Day 8 – Planned for God’s Purpose

Place: In the living room

Time: 1:04 PM

Mood: Restless but calm at the same time

Point to Ponder: I was planned for God’s pleasure.

Since I sent my laptop in, I have been laptop-less for quite awhile now and still am. no excuses though!

So this chapter talks about worship and how it is more than the customary belief that it is music for God. It is something that we should practice everyday in every moment. God loves it when we do actions that praise him and are for him.

Simple acts such as sleeping, eating, talking and walking should be done as though it is for Jesus Christ.

Something that I found interesting is that Rick Warren says that worship is not for our benefit. It is not part of our lives, it is our life.

Real worship is falling in love with Jesus – having a relationship with him.

The chapter asks what common task I can start doing as if it were directly for Jesus. Well…I know that I already like to speak to him constantly in my mind, especially when I am walking or before I go to sleep. I already do so even when I eat. But, I guess a new thing could be when I am baking, cooking, and cleaning.

Anyways, my dad is back and I noticed that I have been a lot happier. I no longer resort to food out of boredom and for comfort. The days don’t feel as blahh anymore. Still, I know that I hold a bit of anger in me that I am trying to let go of…
