Isn't it amazing to know you and I were born for a purpose! After Salvation takes place in our lives, God has purposely made beforehand good works or opportunities that will come into our lives to do good works!
When you have found who you are in Christ no one or no thing can stop you from living out loud for Him!
"Sometimes God's blessings are not in what He gives; But in what He takes away. HE KNOWS BEST."
As you seek Him through prayer and His word, your relationship and love for Him will grow larger and you'll only want to honor HIM and not yourself or others with your decisions. Your purposes, desires, goals, etc will change as you grow to love Jesus more than yourself and your "life".
