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.
