"This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love."
John 15:8-9
"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."
Colossians 3:17

When the things I do are just steps toward one of my goals, I usually miss out on the greater purpose of my life; having fellowship with the Lord. Whatever I do, no matter whether it is menial or exciting, doing it with Him is what gives it significance. When I focus on a goal and make it the primary objective, I become irritated when interruptions hinder me from staying on track to get it accomplished. However, when I am enjoying fellowship with the Lord, the obstacles are no different than the tasks that are necessary to accomplish the mission. I pray that God will always help me to remain aware that fellowship with Him is my primary purpose.
