all connected in some way or another. And we need not waste another precious moment living in obscurity without living to our highest potential.
No doubt, God wants to make us this sharp instrument to show his glory. Isaiah 41:15 says,” I, God, want to reassure you. The God who buys you back, The Holy of Israel. I’m transforming you from worm to harrow, from insect to iron. As a sharp-toothed harrow you’ll smooth out the mountains, turn those tough old hills into loamy soil. You’ll open the rough ground to the weather, to the blasts of sun and wind and rain. But you’ll be confident and exuberant, expansive in The Holy of Israel!
With that in mind, my goal is to walk purposefully with you during this 40-day challenge from The Purpose Driven Life by, Rick Warren. Prayerfully, we can discover all that God has for us during our quiet time with Him. I do realize that this may be difficult time for some of us and extremely challenging for others to commit to this time. However, I believe together we can accomplish this with the help of the Holy Spirit and declaring what the scriptures tells us in Philippians 4:13(AMP), I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]
It all begins with surrendering all to the one who paid it all for us on the Cross. So, I hope you will take this journey with us at Hope 1 Ministries, and join us for 40 days of a life transforming opportunity as we begin Purpose Driven Life by, Rick Warren. A.W. Tozer said, “The reason why many are still troubled, still seeking, still making little forward progress is because they haven’t yet come to the end of themselves. We’re still trying to give orders, and interfering with God’s work within us.”

It All Begins With God
We look at this Son and see the God who cannot be seen. We look at this Son and see God’s original purpose in everything created. For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels—everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. He was there before any of it came into existence and holds it all together right up to this moment. And when it comes to the church, he organizes and holds it together, like a head does a body. (Colossians 1:15-18Msg)
Prayer for Today: Dear Jesus make me a sharp shiny instrument so that my life will show your glory, Amen!
